very good visual and metric Tom

MMT = Progressive Capitalism

by taking on both of these it may land just above or below "conservativism" which is plenty good news

A little depressing that "conservatism" is number two.

pretty interesting how two terms that mean almost the same thing poll quite differntly. classic conditioning.

Love to be a fly on the wall over at the Heritage Foundation. Can you imagine the conversation:

Person 1: WTF? I thought we killed that perception...

Person 2: Time to call the Koch Bros for some dough...

Also, "socialism" is viewed favorably by the under 30 group. Interesting.

Too bad a term like Moderate, Centrist or even Pragmatist wasn't polled.
