Numbers Democrats Don’t Want You To See

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/20

There are a lot of numbers Democrats don’t want you to see, and many of those numbers are poll numbers on various Democrat pet issues. Because those numbers show the Democrats are decidedly in the minority. But the Democrats don’t want the people to be aware of the fact they are actually in the majority and not, after all, “extremists” or “far-right” or any other personal attack the Democrats use from day to day to villify most of America.

Let’s start with the fiscal and social values of the population. According to multiple Rasmussen polls spanning multiple years, the population is overwhelmingly more conservative and overwhelmingly more moderate on fiscal issues than liberal, despite the outright liberal position held by the Democrat Congressmen. These same Rasmussen polls show a three-way split in the 30s on social issues, with the Conservative position being the position of plurality. Again, despite the Democrat politicians’ nearly lock-step Liberalism regarding social issues.

Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Likely U.S. Voters remain conservative on both fiscal and social issues, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Just 10% say they are fiscal and social liberals. Sixty-one percent (61%) are some other combination. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

These findings are consistent with surveys back to November 2007, as is the continuing pattern that voters tend to be more fiscally conservative than socially conservative.

Forty-four percent (44%) describe themselves as conservative on fiscal issues such as taxes, government spending and business regulation. Forty percent (40%) say they’re moderate when it comes to fiscal issues, while only 11% claim to be fiscal liberals.

But just 35% say they’re conservative when it comes to issues like abortion, public prayer and church-state topics. Thirty percent (30%) are moderate in this area, and 31% are social liberals.

It is very clear that, over a span of several years, the US population is far more Conservative than the leaders of the Democrat Party. This is why the Democrats don’t want people to know they’re not alone and that the population does not actually support the Democrat position on much of anything. Let’s just repeat that information the Democrats don’t want you to know. 44 percent of the US population is fiscally conservative, 40 percent of the US population is fiscally moderate, while a miniscule 11 percent is fiscally liberal. And that extreme minority fiscally liberal position is precisely where the Democrat elites live. The Republican elites aren’t much better, living in the fiscally moderate position, leaving the plurality of the people essentially without representation. This is why the likes of Karl Rove and Charles Krauthammer and the so-called “conservatives” in publications like the New York Times need to derisively dismiss actual Conservatives. They can’t let the word get out, either.

On to the next issue: Illegal immigration. And do get the facts straight, it’s not about immigration; it’s about illegal immigration. 65 percent of We the People want border control dealt with first and foremost while 59 percent of the population believes the US Government’s policy favors illegal immigration in direct contradiction with the wishes of We the People.
