Question about Drudge

I'm trying to figure out what to make of this poll, especially the numbers he has coming in from Iowa. The thing is, I'm not sure who Drudge's regular customers are.

What percentage of his readers would you call:
"hard core libertarians"

I'm asking because I would like to have a reference point for the numbers. For instance, if most of his readers are neo-cons, our lead is a lot more telling than if the majority of his readers are libertarian-types. The thing is, I have no idea who visits his page.

Thanks all.

no idea

but it seems like all the radio guys basically just get all of their show prep from that site. they just go down the page and disregard anything positive about Ron Paul. Rush mentioned that he checked drudge almost exclusively during his vacation

DR was a new media aggregator before that model was popular.

A one stop political head punching which leans anti-establishment or little 'r'.

Reminds me of Michael Rivero (WRH) but less extreme. Or perhaps it's the other way around where MR is a more extreme DR. I'm not sure which came first.

Rush Limb. made his money off of Drudge

Before everyone had developed the habit of reading online news, Rush would form his program from just reading the Drudge Report links. Drudge is the guy that broke the Monica Lewinsky story.
However, everybody who is anybody in the Beltway reads Drudge. Even Janet Naplitano takes the Big Sis moniker as a sign she's "made it".

In my opinion, he's the Newspaper of America.

Well, whoever they're supported by,

it's a very popular site that is open to all factions. They basically just link up stories appearing somewhere in the internet media world. You have to draw your own conclusions. There may be some intent by the way the stories are listed, or posted, but all in all, it's just a big message board with no comments allowed. They've been fairly friendly towards Paul all along. They're anti status quo, so they're naturally with Paul. Dr.Paul is creaming them in the poll today, and I'd say this is the most representative poll so far, by a long shot! Over 300,000 people voting in - no screening - no coaching - no clever manipulation. This punks all the other "so called" polls!

My father loves Drudge and he's a neo-con. So neo-con that he'd send me to Iran, I think.

Of all the Drudge links I've ever received, they were almost exclusively neo-cons.
