67% of NH Cannabis Freedom Festival Attendees Score Libertarian on Quiz

Quiz Results from NH Cannafest, Day 1&2

This weekend Darryl W Perry and I manned a Libertarian Party of NH outreach booth at the first-ever NH Cannabis Freedom Festival and it went extremely well! Over the course of three days at the festival, we found that over 67% of attendees were Libertarian or on the borderline, according to the “World’s Smallest Political Quiz“.

When I lived in Florida, I used to do these “Operation Politically Homeless” booths at various events including gun shows, the county fair, and gay & lesbian pridefests. One thing I’ve noticed here in New Hampshire is that people are generally more receptive and open to new ideas. I’ve done this outreach and outreach of other sorts, like Jury Nullification both here in NH and down in FL and it’s just easier here.

In New Hampshire, a supermajority of people will accept a flier in front of a courthouse or in a crowd at an event or in this case, stop for a few minutes, take the 10-question “Worlds Smallest Political Quiz” and learn where they are at on the political spectrum. In Florida, people are much colder to those conducting outreach, in my experience.

Here are the results from the 2017 NH Cannabis Freedom Festival:

22 of 38 who took the quiz on day one were Libertarian or borderline – over 57%
72 of 110 through day two were Libertarian or borderline – over 65%
87 of 129 through day three were Libertarian or borderline – over 67%!

Had I done the same OPH booth at a similar cannabis event in a place like California, I guarantee the results would have been much heaver on the liberal side. NH natives simply have a more innate understanding of freedom. New Hampshire is truly the best destination for libertarians and voluntarists looking to really have a positive effect for liberty. Here are 101 reasons why you should join us!

If you missed our three radio shows that we recorded from the event, here are the archives: Friday, Saturday, Sunday.

Kudos to Rick Naya and his awesome crew for putting on a great first-year event. Thanks also to all the great folks who came out. The attendees were super-cool and all of them were grateful for the opportunity we provided them to learn more about their libertarian (or not) political views. It was a blast and I hope that we’ll be back again for 2018. Watch this blog for any announcements.

  1. I did this with the LP; at a fair in California two years in a row. I think there is a type that stops at these booths which might affect the results. That said, the worst IMO was a guy, a recent immigrant from Mexico, who when asked questions about his preference on government policy, responded that it wasn’t his place to comment ‘their in charge of those things’. When pressed he seemed honestly confused as to why he would think about these things at all and refused to give a personal preference.

  2. “In New Hampshire, a supermajority of people will accept a flier in front of a courthouse or in a crowd at an event or in this case, stop for a few minutes, take the 10-question” Super majority? How did you come up with that one? You have a few people who take this so called “test” and you compare it against the population of New Hampshire. Again, you take way to many liberties with your BS. they way you make your statements Disneyland must be right around the corner.

  3. “Disneyland,” Jacks? Now that’s not very imaginative. You know, Jacks, I think you need some inspiration. You should take that 10-question quiz. Or better yet, even the more comprehensive 40-question quiz!

    Do you know where you lie on the Nolan Chart, Jacks? I think I have a good idea where you might be. We should compare notes on that later. Would you care to make some bets?
