To quote the Pew research:
"Americans' overall ideological views were about the same in 2020 as in 2019, with 36%, on average, identifying as conservative, 35% as moderate and 25% as liberal."


Not really relevant. I could "identify" as a black person. Doesn't mean I am. (I'm not.)

What matters are the positions people actually hold, which tend to be fairly moderate/liberal based on all the issue surveys I've seen (like the one quoted by the other poster). That people then vote for the party that does NOT support those policy objectives lends some credence to the other poster's point.
