Fellman’s Candidate Selection Matrix™February 17, 2016
At a time when the election cycle is too long, and the media spends too much of its time providing poll results, rumors, tweets and commentary rather than facts, it is vitally important that voters take time to cut through the fog and evaluate objectively which candidate(s) are, in their view, best qualified to be president of the United States.
Because voters across the nation represent different backgrounds, socio-economic statuses, core values, etc., individuals may draw vastly different conclusions about qualifications, but an objective approach helps to ensure that each person’s conclusions are based on objective criteria.
Below is a link to a matrix I designed to help voters evaluate those candidates that are of interest to them. Even if you think you have already made a decision, try completing the spreadsheet. The results may surprise you!
Fellman’s Candidate Selection Matrix (Note: Depending on which program you use, you may have to select “enable editing.”)
After you complete the matrix, I would love to know
- Did you have enough information about the candidates to rate them?
- Were you surprised by your results?
- Can you tell who my personal choice is from the matrix? (I tried really hard to be objective and asked friends from both parties to test it!)
