43% See GOP As Party Committed to Individual Freedom; 41% Say It’s the Democrats

Forty-three percent (43%) of voters nationwide believe Republicans are the political party most committed to “Individual Freedom.” A Political IQ national survey found that 41% believe it’s the Democrats. The poll, conducted by Scott Rasmussen, found that 10% don’t believe either party is committed to that ideal while 6% are not sure.

Not surprisingly, 86% of Republican voters see their party as committed to this ideal. Seventy-nine percent (79%) of Democrats say the same about their party. As for Independents, 35% pick the GOP, 30% say the Dems, and 23% neither.

Voters under the age of 35 are more likely to see the Democrats as the party of Individual Freedom. Voters over 55 take the opposite view. Those in between are evenly divided.

The survey of 1,842 Likely Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen using a mixed mode approach from October 23-24, 2020. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Most respondents were contacted online or via text while 203 were contacted using automated phone polling techniques. Online respondents were selected from a list of Registered Voters and through a process of Random Digital Engagement. The Likely Voter sample was derived from a larger sample of Registered Voters using screening questions and other factors. Certain quotas were applied to the larger sample and lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
