    https://notesonliberty.com/2017/01/02/nol-foreign-policy-results-preliminary/ And preliminary results are up. I still have a lot of data cleaning to do, so take it all with a grain of salt.

    @Abortion/Marriage 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. @Self-identified libertarians 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.

    I am a poli sci graduate student over in California. At the moment I'm working towards creating a 'libertarian public opinion' project. My goal is to better understand the policy preferences of self-identified libertarians and other like-minded individuals. While I think libertarian policy is unified in many policy areas, I do think there are areas where there is still much debate within the movement and I am interested in what is driving these differences. For example the LP platform has traditionally been pro-choice on the abortion issue, but you have notable figures like Ron Paul who are pro-life. At the moment I am playing around with a pilot version of a foreign policy quiz. If you have 10-15 minutes to spare I would appreciate it if you guys would take it. It can be found here. Emphasis on it being a 'pilot'. I am still working on the word choice and what questions to add/remove. If you have any feedback on the survey design feel free to contact me via PM. Thank you for your time and happy holidays everyone.
