    Seems the hard-core leftists are the ones out of touch.

    -------------------------------------

    Gallup's reports the data on a state-by-state basis, and in all of the Gallup Poll surveys in the last decade, only a tiny handful of states show more respondents as liberal than conservative.

    Nothing, really, has changed. The Gallup Poll survey conducted at the end of 2015 reports that 47 of the 50 states have more conservatives than liberals, and only three states – Vermont, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts – have more respondents calling themselves liberal than conservative. In two of those three states, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, the liberal advantage is tiny.

    This is consistent with all past Gallup Poll surveys on this topic. The number of states in which conservatives outnumber liberals has been as low as 47 states and as high as 50 states. This ought to be a very big story, but Gallup, like nearly every other polling organization, tilts left ideologically. As I have noted in prior articles on this subject, the titles Gallup gives to its stories tell it all.

    I wish that we could get the democrats kicked out of local office in most of our older northern US cities. Especially Detroit, Flint, and Baltimore. Those three cities were run into the sewer by the donkey dork democrats with their failed urban policies.

    The vast majority of Gallup surveys intended to represent the national population are based on interviews conducted by landline and cell telephones. This method builds off of the central assumption that most Americans still either live in a residence with a telephone or own a personal cell phone. So, reaching people on their telephones is the starting place for current national surveys.

    Good point. Would the libbies try to make the same case if the poll said most of us wanted to be f---ing socialists, or would they say how rock solid Gallup is?

    Fair point. But to quote from my favourite sage, Judge Judy, "If it doesn't make sense, it's usually not true".

    The take-away from the different Gallup polls is logical. People consider themselves conservative or liberal based on several issues, economic and social as the major categories.

    What both polls together are saying is that while more people label themselves conservative, a major group are people who are conservative on economic issues but moderate or liberal on social issues. That would describe many independents and moderate Republicans.

    Notice that there is no mention of California, New York, or Hawaii for that matter.

    A little fun with cross-posting: This thread seems to imply that we are expected to believe that the result of the Gallup poll is that a majority of people in 47 states believe this:

    When are older northern US cities going to become more conservative by voting out the donkey dork democrats in city hallicon_question.gif It is time for moderate republicans and independents to take over northern urban governance in cities like Chicago, Detroit, Flint, Buffalo, Newark, Baltimore, etc.

    I still have not been able to find that Gallop poll they are talking about, which makes me question whether the story is accurate.

    However, I did find this:
