Ideology: Three Deep South States Are the Most Conservative
Actually, what's interesting about those stats is that self styled conservatives have an advantage in all 50 states. The only place liberals outnumber conservatives is in DC itself. Interesting isnt it?
And also among the poorest of the states.
Thanks for turning me on to that site. Some really interesting stuff. Did you know that by region, the south, meaning the center of the Republican Party, had the largest increase in the uninsured? Couldn't ya just die? The people that fight health care are the ones that don't have it.
And DC has the least amount of government representation.
They're famous for voting against their own best interests.
Either that, or they're just plain stupid.
Nothing like good ole arrogant leftist elitism proudly on display!
I'm pissed. My home state didnt make it. I may have to move. Either that or elect more conservative Republicans.
How do they define the terms, I wonder.
Just what I figured. There are no conservative and no liberal states. In every state in that chart, more than half of the people had a contrary opinon. I'm suprised at Gallup, one of our oldest and most reputable polling organizations. The have signed in on the premise that America is a political battlefield between conservatives and liberals. The two parties have taken control of the levers of power to the point the legal barriers to a viable third party challenge normally dead before it's born. Now are we to assume that there are only two trains of political thought too?
In my mind, the poll shows exactly the opposite being true.
Among liberals, everything is a consensus because they are made up of gays and blacks and Hispanics and Muslims and feminists and so on. So many groups with very different agendas and interests.
Conservatives are white and Christian with little education. They vote and march in lockstep. Conservatives accuse liberals of doing that, but just looking at the make up of the Democratic party and it's "rainbow coalition", that is obviously false and silly.
