I will eventually aim to create a survey about cultural beliefs. At this point I am focusing on foreign policy so that I can experiment on my approach without asking you all to take a long survey.
Yes, one of the troubles with working with 'libertarians' is that it is hard to define them. Part of my motivation for this project is that, from what I have read, much public opinion research lumps libertarians in with Tea Parties, the alt-right, white nationalists, etc. Basically we are treated as part of the non-mainstream right. So while this approach isn't ideal I think it is an improvement over existing methods.
I eventually hope to target non-American libertarians. That will be fun trying to sort them out! /sarcasm
I will post the results over at Notes On Liberty. Expect that in mid-January.
I emphasize that this survey is very much a 'pilot' and I would discourage taking the results to be generalized to the libertarian population at large. The point of the above survey is to get an idea of what special considerations need to be taken for surveys aimed at self-identified libertarians. For example, looking over the results thus far it is clear that I will need to lump together non-whites into one category since there just aren't enough Hispanics, Blacks, Asians etc. to use them for most statistical analysis.
Thanks for everyone who has taken the survey. Your help is greatly appreciated.
