Conservative blog readers say country is moving in wrong direction
In a recent survey, conservative blog readers were 2.8x as likely to say the country is moving in the wrong direction than their liberal counterparts.
On linchpin issues of illegal immigration and increased government spending, conservatives are more likely to be “very concerned” than liberal blog readers.
As the Obama administration tries to take ownership of the term “Obamacare,” 20% of conservative respondents say they are “not at all concerned” about healthcare, compared to 5% of liberals. In response to the same question, 80% of liberals said they were “very concerned” about healthcare, compared to 55% of conservatives.
