The Power of One

I continue to wrestle with the Gallup Poll report[i] regarding the most liberal and the most conservative states in the Union. The poll stated that after the 2012 presidential election, the nation was 38% conservative as opposed to 23% liberal with the balance attributed mostly to moderates. The breakdown in New Jersey, notorious for being “blue” and #9 on Gallup’s 10 most liberal states list, is more than interesting.
