Schaffer and Udall: Whom do you vote like?

The Rocky Mountain News is taking a survey of how readers would vote on particular issues and then telling participants how Schaffer and Udall voted on those same issues. I voted with Schaffer on 15/20, though it could easily have been 17/20 as I was unsure on two of the ones where I voted differently. I encourage you all (especially those who support principled leaders like Schaffer to participate in the survey). My results are below, along with how Schaffer and Udall voted. If you don't have an opinion on an issue, may I suggest you vote the same way Schaffer did?
