An interesting poll was released by the Pew Research Center yesterday. They polled people on whether they viewed certain terms positively or negatively.
Reactions to the word “libertarian” are evenly divided — 38% positive, 37% negative. On balance, Republicans view “libertarian” negatively, Democrats are divided, while independents have a positive impression of the term.
States’ rights actually polled far better than libertarian, with 77% positive and only 15% negative. The poll’s topline can be viewed here.Published in
