Boise, Idaho, State University poll shows strong libertarian streak in state

In a poll conducted by univeristy professor Jim Weathersby, 531 respondents to the university's 16th Annual Idaho Public Policy Survey showed strong libertarian leanings despite the fact most register as Republicans. "There's a very Libertarian nature of the Idaho voter, which is consistent with the response to protecting Constitutional rights over terrorism. People's Republican status may be just from that tradition of a very strong Republican party organization. We're a conservative state, but there is this Libertarian, 'Don't tread on me' view in people's lives," Weatherby said.
