Having trouble with all of the pre-election talk of red and blue states? Slate declares it a testable state of mind and presents a quiz:
It's not as simple as liberal vs. conservative, elite vs. populist, urban vs. rural, religious vs. nonreligious, educated vs. uneducated, rich vs. poor—if it were, the terms "red" and "blue" wouldn't have taken off as the best shorthand for a divided America.[slate]

Replicating eveyone's favorite scantron fromat, the quiz itself is especially nifty-looking. Based on some knowledge of midwestern trivia, I'm neither red nor blue.

thanks!

that's so red state.

I'm in the middle too, though toward the Blue side. Damn that cultural awareness.
I know! Does it really lead to being a moderate?

I wonder if the quiz authors were trying not to offend either constituency -- though I'd be interested to see summary statistics. I have a feeling that Slate's audience skews blue.
