Conservative Majority?

According to a recent Gallup poll, conservatives are the single largest ideological group in these United States. Conservatives are 40% of the population, with moderates at 35% and liberals at 21%.

There are a few interesting points to this poll. First - 18-29 year olds are just as likely to call themselves conservative as liberal (30% vs 31%). Also, both males and females are more likely to call themselves conservative than liberal.

This actually confirms that which Republicans like Mike Pence and Pat Toomey have been saying all along - if Republicans acted more conservative, especially fiscally, they would do better. Let's see if they learn from this.
