Gallup: More Mainers call themselves
conservative than liberal or moderate

Bangor Daily News [ME], by Robert Long

Original Article

Augusta, Maine — Republicans who lost elections in November will be skeptical, but far more Mainers identified themselves as politically conservative than liberal in 2012, according to a Gallup analysis released Friday. The highest number of Mainers that Gallup polled during 2012 — 36.3 percent — identified themselves as conservative, while 35.4 percent labeled themselves politically moderate. Only one in every four Mainers surveyed by Gallup in 2012 identified themselves as politically liberal. Despite that ideological breakdown, Maine voters last year swept Democrats

It all depends on the meaning of "conservative."

These Maine dunces think that having the government take care of you from cradle to grave is a conservative position.

Don´t even try to make sense out of people who are that dumb.

Do the citizens of Maine have any idea at all what the meaning of the word "conservative" is? They seem to have "conservative" confused with "socialism".

In all the statistics cited in the article, very few states have even 30% liberals. So how do Democrats win? A lot of liberals are ashamed to self-identify as one.

The fact that a plurality of Americans, let alone Mainers, consider themselves conservative and the fact that Emperor NerØbama is arguably the worst POTUS in history and the fact that the economy remains in the tank despite fudged government "statistics" leads only to the conclusion that the GOP is totally ineffective and needs to be replaced.

I read the article in the Blaze and came to the conclusion that Gallup has been snookered badly.

Remember this the nest time someone touts a poll "proving" that the U.S. is a center-right or right country. The word "conservative" has become meaningless to many people.

Describe yourself as a "classical liberal." That´s pretty much what a conservative is, certainly one who believes in individual liberty.

Even if true, 36% isn´t enough to win an election for dogcatcher. The so-called ´moderates´ are the folks who simply agree with the prevailing political atmosphere which, in Maine, is left of center.

They may consider themselves conservative, but their voting belies that. Especially since their voting isn´t skewed by inflated minority votes (very few minorities in Maine).

Speaker John Boehner´s primary challenger is going there. In a provocative new video from GOP candidate J.D. Winteregg, an announcer asks if Boehner suffer from "electile dysfunction"? "Sometimes, when a politician has been in D.C. too long, it goes to his head," the announcer says as clips flash on-screen of John Boehner laughing with President Obama, John Boehner on the golf course with Obama, and John Boehner smiling while giving Obama a glowing "thumbs up" at the State of the Union address. The ad - titled "When the Moment is Right" - is a spoof of Cialis commercials which air during 60 Minutes

Paul and Bush Duke It Out
on Immigration

Presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Jeb Bush got in a slight scuffle over immigration yesterday. Bush called illegal immigration “an act of love” committed by people wanting to support their families, adding that most of them are here illegally because they can’t get in legally. This ignited some Republican rage and Rand Paul got his chance to respond: “You know, I think he might have been more artful, maybe, in the way he presented this,” said Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said on ABC’s This Week. “But I don’t want to say, ‘oh, he’s terrible for saying this.’ If it were

Study finds more immigrants equals more

Republicans are famously divided on immigration reform, but Democrats pretty much unanimously support it. There´s a reason for that. In stark, partisan political terms, continuing the high level of immigration of recent decades, and certainly increasing immigration as envisioned by many reformers, will result in more Democrats winning more elections in coming years

GOP Needs to Pledge to Clean
Up Washington´s Sleazy Culture

There is a culture of sleaze in Washington that´s worse than ever. Too-big, all-powerful government not only cripples the freedoms of the regular people who have to live under it, it also creates a whole shadow infrastructure dedicated to working it to the advantage of the elite and the connected. Three recent stories illustrate the point: Matt Continetti´s piece about the divorce of lobbyists Tony and Heather Podesta shows how connected insiders can make out like bandits in Obama´s Washington. The Podestas have offered their vast and wealthy clients little in the way of objective value. Rather, they´ve gotten rich just

By now most people are familiar with the potentially deadly situation emerging at the Bundy ranch in Nevada. Right now, the back-story is not nearly as important as the immediate necessity to de-escalate this life-and liberty threatening situation, although it does play an important role and must be addressed. The fact that this situation could have been pulled from the script of the 1974 movie Chinatown or any of the Godfather movies is well known and must be exposed, but not before immediate action is taken to assure the preservation of life and liberty. The current critical nature of the crisis cannot

   

 



 
Nevada officials blast feds over
treatment of cattle rancher

Two of Nevada’s top elected leaders are riding to the rescue of a rancher whose decades-long range war with the federal government has reached a boiling point in recent days. The federal Bureau of Land Management has surrounded the Clark County ranch of Cliven Bundy with armed officers, helicopters and four-wheel drive vehicles. Last week, they began seizing cattle found grazing on adjacent federal lands in violation of a law meant to protect an endangered desert tortoise. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
