KEEPING IN MIND THAT THE NUMBERS ARE TEMPORARILY SKEWED...:

Conservatives Maintain Edge as Top Ideological Group (Lydia Saad, 10/26/09, Gallup)

Conservatives continue to outnumber moderates and liberals in the American populace in 2009, confirming a finding that Gallup first noted in June. Forty percent of Americans describe their political views as conservative, 36% as moderate, and 20% as liberal. This marks a shift from 2005 through 2008, when moderates were tied with conservatives as the most prevalent group.

...because, as the pundits tell us, the election last November marked the end of conservatism and made it safe to proclaim yourself a liberal again.
