Conservative, Liberal or?

May 31, 2009

Much discussion has focused on are you a Democrat or a Republican? A good idea is to ficus on what people believe in. I have to wonder if John Kennedy could fit in to the Democratic Party today-probably not. I also am concerned with the obvious core values of people leaning to the GOP the Republican party has done such a poor job of communicating any sort of message.

A good education, access to health care and a safe retirement are worthwhile goals. How does the GOP look to move to those goals. We know the democrat answer, much more government, increased spending/debt and higher taxes.

In August of 2008 the Battleground Poll found that 60 percent of Americans identify themselves as conservative and only 36 percent as liberal.

In August 2008, Americans answered that question this way:  (1) 20% of Americans considered themselves to be very conservative; (2) 40% of Americans considered themselves to be somewhat conservative; (3) 2% of Americans considered themselves to be moderate; (4) 27% of Americans considered themselves to be somewhat liberal; (5) 9% of Americans considered themselves to be very liberal; and (6) 3% of Americans did not know or refused to answer.

Sixty percent of Americans considered themselves conservative.
Now, how can the GOP offer a message to America, stay tuned.

    Love the post – keep up the great blogging!

    I saw a poll not too long ago that actually showed the RNC ahead in polling as far as identification for the first time in like 3 decades.

    I think BO is doing all the selling for us – and his ad men Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are helping deliver the message that will drive people back to the right.

    I just hope there is someone there like Huckabee/Romney/Graham/Santorum who will be ready with a real conservative message and not some half assed big tent wishy washy nonsense. It doesn’t compute, just like your poll shows.

    People want a leader, not a poll watcher.

    If you get a chance -we just reviewed BO’s first 4.5 months – come on by and take a gander – love any feedback!
