      From the Pew Research Center:

      Exit Poll Analysis

                 2006       Dem   Rep         2010       Dem   Rep

      Dems   38           93       7           35             91      7
      Rep      36              8      91         35             5       94
      Ind       26            57      39         29             37     56

      Dems lost 2% to Repugs in off year, but here's what they said about Conservatives.

      The proportion of self-described conservative voters increased by nearly a third from 2006 -- from 32% to 42% -- and is the highest percentage of conservative voters in the past two decades.
      In other words, conservatives showed up in big numbers, liberals and moderates didn't.
      •  That is still not a reason (0+ / 0-)

        to bash progressives. Conservatives were more motivated to vote, which is not the same thing as progressives being not motivated to vote.
