Disaffecteds are deeply cynical about government and unsatisfied with both their own economic situation and the overall state of the nation.

Alienated from politics, Disaffecteds have little interest in keeping up with news about politics and government, and few participated in the last election.
As in previous studies conducted in 1987, 1994 and 1999, this extremely partisan Republican group’s politics are driven by a belief in the free enterprise system and social values that reflect a conservative agenda. Enterprisers are also the strongest backers of an assertive foreign policy, which includes nearly unanimous support for the war in Iraq and strong support for such anti-terrorism efforts as the Patriot Act.
