8. It's difficult to make sound claims about the "ideology" of the majority
You have your hard cores on both sides and then people in the middle who don't have hardened or consistent ideologies. You can say they have non-attitudes, or environmentally conditional attitudes. It's hard to say what the majority of people really are.
