    Conservatives Continue to Outnumber Moderates in 2010

    So the assertion that 1/2 of the country is left wing appears to be without a factual basis.

    Conservatives Remain the Largest Ideological Group in U.S.
    Overall, the nation has grown more polarized over the past decade
    by Lydia Saad

    PRINCETON, NJ -- 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.

    . . . .
    Conservatives Remain the Largest Ideological Group in U.S.

    Looks to me that liberals and liberalism aren't as popular or as large a population as some would want to think.

    What does that have to do with Media Matters lying about Glenn Beck and Fox News?

    I believe that would have been Santorum.

    Given the wide range of positions and perspectives included in the Republican party tent, as it is a big tent, the ideal candidate would seem to be a mix of both social and fiscal conservatism, but not too much of either, nor too extreme of either.
