Are Conservatives Losing the Future?

Janet Hook of the Wall Street Journal reported on a new WSJ/NBC News poll that “finds a marked increase in the share of registered voters identifying themselves as liberals, and an even bigger drop in the share saying they are conservatives.”

In three national polls conducted so far in 2015, Ms. Hook writes, the analysis found that 26 percent of registered voters identified themselves as liberals, up from 23 percent last year.  At the same time, the share of voters identifying as conservatives dropped to 33 percent from 37 percent in 2014.

    Just because we may be in the “minority” doesn’t mean that we are wrong.

    We just have to hit rock bottom. There’s a generation out there that only know good times. Imagine the world with interest rates back to the levels of the 80’s.

      Actually there are two generations past the boomers now.
      And both of those generations have been through the Marxist indoctrination scheme know as public schooling.
      Rock bottom is going to be very messy.

    Liberals don’t turn out to vote though. They think that simply declaring what they are and then tweeting about it is enough.

      Polls have a selection bias.
      Liberals identify.
      Conservatives say leave me the fuck alone, I’m eating dinner.

      They have no need to vote, since they manage to get what they want through the back door. I refer to HRCs, Silly Court of Canada and Trudeau’s charter.

    There are no “Conservatives”. What passes for modern “Conservatism” is a GOP that represents FDR’s radical New Deal policies on steroids.

    • Clausewitz

      No, there are no conservatives, but we do have a Conservative party. Two entirely different things.

  • Jay Currie

    I wonder what “conservatives” believe which makes them conservative. This sort of study is more annoying than enlightening.

    • Frau Katze

      I was thinking the same thing. One might be liberal on some issues and “conservative” on others. You need better defined questions.

        My jihad means
        I mean, my conservatism means
        The teachers get my kids right on reading writing and arithmetic.
        The government gets out of my wallet.
        Jaywalking is not a crime.
        And government regulation is no substitute for common sense and morality.

    For me, they all the same. Liberals support gay “marriage” and so are conservatives.
    Liberals support radical Islamic jihadists worldwide and so are conservatives in their support of Islamic jihadists that fought with Qaddafi and now with Assad. Liberals want to bring “LGBTQ” activism into Russia and to the rest of the world under the guise of democracy and human rights and so are the conservatives. They are all the same and they may all go to hell!

    It’s suicidal. The purpose of the left is to prevent the right from going too far right. It’s a bit like the British House of Lords moderating the House of Commons. The Left may be in power with a Commons majority for a while, but the Conservatives are the natural party of government.
    At least here we rebuffed the Lefties last month.

    There seems to be a mistake.
    The percentage of liberal voters in “normally adjusted” polling should never fall below 100%.

    The good news is that we have the guns… and the way progressives are running things there will be a world-wide civil war in all western nations….

    After the commie brainwashing that has been happening in schools and in the media for the last 50 years what do you expect?
