Its more like a deliberate deception to get what they wanted which was power.  For example FDR ran as a fiscal conservative and then gave us the New Deal which was simply more of Hoover's intervention. After a few decades the name stuck to the wrong people.  The average person doesn't make any distinction and at this stage it doesn't really matter.
Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard. -- H.L. Mencken

If one rejects laissez faire on account of man's fallibility and moral weakness, one must for the same reason also reject every kind of government action.   -- Ludwig von Mises
