Sure as hell does, people ignore liberalism essentially attacks majority demographics in the name of liberalism and equality, so for must of us it does lower self esteem by the definition of majority.

If you are minority in anyway liberalism almost states you are superior, or that you have rights majority do not. That is to change the status who and dictate political correctness.

I believe it does, but so do most of our ideologies, hence, the self-serving bias. As humans we look for things that can make us feel better about who we are. Whether that be liberalism, athletic ability, or musical aptitude, we usually see these things as grounds for why we are "special." A conservative likely leverages her political ideals in order to boost her self esteem as well, maybe with such phrases as "I am self-sufficient," or "I'm a traditionalist."

Actually there is better evidence that conservatism is rooted in having a larger amygdala thus adrenaline/fear response.

Could be. Many of them have some psychological disorder "from their childhood". Daddy didn't hug me enough. A religious person did me wrong. Etc etc. It's always something.
