Our algorithm matches you to candidate’s answers based on the following metrics:

Similarity: Is your stance on this issue similar to the candidate’s stance? If so, how similar is it?

Importance: How important is this issue to you? If you forgot to select the importance of an issue, you can go back and update your answers.

Conviction: How consistent and committed to this issue is the candidate and how likely are they to follow through on a campaign promise? Our news feed is constantly analyzing daily news, campaign finance data, and government voting records to determine what a candidate’s top issues are, how they voted on an issue in the past, where they get their money from, and how often they change their position on an issue.

Our goal is to make it easy for you to stay updated on where candidates side on issues that are important to you.
