Description

Despite conventional wisdom linking the Tea Party movement with the libertarian arm of the Republican Party, a majority of libertarians (61 percent) say they do not consider themselves a part of the Tea Party movement. Libertarians, who comprise seven percent of the public, also hold positions on many important economic and social issues that are distinct from the Tea Party and Republicans overall.
