Results of the Cabinet Matching Game

A couple weeks ago, I published a simple game for political nerds. Assuming the next president must build a cabinet from current candidates for the Republican nomination for president, how would you assign candidates to cabinet positions.

This was meant to be a fun exercise for people who spend too much time thinking about politics. Like the leaders-eat-last poll, this required hide, often dissatisfying choices. As a result, only six people completed the exercise which took up to a half hour.

Here’s the cabinet you put together, using only the top position for candidate:

  * Carly Fiorina: Secretary of Commerce
  * Ben Carson: Secretary of Health and Human Services
  * Jeb Bush: (4-way tie) Secretary of Commerce, Secretary of State, Secretary of Interior, Secretary of Energy
  * Ted Cruz: Attorney General
  * Rand Paul: Secretary of Treasury
  * Marco Rubio: Secretary of Energy
  * Scott Walker: Secretary of Labor
  * Chris Christie: Secretary of Veterans Affairs
  * Mike Huckabee: Secretary of Agriculture
  * Donald Trump: Secretary of Treasury
  * John Kasich: Secretary of Interior
  * George Pataki: Secretary of Trasnportation
  * Jim Gilmore: Secretary of Housing and Urban Development
  * Bobby Jindal: Secretary of Education
  * Lindsey Graham: Secretary of Defense
  * Rick Perry: Secretary of Homeland Security
