Democrats Have More Positive View of the Term “libertarian” than Republicans do

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.
