Presidential candidates implicit association test


This presidential candidates version of the implicit association test is discussed at The Edge. I recall completing a similar test about racism (I came out pretty well, that is, I didn't associate race with the negative, if I correctly remember the way it worked).

This IAT is interesting because I made more "mistakes" this time. I am not negative toward Clinton as much as toward the idea of a person with a familiar name in the office of U.S. president; it smacks too much of exclusivity.

As for where McCain and Huckabee fall, I can't explain that.
