Fascinating poll numbers from Rasmussen Reports: Every political label, including “moderate,” has lost popularity since November. “Liberal” comes in last, with only a 15 percent positive/41 percent negative rating, worse than the 19/36 rating it had in November at the peak of Obamamania. Another way of describing it would be that “liberal” has a net rating of minus-26 percent now, versus minus-17 in November.
Here are the net ratings for other labels included in the survey, with November results in parentheses:
Conservative: plus-3 percent (down from plus-15 percent)
Progressive: plus-5 percent (down from plus-24 percent)
Moderate: plus-23 percent (down from plus-32 percent)
The one label that’s holding steady? “Like Ronald Reagan,” which is at plus-16 today…more or less the same as its plus-17 percent back in November. Now, if there were only a politician out there who deserved that description…
