Guardian Quiz Says I’m ‘Most Similar To Viktor Orban!’

If you want a laugh this weekend, try the latest Guardian quiz, to determine how much of a populist you are!

Being the Guardian, of course, you have to supply ‘demographic information’ before you take the quiz

A lot of it is unremarkable, like

Where do you live, age, etc.

But you KNOW it’s gotta be the Guardian when they ask if you are a man, a woman or a thing!





But the sheer meaninglessness of the word ‘populist’ comes across loud and clear when, among the parties and persons listed as such, we find the far-left Podemos party in Spain.

However, I was greatly pleased when, having answered their questions, I was deemed most dissimilar to that party’s leader…

You’re least similar to:
Pablo Iglesias
Leader of Podemos

This quiz uses questions devised by academics who belong to Team Populism, a scholarly grouping from around the world. Your responses are used to situate you on a grid which plots your position on a left-right ideological axis against your position on an axis representing degrees of populism. For the example responses by prominent position, we asked a number of experts to take the same quiz as if they were the politician in question. Full methodology here.
