According to a NYT opinion piece
the Republican Party is far to the right of mainstream conservative parties in Britain, Canada and Germany, and to the right even of groups like the National Rally (formerly the National Front) of France.
Are there any academic/empirical studies that quantify this level of right-wingness or radical-rightness of the Republican party, compared to (right-wing) parties in Europe? More precisely, on what dimensions/issues does the Republican party differs substantially from right-wing parties in Europe?
I'm hoping there is empirical data like this Pew study on US vs European values, but split by party, rather than just country averages, and hopefully with more "standard" political issues surveyed.
And yes, Europe-wide party averages on some issues have been computed in certain surveys, e.g.
Basically, where would the GOP fit on such a map now (not necessarily on exactly those 3 issues)?
