    I don't think so.  It's probably more that some people polled are mislabeling themselves as conservative.   Unlike "liberal," that word has not been effectively demonized, so people who are not politically engaged just attach the label to themselves without much thought.

    I wish we could just start with fresh labels, say X, Y, & Z.  With no negative baggage attached, I think America would side fairly strongly with many elements of socialism.  The media and pundits would be shocked.  SHOCKED I tell you.
