In a February 2011 survey, Gallup found that there are more conservatives than liberals in every state of the union — even in supposed bastions of liberalism like Massachusetts, New York and California (TheAtlantic.com, 29 March 2011).
And for the first time on record, at least one state polls as being more than 50% conservative: Mississippi.
Analysts at The Atlantic found that states with the highest rate of religiosity, the lowest average income and education level, and the weakest creative class also were the most conservative.
The engines of the economy — large, urban, liberal-leaning cities that rely on education and creativity — are increasingly at odds with the political agenda of the very rich and the very poor.
Note Iconoculture’s pathetic What’s the Matter with Kansas “analysis” at the end — further proof of sheer, stubborn liberal cluelessness.
