Pointless polling.

The only thing this poll shows is that Republicans and the right-wing media are much better at consistently and forcefully screaming "liberal" and "far-left" than Democrats are at calling Republicans "radical" and "far-right."

If you poll issue by issue, this doesn't happen. Does anyone seriously believe Ron Paul is closer to the median voter than Barack Obama?

One thing it reminds future Democratic presidents is that, no matter how "centrist" they govern -- they will always be labeled as a "liberal" and "out of the mainstream" uniformly by the right.
