The Constitution was a conservative document because it established the electoral college instead electing the U.S. President by majority vote.

It had to be conservative in order to pass. The US was very weak at that point and any mishap, like dividing over certain things in the constitution could lead to major problems for the young US

The conservative interpretation of the constitution is: the conservatives believed all that they worked for was being threatened by the government. The pgoressive interpretations believed that the constitution held enlightenment ideals (i.e. liberty) and that the document empowered regular people.

When speaking about the US Constitution, a conservative political leader tends to regard the Constitution as a document that severely limits the powers of the Federal government. In other words, while some people see the Constitution as being "flexible" the conservative sees it not that flexible at all. Another term to fit the question is "Strict Constitutionalist".

The constitution was not a conservative reaction to the revolution but a radical reaction. The concept of a federal system as expressed in the constitution was a fairly radical notion at the time.

The British Constitution is uncodified, not written down. It is entrenched in the laws of the nation. There is no single document with the constitutional laws written down.

The Constitution allows everything, unless it specifically forbids it. A loose view of the constitution simply means that one has a more liberal view of the rules and regulations present in the document. A strict view would imply that one views the constitution with a conservative approach, believing that the rules should be interpreted literally. Jefferson believed in a strict view of the constitution while he was an advisor. When he became president, his view changed; He supported a more loose view of the document in accordance with his policies. Hamilton, on the other hand, always supported a loose view of the living document.

A conservative Republican is one who plays by the rules of the constitution. Now, theoretically you must follow the steps of the constitution always, but they just follow it more efficiently.
