The actual CPAC straw poll was, for the fifth time, dominated by young libertarians. No surprise: 78 percent disapproved of “NSA’s use of data collection.” Some kind of surprise: 41 percent wanted to legalize marijuana, 21 percent wanted just medical marijuana legalized, and only 33 percent wanted it to remain illegal. That spoiled the results of the straw poll, which I’ve written below, parenthetically noting the results from 2013.
Weasel Dave Weigel is apparently surprised (I dunno how else to interpret the hairball chunk of gibberish he hocked up in the above paragraph) to find that the same young libertarians who support Rand Paul also favor legalizing pot by a plurality, or a clear majority if medical weed is included.
This was a guy the juicebox mafia journojizzers touted as an “expert” on the thinking of the right.
