That study was pretty pointless. I think people at either extreme are pretty nuts, but I think that conservatives tend to define anyone to the left of their position as extreme anyway. Obama is a centrist by any objective measure, yet conservatives try to paint him as a some kind of radical socialist extremist. It's utterly ridiculous, but that certainly doesn't seem to bother them.

Don't paint us all with the same brush. The vast majority of Conservatives I've met are quite moderate and do not do what you claim there. I am fairly Conservative and I wouldn't either. I have nothing but indifference for many extreme Conservative points and I think religion is an utter waste of time and money. That said, the left has its own closet full of villains and extremists just as we do. Some ideas are just inherently liberal or rooted in socialism, I'm not saying that is a Bad Thing either. I really do want a national health care system, I just don't like the way Obama has attacked the problem, not that Romney necessarily has a great solution either.

Just like Democrats aren't defined by their extreme left, don't define Conservatives by the extreme right.
