No I do not believe "much of the US is very conservative." Much of the US is socially progressive, including many conservatives. Where you'll find strict solid conservatism you'll find much older and poorly educated Americans and a small minority of extremely wealthy claimed to have pulled themselves up by their bootstraps (big lie) individuals, ie Koch brothers, Trump, etc. (Trump spends half his time as a democrat and is in many respects socially progressive/fiscally conservative -- a lot like Hillary except Hillary is more socially conservative (against gay marriage until she was for it, etc).) Green -- Hillary is not, from Wikileaks: "At a private meeting with the Building Trades Council, Hillary Clinton bashed environmentalists who oppose natural gas fracking and insist the United States must keep all fossil fuels in the ground. She said these environmentalists need to “get a life.” A transcript of a part of the meeting, which took place on September 9, 2015, was published by WikiLeaks."
Just try taking social security away from conservatives. Try taking Medicare away from conservatives. Try taking public education away from conservatives and while you're doing so send 'em a monthly bill for police protection, fire protection, public libraries, public education, our judicial system and use of the courts, the FDA, and on and on.
