According to a recent Gallup poll, 40 percent of Americans describe themselves as conservative, while only 21 percent call themselves liberal. (Another 35 percent are self-identified moderates.)
New research provides evidence that, when under time pressure or otherwise cognitively impaired, people are more likely to express conservative views.
In other words if you are Governor of a small State and your only printed news source is People Magazine then you may be a conservative.
If one doesn’t have the time or energy to give a matter sufficient thought, one tends to accept the conservative argument.
