What Is the most popular political ideology in the United States?

Based upon all of the talking heads on TV and the media coverage in general, it is liberal right? Well no, not really. Fine, then obviously most people must consider themselves moderate. Um, strike two. According to a recent Gallup poll, it is conservative:

In fact, conservative or moderate have been by far the predominant political ideologues in America over the past decade. Liberal has remained more or less constant at or below only 20%. Which is HALF of the people who define themselves as conservative. It is also telling to me that, as Obama, Pelosi and Reid have cranked up the divisive political rhetoric over the past three years, MORE people have become conservative--and almost all of those who shifted came from the middle. So go ahead, Obama, start a class war. You'll lose.
