America’s Young Libertarian-Conservative Future


Last week, we brought you coverage from the Conservative Political Action Conference and news that Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) won the annual straw poll for top Presidential contender by a landslide. Now, the results for the rest of the 2014 CPAC straw poll are in, providing that some of the other observations we made during our time were correct: The future of the American conservative movement is young, libertarian-leaning and motivated to force priority on the Nation’s domestic business before focusing on entangling international alliances.

CPAC officials report that the results below represent registered CPAC attendees from all 50 States and Washington, D.C.
