I looked at the tables in the link. The last table measures conservative advantage. In all but 2 states as well as DC, conservatives hold an advantage. So, I wonder why Obama won in 2008 and in 2012. My opinion is conservatives are too complacent and not politically active enough. Furthermore, those who become politically active are way too critical of the Republican Party. They divide up the conservative votes with their third party. Also, the are too overzealous when they accuse good Republicans of being "establishment", "RINO", or "not conservative enough". They would rather stay home allowing Obama to win than vote for somebody wrongly judged as not a "true conservative" Conservatives are their own worst enemy.

A little over half of Alabama residents identify as conservatives. Not far behind, tied for second most conservative, are Wyoming and North Dakota with 48.6 percent.

At the other end of the scale is Washington, DC, with more than 40 percent of their residents identifying as liberals. Another 10 percentage points behind DC was the runner up, Massachusetts and Oregon not far behind the bay state.

And Alaska reported having...
