Not true, 35% of the country claims to be Conservative, 41% Moderate and 24% off of their rocker - Romney didn’t articulate fiscal conservatism very well.
Romney had moments, but he's not a consistently good salesman for party ideology or one who could sell to any crowd. He could have done it, but if he has them, those skills are too rusty to get it done.
Once people have been sold on a lie, unless the lie is countered, candidates don't win. We've been conned by one of the better actors with the media in a strong supporting role.

Cher probably thinks she is a conservative. Nancy Pelosi truely believes she is a moderate... the mentally deficient over at DUmmy land, however, proudly consider themselves part of the last category.
Self-proclaimed conservatives are usually no such thing. I think Reagan, the greatest conservative of them all, was just a moderate.
Any link to this stat - appears to be reasonable.
Claiming to be conservative is not the same thing as actually being conservative. Some people think tightening up the rules on qualifying for an “EBT” card is conservative. A REAL conservative thinks there should not be and never should have been such a thing. Some people think asking for ID before allowing someone to vote is conservative. A REAL conservative would disqualify anyone who cannot demonstrate the ability to read, write and understand the constitution in ENGLISH or who is not a tax paying property owner. Just my personal opinion of course but it was once the mainstream opinion in this country and I think it was for good reason. The results of changing our thinking are obvious and not good.
