Gallop: 41% Now Describe Their Political Views as Conservative

Does Joe Biden think 41% of Americans are Terrorists? 41% now consider their political views to be conservative. Only 21% now consider themselves to be liberals.

Americans' political ideology at the midyear point of 2011 looks similar to 2009 and 2010, with 41% self-identifying as conservative, 36% as moderate, and 21% as liberal.

If this pattern continues, 2011 will be the third straight year that conservatives significantly outnumber moderates -- the next largest ideological bloc. Liberalism has been holding steady for the past six years, averaging either 21% or 22%, although notably higher than the 17% average seen in Gallup polling during the early to middle '90s.

If the left did not own the schools or the MSM, the left would never win elections.
