Endorsements from well-known politicians are designed to bolster a candidate’s electoral fortunes, but a recent poll reveals that public support from several high-profile figures can have the opposite effect.
Earlier this summer, the annual FreedomFest — a major libertarian event — was held in Las Vegas, bringing more than 2,000 guests, including Steve Forbes, to discuss ideas such as sovereignty, free markets and the role of government.
