Liberty’s Locales

To accompany Jordan Lee’s fascinating findings on potential libertarian battlegrounds, I thought I would bring you this nicely sharable summary of the best and worst places to try your hand as a libertarian. Constituencies have been ranked based on the basis of the “Euclidean distance” between the constituency and a theoretically perfect libertarian profile giving equal weight to YouGov’s size of state and libertarianism metrics.

It is a shame that there are not credible libertarian parties but hopefully sharing our experiments with demographic data will help ensure there are credible voting options in 2020. Do share widely.

    Interesting, especially considering that if one ranked MPs, one suspects that the MP for Clacton (or perhaps I should say ‘outgoing MP’) must be one of the most libertarian.

    I wonder if there is any connection.
