The Moderate "Majority"

Based on most recent polling from Gallup, the idealogical makeup of Americans has been and continues to be Conservativism. Based on their results as self-reported by respondents, our national makeup is:

  1. Conservative - 40%
  2. Moderate - 35%
  3. Liberal - 21%

One informative realization is that Americans are becoming more polarized as both ends of the political spectrum have experienced growth taking gains from the ranks of Moderates (who have been shrinking since the mid-2000s.

Recognizing that Conservatives makeup the largest population and Moderates / Independents more statistically lean Conservative, the outlook for Liberals is growing ever dimmer!
