No “Permanent Realignment,” Conservatism Still No. 1

MSM perception making.

Remember that one?

It seems, gentle readers, that news of your demise has been greatly exaggerated.


More Americans identified themselves as conservatives in 2009 than any other ideological group — an uptick largely due to more independents shifting right, according to a new Gallup report.

Forty percent of Americans said they were conservative, compared with 36 percent who said they were moderates and 21 percent who professed to be liberals.

Political independents viewing themselves as conservative boosted the overall ranks of conservatives, who now clearly outnumber moderates in Gallup’s annual averages for the first time since 2004.

The report also said the percentage of Americans calling themselves either conservative or liberal has grown over the last decade, while the percentage of moderates has declined.

What’s striking about the report is that since 1992, there have been only two other years — 2003 and 2004 — in which the average percentage of conservatives across the nation outnumbered moderates.

And if there’s any lingering doubt amongst you, the MSM propaganda mongers out there, this should put it to rest.
