there should be a wider range of political associations. Liberal leaning and conservative leaning feels a little too generalized. I feel there will be a lot of "Other" submissions coming your way

How do you think I should classify them? It's not too late to add more options.

I'm a geo-libertarian-market-socialist frankenstein monster. So there's no pleasing me. But you need to consider that libertarian and liberal are flipped in non-us countries. I think dumbing your survey down to left leaning or right leaning would probably work best.

Then ask if you prefer centralized federal government or decentralized local government to create laws, regulations or lackthereof. Then under economics ask if you prefer free trade or protectionism. Then ask if you prefer interventionism or isolationism. Then ask Sanders great president or greatest president ever?

Add Libertarian, Green Party, Independent, etc to political views. Marriage stance - government shouldn't license marriage as a choice.

Right-wing and conservative aren't the same thing, by the way.

I think "Conservative" and "Progressive" would be reasonable alternatives to the "leanings."

I generally consider myself moderate and I wasn't really sure what to pick, so I picked Independent.

I believe it would be best if social and economic axes were covered. It is possible to be an conservative on economics, but liberal on social policies or vice versa. That would also give a good hint at any of a person's views on the "hot button" topics.

As an "other" I totally agree.
