Liberals Lose Three States, Now Only Outnumber Conservatives in Six States, not Nine


With all this talk of the country going socialist, it is interesting to note that liberals have lost one third of the states they used to lead in. Liberals used to outnumber conservatives in nine states, but that number has fallen to six.

According to the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard, liberals now only dominate in six states:

The number of states where liberals outnumber conservatives has dropped more than 30 percent, with just six now in that category: Massachusetts, Hawaii, Vermont, Washington, New York, and New Hampshire.

According to the latest Gallup survey, in every other state but California, where conservatives and liberals split 29 percent to 29 percent, conservatives lead.

You’ll notice that Illinois is surrounded by a sea of red and gray states. Indeed, Illinois is the last hold out for the far left in the Midwest.

It used to be that Michigan and Wisconsin were big time liberal states. But that has been changing over the last decade, especially as the liberal bastions began to fall into financial ruin due to liberal policies thus giving Republicans a few inroads into previously Democrat strongholds.

Right now Illinois is one of the worst, failed states in the country. Its finances are in utter ruins and getting worse by the day. But Chicago rules the state and the Windy City is still a fortress of far left, lunatic ideas. Until Chicago falls, Illinois will remain a deep blue state.

In its report, Gallup adds, “The residents of most U.S. states are more likely to identify as conservative than as liberal in their political ideology. In 25 states, the conservative advantage is significantly greater than the national average, including 19 ‘highly conservative’ states in which conservatives outnumber liberals by at least 20 percentage points.”

This is by no means a permanent situation, granted. Republicans have a long way to go to really take hold. After all, a HUGE number of our total population lives in those blue states. So, numbers-wise, the left still has an edge.
