I have taken the quiz, and I was categorized as a disaffected Democrat. I am a democrat, but I needed to research exactly what a disaffected one was. Here is what Pew Research had to say:
Defining values: Disaffected Democrats strongly believe the economic system unfairly favors powerful interests and that business corporations make too much profit. Relatively few believe their family has achieved the American Dream, and 24% believe it is out of reach for their family. Most say the government should do more to help the needy and that poor people have hard lives because government benefits do not go far enough to help them live decently. In contrast to other Democratic-oriented groups, a majority (63%) characterizes government as “almost always wasteful and inefficient.”
Political attitudes: Though less politically engaged, Disaffected Democrats share Solid Liberals’ disapproval of Donald Trump: 91% disapprove of his job performance, including 85% who do so strongly. Just 43% of Disaffected Democrats say voting gives people like them some say about how the government runs things, the lowest percentage of any typology group.
Who they are: Over half (56%) of Disaffected Democrats are non-white. Highly financially stressed, they are the least likely to own a home and – along with Devout and Diverse – would have a tougher time than other typology groups if they needed to live off of their savings.
Lifestyle notes: Most Disaffected Democrats (55%) say they have lived in or near their local community for their entire life. Most (58%) say they enjoy volunteering “a lot.”
My ideological placement would be a Solid Democrat because I would like to stand firm in my beliefs, but also because the quiz defines them as financially comfortable, highly educated, and expressing liberal attitudes on virtually every issue. I do mostly agree with the results, and how the quiz defines me. While it is not completely accurate, it does display most of my beliefs, my lifestyle, and my voting record accurately which is “while support for democracy as a principle is widespread, many citizens have become less satisfied with the way democracy performs” (Klingemann, H., 2015)
