I don't know where you get the 24% figure from, as with most of your claimed facts you never provide a reference, but it doesn't jive with any data I've seen. While it is not the exact link I was looking for this one contains a link to a pretty detailed survey of political demographics in America.
For a long time, I've assumed that creating the kind of ideological change that will result in parity between progressives and conservatives is going to be a mammoth task. That's largely because ideological self-identification in exit polls has produced pretty steady results for a long time - about 33% of the electorate identifies as conservative, 20% as liberal, and the remaining 47% as moderate.
