Silent Plurality??

by

“Conservatives” Are Single-Largest Ideological Group. I saw this on Drudge and had to do a double take.  Look at these numbers carefully, or even casually, and it makes the current situation even harder to understand.  These are the results of self identification of the poll subjects on the political spectrum.

By these numbers, liberalism should be considered a slightly out of touch fringe movement with about 20% total identification of liberal or very liberal.  Conservative and very conservative constitute about 40% of the people.

So why is it that conservatives are on the defensive and the only ideas being discussed in public are those of the hard left?  Could it have anything to do with the fact that the national press is about 90% liberal and the academy not much less?
