Is there any reason to believe that the measured affinity dimension would correspond to the "ordinary meaning" of the words? Can the automatic process accidentally swap the pole names (meaning that the measured right would actually correspond to the traditional left)?

In politics, "Left" and "Right" often mean different things to different people. Still, the rating patterns of most people who self-identified as "left" or "socialist" is quite distinct from those who self-identified as "right" or "conservative".
