I’m certain this will be reported on the three national newscasts, PBS, MSNBC, and CNN.
To me, the one thing poll shows is that a lot of people claiming to be conservative must have either stayed home and didn’t vote, or voted only for their state and local elections and not for President, or voted for The Zero™. I did read last week that less people voted in 2008 than in 2004.
(CNSNews.com) – Americans who consider themselves conservatives now outnumber Americans who consider themselves liberal by almost two to one, according to a new poll by the Washington Post and ABC News.
In the poll of 1,001 adults conducted between July 15-18, respondents were asked: “Would you say your views on most political matters are liberal, moderate, or conservative?”
Thirty-eight percent said they were conservative, while only 20% said they were liberal. Thirty-nine percent, meanwhile, said they were moderate.
The percentage of self-described conservatives has increased since President Barack Obama was inaugurated in January and the percentage of self-described liberals has diminished. A Washington Post poll conducted in mid-January, shortly before the inauguration, showed 32% saying they were conservative, 24% saying they were liberal and 42% saying they were moderates.
