Hopefully, Leonard Pitts won’t receive any death threats for his column in today’s Eagle (see blog item below). It raises an issue similar to that of the blog itemRandy did last week on how liberals are calling themselves "progressives" because it has less baggage. Pitts cites a report released this month, aptly called "The Progressive Majority: Why a Conservative America Is a Myth," that argues that opinion polls show that most Americans lean liberal. For example, 62 percent oppose overturning Roe, 61 percent support stem cell research and 60 percent want more gun control. "By what trick, con job or bamboozlement," Pitts wondered, "does a nation that supports gun control, abortion rights and stem cell research believe itself to be conservative?"
