It doesn't really add up, there's also no access to the methodology (sample size, questions asked, when & how).

Gallup is a highly trusted and creditable poll. So of course liberals don't agree with the results.

Wow Zetsubou's profile says conservative. Wasn't expecting that.

I saw that the other day...odd. I agree with that though.

But one poll isnt enough for a full 100% proof, it is a good start, better than what the lib dogs have, but we need a few more polls before people will be convinced. FUnny, obama=most liberal president ever\socialist, yet he is president when 40% of america is conservative. Liberals will use that too.

LOL I think it is those who claim to be conservative, and that is not really conservative. EG, GWB was not a conservative, he is a dispensationalist, far from conservative.
True Conservatives have:
an identifiable philosophy which guides their thinking
A set of objective principles
Know FDR was a lousy president

Absent ANY of these three one is just a wannabe conservative, probably lacking the education and/or intelligence to grasp true conservatism as outlined by WFB and Chambers.

Conservatism is by definition traditionalism. There are many types of Conservatives. There are Liberal-Conservatives (Either Social Liberal-Conservative or Classic Liberal-Conservative), there are Progressive-Conservatives (Middle Way politics), there is Traditional Conservatives, and there are conservative-socialists (such as christian-socialists, or Islamic-socialists)

Bull...You confuse conservative with orthodox and fundamentalist. The poll was not about the classical definition of conservative according to English monarchies, but about US conservatism. The nuances you claim are no more a part of conservatism in the US currently than is thought. See Fox News FYI there is no real difference between Islam and Christian fundamentalists, though they often try to make a distinction.

Interesting, that trend is largely cohort dependent.

"The pattern is strikingly different on the basis of age, and this could have important political implications in the years ahead. Whereas middle-aged and older Americans lean conservative (vs. liberal) in their politics by at least 2 to 1, adults aged 18 to 29 are just as likely to say their political views are liberal (31%) as to say they are conservative (30%)."

Young Liberals grow up to be conservative.
