    CNS News :lol:

    Fair and balanced right? :rofl:

    Might as well go ahead and post news from WND and The Onion. I mean hell, The Onion has more credibility than those two websites.

    CNS was the outlet, it was Washington Post/ABC Poll:

    Washington Post-ABC News (washingtonpost.com)

    Seems they didn't like how the responses were going, so they switched questions to Sarah Palin. :lol:

    In any case, got to scroll down to 901 and below to find what is being addressed.

    A bit of reading questions and responses above and below this will give pause to any that want 'change' or 'current status quo'.

    :disagree: Not surprising the CNS News would report such a lie.

    I saw an article by Live Science that posted similar numbers a month ago, however Conservatives shouldn't take as a sign that Republicans are going to get major support all of a sudden.

    Survey: Far More Conservatives Than Liberals | LiveScience Etc.

    According to this poll, the majority of Democrats aren't even Liberal. Which would make sense in a way. I'm not a Democrat but I'm certainly Liberal. Though I have a good mix of Libertarian in there too.

    See my post above which probably explains the 2008 election.

    Good post. Thanks. The larger issue IMO is that terms like "conservative" and "liberal" really have little, if any, meaning these days.

    They don't when it comes to implementing policy because few Republicans are actually fiscally Conservative, and few Democrats are socially Liberal.

    Republicans haven't had a Fiscal Conservative since Eisenhower if not Coolidge. Hells Bells, the Democrats had a Fiscal Conservative in Kennedy before Republicans have had one since 1960. Though Kennedy also happened to be socially Liberal so today he'd either end up being a moderate Democrat or some sort of mixture of Libertarian.

    The candidate that attracts the moderates will be the candidate that wins an election.

    The Republican party has been failing at attracting and representing all conservatives. The Republican party has failed on fiscal conservatism and has gone to the extreme on social conservatism.
    The Republicans need to solidify their fiscal conservatism and modify their social conservatism to be a relevant party.
