Editor’s Note – Conservative oriented Americans continue to make up the vast majority of American citizens, and the numbers are rising.
It is truly astounding that just 20% of Americans identify themselves as liberal, yet, this misguided philosophy dominates the political spectrum.
And the trends are moving in the ‘right’ direction, pun intended! A very clear indication that America, having seen what Obama and the far left are all about, is rejecting this ideology.
With the media in the bag and Hollywood and the entertainment industry carry their water, the left will continue to present themselves as the consensus in this country, the wave of the future…yet, as this poll indicates, that representation will be just as hollow as their radical agenda to improve America.
In 2010, Conservatives Still Outnumber Moderates, Liberals
By Lydia Saad
PRINCETON, NJ — Conservatives have maintained their leading position among U.S. ideological groups in the first half of 2010. Gallup finds 42% of Americans describing themselves as either very conservative or conservative. This is up slightly from the 40% seen for all of 2009 and contrasts with the 20% calling themselves liberal or very liberal.
The 2010 results are based on eight Gallup and USA Today/Gallup surveys conducted from January through June, encompassing interviews with more than 8,000 U.S. adults. The 42% identifying as conservative represents a continuation of the slight but statistically significant edge conservatives achieved over moderates in 2009. Should that figure hold for all of 2010, it would represent the highest annual percentage identifying as conservative in Gallup’s history of measuring ideology with this wording, dating to 1992.
Seven in 10 Republicans continue to call themselves conservative, similar to 2009, while most of the remaining Republicans identify as moderate. Since 2002, however, the percentage conservative has increased by 10 points.
The ideological orientation of Americans seen thus far in 2010 would represent a record-high level of conservatism (since at least 1992) if it is maintained for the full year. This follows an increase in the percentage of conservatives in 2009 that was fueled by heightened conservatism among independents, a pattern that continues today.
