Según el último estudio de Rasmussen Reports, cada vez mayor número de votantes ven a Barack Obama como un candidato liberal. Por primera vez en lo que llevamos de campaña, hay más gente que considera liberal a Obama que a Clinton. Desde hace veinte años, los candidatos presidenciales del Partido Demócrata han intentado huir de la etiqueta "liberal". More Voters Now See Obama As Liberal than Clinton; 51% See McCain As Moderate
(...) Hillary Clinton, long regarded as politically liberal by more voters than any other presidential candidate, must for now cede that status to Barack Obama. The most recent Rasmussen Reports survey indicates that 53% of all likely voters see Clinton as liberal but 55% see Obama that way.
The new numbers represent a trivial fluctuation for Clinton but a moderate uptick for Obama. In December, just before the primaries began, 54% perceived Clinton as liberal and 47% perceived Obama as liberal. In twelve previous Rasmussen Reports surveys, the share of the electorate seeing Clinton as liberal slipped below 50% only once.
Clinton is currently seen as moderate by 30% of all voters, as conservative by 9%; Obama is seen as moderate by 26%, conservative by 11%.
A plurality of Democrats sees Clinton as moderate (47%) rather than liberal (33%). The reverse tendency obtains for Obama: 29% of Democrats see him as moderate, 47% as liberal. Unaffiliated voters and especially Republicans tend to see both Democrats as liberal. (...)
