The Gallup polls I linked show that conservatism is rising through ALL ideological groups.

The big question is "What is a moderate?"

From this board (and a lifetime of experience with the issue), a moderate is most likely someone who discribes themselves as fiscally conservative but socially liberal.

I applaud your Ticker, and I agree with almost all of it. All I am saying is that if you are steadfastly going to abandon your flank, expect the attack to come there.

2010 is going to be a strange animal. If there is ever a time you could win by charging up the middle and leaving your flanks unguarded, it is 2010. I still say that is risky.

We will know in November when the secular moderates are blaming cultual conservatives for every failure and dismissing all their success.
