Neopolism (neologism + politics)

A “neopolism” (neologism + polictics) is a new political word. “Neopolism is the word we use around here to designate a neologism with a political bent” is from Time magazine in December 2011.
 
“Neopolism” has had no use anywhere else besides Time, where “neopolisms” was first mentioned on January 6, 2011.
