During an interview with the Rose Unplugged radio program, Santorum revealed an interesting tidbit about his Rubio endorsement: he took an online quiz on which presidential candidate he sides with the most.

Santorum took the quiz on the website "ISideWith.Com" Santorum revealed he scored 97% Santorum, but here's the catch....

There's a website, you may have seen this website, called Isidewith.com and it's a website if you go on there you can do a questionnaire — really detailed questionnaire actually — about your positions, and then when you finish the questionnaire, it tells you who you're closest with, which person, which presidential candidate you align with most-closely. And I aligned with myself 97% of the time, which I felt was really funny. That wasn't bad that I agreed with myself 97% of the time. So I thought, well that's good, but here's the interesting thing: I sided with Marco Rubio, 98% of the time. So, I agreed with him more than I agree with me.
