NO SURPRISE HERE: DEMOCRATS ARE LIBERAL

Posted by Tim Bryce on January 9, 2019

BRYCE ON POLITICS

– At least, according to Gallup.

The Gallup organization has just published an on-going study on trends in political ideology, titled, “U.S. Still Leans Conservative, but Liberals Keep Recent Gains” (Jan 8th). Not surprising, conservatives continue to outnumber liberals by 35% to 26%. Nor is it a surprise that 76% of Republicans consider themselves conservative.

The startling news here is, for the first time ever, the majority of Democrats now consider themselves liberal as opposed to moderate or conservative. Whereas I have always thought of Democrats as being liberal, I have had many Democrats over the years push back claiming this is simply not so. Now, according to Gallup, there is evidence confirming this suspicion. Whereas is was 50% in 2017, it went up a single tick (51%) in 2018, to push them over the top to clinch the majority.

According to the study, here is how DEMOCRATS viewed themselves:

51% – Liberal
34% – Moderate
13% – Conservative

And here is how REPUBLICANS viewed themselves:

76% – Conservative
22% – Moderate
04% – Liberal

Last, but certainly not least, here is how INDEPENDENTS saw themselves:

45% – Moderate
28% – Conservative
22% – Liberal

Not surprising, it is the Moderate Independents that both parties are wooing as we approach 2020. Conservatives and liberals have their own unique perspective, but is is the moderates the news media is after in terms of shaping their opinion.

Interestingly, the study reveals there are two groups perfectly balanced between being conservative and liberal: Women and Latinos. These groups are also up for grabs.

In a related study, “Record Numbers of Americans Want to Leave the U.S.,” Gallup reveals 16% of the populace want to move out of the country, preferably to Canada. According to the study, the pristine candidate desiring to leave the country are women between the ages of 15-29, and representing the most poor.

I hope they know how to read a map. BTW, Canada is just north of the United States.

Keep the Faith!
