According to the results of a new Gallup poll, Sean Hannity will have something to smile about tonight:

“Conservatives” Are Single-Largest Ideological Group

Percentage of “liberals” higher this decade than in early ’90s

by Lydia Saad

PRINCETON, NJ Thus far in 2009, 40% of Americans interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys describe their political views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal. This represents a slight increase for conservatism in the U.S. since 2008, returning it to a level last seen in 2004. The 21% calling themselves liberal is in line with findings throughout this decade, but is up from the 1990s.

    I just hope that the trend continues long enough for the conservative candidates to win some seats in 2010 and 2012. I know that here in CT people are already forgetting about the disaster that is Chris Dodd. Thanks to some advertising already hitting the airwaves for the 2010 election and a media that will give him as much positive press as they can get away with his poll numbers have already started to rise. He is still behind the most likely Republican candidate, and still finds himself in a primary runoff with another Democrat for the first time since, I believe, 1980, but the most recent poll numbers show him gaining ground. The media, of course reports about his new ads and increasing numbers without ever mentioning why the numbers were down in the first place. Unfortunately the people in this state seem to be just looking for some reason to forget his transgressions so that they can vote for him again. It would not shock me if he won. It would, however really piss me off. I just might be looking for another state to live in.

    In other words, Obama won not because of ideology but because of Bush, a lousy economy, big government conservatism and the Iraq War.

    Now that the voters realize that they cut off their nose to spite their face, expect (and pray for) Democrat thugs to be ousted in 2012.

  3. If GW had actually been a conservative, the Republicans would likely still be in power. The problem is a DC establishment on both sides of the aisle addicted to power and spending the people’s money in order to buy power.
