I’ve mentioned the GWU Battleground Poll in the past and was recently wondering when the last time it was referenced here at RVO. Turns out that was more than three years ago! Time flies, but the most recent poll was done in Dec. 2012.
Here is the result for question D3. In a political and government view, conservatives are still the majority.
Those who define themselves as conservative when it comes to politics and government is still at 59 percent. Other than an interesting four point bump in Dec. 2009, the Very Conservative plus Somewhat Conservative numbers have remained just under 60 percent for quite some time. Here is a graphic I used back in 2009 to reference previous Battleground polls.
Remember, this poll is of registered voters who are at least somewhat likely to vote in the Nov. 2014 election. Other information from the poll. Again, this results are from Dec. 2012.
- 59 percent of respondents say were on the wrong track in this country.
- 44 percent say they are at least leaning Democratic for the 2014 Congressional election. 42 percent are at least leaning Republican.
The video review is below … and it’s now owned by Politico … but here is some additional background about the poll.
The POLITICO – George Washington University Battleground Poll is a national recognized, bipartisan political opinion survey focused on election politics in the United States. The poll is conducted by Republican pollster Ed Goeas of The Tarrance Group and Democratic pollster Celinda Lake of Lake Research Partners.
