How conservative do upvotes (and downvotes) for posts tend to swing on Politics.SE? Are the upvotes (and downvotes, hereafter implied instead of repeating these parentheticals) here generally moderate, left, right, or what?
(This question is based on the occasional observation that uninspired posts which seem to be little more than collections of weaker partisan talking points appear to be more popular than might be expected. Perhaps I'm fatally biased...)
The lack of examples is deliberate. This isn't about the merits of a given post, it's about upvote leanings.
Also the distinction between upvotes and upvoters is intentional, since it's not inconceivable that there are more of the former than the latter, so it's less controversial to go with the numbers we have.
This Q. could replace the word conservative with a synonym or a contrary, say either liberal or right wing or left wing, and the logical content would still be identical.
