Although this comes from a libertarian organization, the quiz itself seems to be ok. The quiz got a good review from The Washington Post and others. 

Try it, though you probably won’t be surprised at your result.
  
TEST WHERE YOU ARE POLITICALLY 

You’ll be asked just 10 questions, and then it instantly 
tells you where you stand politically. It shows your position 
as a red dot on a “political map” so you’ll see exactly where you score.

 

The Quiz has gotten a lot of praise. The Washington Post said it 
has “gained respect as a valid measure of a person’s political leanings.” 
The Fraser Institute said it’s “a fast, fun, and accurate assessment 
of a person’s overall political views.”  Suite  University said it is the 
“most concise and accurate political quiz out there.”

I’m a centrist. Seems legit?

It didn’t surprise me that I was a straight liberal:  90 personal or social issues and 20 economic.

I had exactly the same score! However, I answered some of the economic questions with “maybe” and that might have moderated my economics score.

Yeah, I see “maybe” as recognizing that under some circumstances what might normally be, say, a “no” could be a “yes”. 

Apparently they give a half point to each side for a “maybe”.  Although it would be more complex, it might be more accurate if they had us give a number from, say, one to five for complete no to complete yes.  (But what do you expect of those “for me or against me” Libertarian extremists?  LOL  )
