    ...25+ years of a constant barrage of the hate-media demonizing the word "liberal". It's little wonder it comes in last in the self-labeling department. The sad thing is, I know a whole bunch of so-called "moderates" really ARE liberals if they could just get over the internalization that it is somehow bad. It pisses me off to no end. I've met alot of people who identify as "moderates" who really are liberals but somehow can't admit that they are. Plus, poll after poll shows Americans are more to the left on many issues when questions are asked as policy, not political ideological labels.

    This won't stop Michael Medved, Michelle Malkin, Sean Hannity, et al from crowing about these results ad nauseum once again, however.
