    I suppose, particularly since idiots tend to think that one party is liberal and other is not. But from an ideological standpoint, this poll is utterly worthless.

    Think about approval polls - whether the president is doing a "good job" is entirely subject to a person's definition of a good job. Nevertheless, approval ratings are very good proxies for support for a candidate.
    Because that is defining in terms of how you support a candidate and are likely to vote for them again. That's quite different from an ideological term that is not given any definition. Navy Pride in many cases displayed liberal ideas yet pretends to be a Conservative. What use is asking what people are when they support policies contrary to what they say they believe?

    Furthermore, your point doesn't address the fact that even if the poll is useless alone, there's nothing to indicate that it's not useful in determining trends.
    I suppose so, but the lack of definition in the key term is real questionable.

    And that's kind of the problem. Since the conservative base is on very shaky ground in moderate evolving GOP. See John McCain.

    McCain was a piss poor choice.

    I'm not holding my breath waiting for you guys to come up with somebody who I'd genuinely feel like they are a threat to Obama in 2012. Or do you already have one?

    Old Romney could work.

    your guess is as good as mine...So far the only one I MIGHT vote for is Tim Pawlenty,but that one is iffy at best at the moment.

    I think Romney would also be a poor choice.

    You're officially not allowed to speak to me anymore. Go in a corner. Shame on you for failing to understand the dynamics of a party who has as major driving force evangelical Christians who strongly criticized Romney's weakness on abortion in his own state.
