    1. For how long have you held your current political beliefs/positions/opinions, what opinions did you use to have before and why did you previously hold said opinions?

      Asked mainly because:

      1. I'm 14, so I've only been seriously politically engaged/active for a few months at best (for context, here I am not knowing that voter suppression is even a thing literally 6 months ago, go a few more months back and I'm not sure if I even know Biden is a candidate)

      2. In r/politicalcompass (a sub I probably frequent too much) people often posted their 'political journeys' showing how their political beliefs have changed but:

      • there's not enough context for you to know what has changed and whyou they have changed

      • These changes often happen in a span of 5 years, which seems pretty unlikely (the part about your political beliefs changing is mostly aimed at 40+people who have seen enough change in the world (although from what I've heard from you, barely) to change your political opinions

      • It's literally a sub trying to boil down political opinions into a square/cube, so what else could I possibly expect.

      It's really interesting and pretty useful to know how the 2 US parties are split and which voting blocks have dissappeared and emerged over time and some blocks don't really fit all too well in the 2 parties (most notably the religious left). This also serves as a kind of model for what a multiparty US might look like.
