Conservatives 40%, Liberals 21%

So why are liberal policies winning the day? I'll answer that in a moment.
Political ideology in the U.S. held steady in 2011, with 40% of Americans continuing to describe their views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal. This marks the third straight year that conservatives have outnumbered moderates, after more than a decade in which moderates mainly tied or outnumbered conservatives.
Liberal policies are winning the day because the policymakers are ignoring the plurality of voters who are conservative and are trying to curry favor with moderates and liberals. Those policymakers need to be voted out.

Most polls these days skew their results. If a poll finds that 40% of the respondents identify with the Republican party while 21% identify with the Democrat party, the pollsters 'correct' for the obvious error in their sample because everybody at the Washington Post and New York Times just KNOWS for a fact that for every Republican in America there are two Democrats.

That's how Obama's approval numbers stay above 40% -yet when the mid-term elections rolled around, even with the dead and illegal aliens voting Dem, and Dems voting on behalf of those registered but who haven't voted in the last decade, they still got shellacked.

The problem is that the Republican establishment believes 'corrected' polls and align their policies accordingly, hence $16 trillion in debt and no resistance in sight.
