The report was recently published based on those phone surveys. I didn't know why they were asking the questions then - now I do.
Here's the report of the study I participated in.
The survey looked at the "political typology" and the defined characteristics.
On the Pew Research Webpage you can take a quiz to see how you fit into the political typology.
It shouldn't surprise you - but you never know, it might.
By the way - so there is absolutely no question on the readers part about why I write what I write....
Here's my political typology.
