About the quiz
The world-famous World’s Smallest Political Quiz is a fast, fun and accurate assessment of a person’s overall political views. The Quiz is composed of two parts: a new political map that is far more accurate than the old “Left versus Right” line, and ten questions on specific political issues to help a Quiz taker find his place on that new political map.
The Quiz political map is based on the “Nolan Chart” created in 1970 by David F. Nolan. In 1987 Advocates Founder Marshall Fritz created the World’s Smallest Political Quiz by adding ten questions to Nolan’s Chart, along with other refinements.
The Quiz originally appeared in card form and is still available in that form today. Millions of Quiz cards have been sold. The Quiz was the first political Quiz on the Internet (to our knowledge) and has been taken online millions of times.
Today’s Quiz is the result of thousands of hours of work building on these key insights by Nolan and Fritz. The Quiz is renowned for its accuracy, insights, and ease of use. It has been taken tens of millions of times, reprinted in newspapers, used in classrooms, and recommended by leading high school and college textbooks.
