When At-a-glance Candidate Rankings Are More than Glance-deep

November 4, 2015

Via Jim Geraghty’s Morning Jolt (e-mail version), an organization called the Leadership Project for America has an interesting idea:  Instead of an arguably near-meaningless in-the-moment popularity contest or an in-depth but one-sided grade card, they rank the presidential candidates based on a thoughtful analysis of each candidate’s conservative policy positions, honesty, accomplishments, and communication ability that is both broad and deep (see the multi-level outline of their grading rubric here).

You can examine all the candidates’ grades and in-depth reviews here.  Of particular interest to me:

  • Our highest-scoring candidate already dropped out (Scott Walker, 93%).
  • Hillary Clinton gets an “F”, 37%.
  • Donald Trump?  Also “F”, 55%.

Agree? Disagree? Thoughts?
