40% of Americans Are Conservative
Well, well, well, who would have thought? America is more of a conservative nation than one would guess. Yes, Barack Obama was elected president, but not because he ran on an ultra-liberal platform. Remember those tax cuts he promised 95% of Americans. What a joke that was!
Voters did not oppose conservatism; they were just angry and disgusted with Republicans for drifting away from conservative principles and acting like Democrats. In fact, more Americans are beginning to trust Republicans than Democrats.
A few months of an Obamanation, massive spending with no end in sight, was enough to bring them back to reality. Read the results of a Gallup poll in which 21% of Americans classified themselves as liberals, whereas 40% viewed themselves as conservatives, a 3% increase for conservatives from 2008. Notice the same increase of conservatives in 1994 after the introduction of Hillarycare and the push for gays in the military.
These results should concern the Obama Administration. Hope and change isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
