Reuters Poll: Almost 20 Percent Of Americans Consider Themselves Libertarian

Taylor Tyler,

A new Reuters poll found that 19 percent of Americans consider themselves to be libertarian. "One in five Americans consider themselves libertarian, with younger adults being the most likely to adopt the label," according to Reuters. "Among adults aged 18 to 29, 32 percent consider themselves libertarian. Just 12 percent of Americans age 60 or older consider themselves libertarian." But despite increasingly anti-big government sentiments, many respondents say they want to keep around federal safety net programs.
