Cornell political scientist Peter Enns says conservatives are beginning to break through across the country.

I see a lot of RED on that map of the USA.

Americans are sick of the Full Fledged Embrace of the Welfare State.

Well, there goes the November 2014 Election !  It looks like Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will take over in the U.S. Senate.

The map can be seen at the link:

That's really nothing new.  Compared to other nations, the United States always polls as a Center-Right/Right-Leaning nation.

The new Esquire poll that just came out is kind of interesting and dove tails nicely with this study and points more to the rise of a centrist party that leans conservative on things like fiscal policy, immigration, and welfare reform, but trends more liberal on social issues.

Here's the article:  http://www.esquire.com/blogs/politics/new-american-center-1113?src=soc_fcbks

I don't know about you, but to me that sounds a lot like a libertarian.

Libertarian woooooooo  :tsu:

There was actually one study taken on the GOP that's says now 25% identify themselves as libertarian or libertarian leaning. 45% percent viewed the term favorably and 37% just hasn't heard enough about it to make a opinion. These are all huge increases

So hopefully raftman is right and we are going more libertarian then we are conservative.

That map looks really - RED - to me !

The justification makes sense.  The American people are sick of the full fledged embrace of the welfare state.

I predict Nancy Pelosi will just resign if the November 2014 Election is a disaster for the dems. :yes:

While im on the topic of libertarians I just want to point out that Libertarian attract a lot of formally left wing people too(specially since Obama has become president). The media trys to make libertarian look like extreme right wing but its really not. Its not right or left. Democrats become libertarians too!! lol

Okay done with my public service announcement.

Is Glenn Beck a libertarian?

It looks a like a conservative will win the next Presidential Election in 2016.

President Ted Cruz ?

He will need a great VP.

ehhh he claims to be. Just like biIl Maher also says he's a libertarian.

Glen beck recently turned libertarian by changing some of his views  like now he has support for legal marijuana, gay marriage, and is a non interventionist. He is now against the Patriot Act and  he has other libertarian views.

But he used to be a hardcore republican. And I mean HARDCORE

So idk if his new libertarian ways are legit or if he is just a opportunist keeping up with the modern trends.

Well, according to the Cornell Study : It's Over.

The number of conservatives is growing in All 50 States !

I think they will draft President Ted Cruz.  His VP will probably be Sarah Palin.

Does that mean Libertarian is center-top?  Or would they be center-bottom?

Libertarian = Jon Stossel

Jon oddly disagrees with Bill O'Reilly often.

Jon is right on target with the public school system. :tu:

I'd rather see Bigfoot as president. Mothman can be his VP.

I'm just saying.

And since it has gotten more mainstream a lot of people are now claiming to either be Left leaning libertarian or right leaning libertarian. Which some libertarians get mad about but im fine with it. As long as more people adopt libertarian views im happy, I don't expect everyone instantly adopt all libertarian views over night.
