Reason Foundation poll

The Reason Foundation and Arthur N. Rupe Foundation recently collaborated on a public opinion poll. According to its website, the Reason Foundation "advances a free society by developing, applying, and promoting libertarian principles, including individual liberty, free markets, and the rule of law."

Here are a few of the poll results that may be of interest to Libertarians:

4.5% of respondents described their political philosophy as libertarian. People with college degrees were more likely to describe themselves as libertarian. Among Tea Party supporters, 9.7% described themselves as libertarian.

74% of respondents said the federal government should have spending cap.

56% said they favor replacing the current federal tax system with a flat tax.

51% said they pay too much in taxes.

69% said states should have the power to decide how to regulate medical marijuana.

80% said they might consider voting for an independent or third-party candidate for president in 2012.
