The Tech, Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s oldest and largest newspaper, released the results from its political survey conducted last year. A total of 20% of the school’s undergraduate and graduate population responded to the questionnaire from October 2010.
The results show that 23% of the respondents consider themselves libertarian. Of that group, 35% believe that the Libertarian Party best represents their political views. That is compared to the 9% who believe that the Republican Party best represents them and the 23% who chose the Democratic Party.
