Here’s a good place to start.
In an article by Politico, reporter Jonathan Swan wrote, “Democrats and Republicans alike are using a combination of ‘laboratory testing’ and ‘laptop tracking’ to determine whether they’re members of the same party.”
The Politico article also cited a number of other studies that suggested that the Democrats have the most political “laboratories” than the Republicans.
Here’s a chart showing the Democrats’ political labs (from data from the Center for Responsive Politics):As you can see, the Democratic labs are actually the least partisan, and they are a little bit more varied in the results.
That said, if you’re looking to get a better idea of your party’s political makeup, it’s best to use the “lab” designation as it’s the easiest way to determine your political affiliation.
The Democratic labs, on the other hand, are pretty much the only way to accurately determine your affiliation.
If you are a Democrat and you vote, you are definitely a Democrat.
If you are unsure, ask the person next to you whether you are an “independent” or a “major party” and if you don’t have a good answer, ask your boss, your supervisor, or the local election office.
It’s always good to get your political opinions from someone who has been directly involved in your life, but it’s even better if you can get your opinions from a reliable source.
Here’s how to do it.
