The latest Gallup survey of US political ideologies is out, and anybody who wants to understand why Democrats kept ceding ground during the debt battle should take a look at these numbers.41 percent of American adults call themselves conservative, 21 percent call themselves liberals. 36 percent call themselves moderate; the biggest change in American political ideology in the last 20 years has been a gradual growth in the conservative bloc at the expense of moderates. In 1992 moderates outnumbered conservatives; since the middle of 2008 conservatives have enjoyed an edge.This is a conservative country with a moderate streak. Push it too far to the left, and the voters push back.
