Gallup lists most conservative, liberal states

alabamaGallup released a poll Friday that looks at the distribution of political ideology in 2012. The results “generally reflect the familiar ‘blue state,’ ‘red state’ patterns that define the political geography of today’s modern America,” Gallup noted.

The results rank Alabama as the most conservative state, although three of the 10 states with the¬†highest Republican majorities — Kansas, Montana and Alaska — do not rank among the most conservative.

The District of Columbia is rated as the most liberal, which comes as no surprise to anyone who has been to Washington, D.C., recently.

Florida comes in as the 28th most conservative state, trailing Colorado and Wisconsin, which should dispel the myth that we are a center-right state.

Alaska is shown to have the most moderates, which is all the more interesting when you consider that former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin had an approval rating as high as 93 percent at one point, as USA Today reported.

    I doubt if you will see anyone from the Governor's office touting these numbers.

  • LeftiesAreDopes

    These numbers reflect the success of leftism in public schools and universities, and (this is an assumption i am making) the movement of people between the states, bringing their collectivist politics with them. The highest ranking conservative state barely breaks 50%. These are not good numbers. It is likely that over the next 2-5 years, we will see the conservative percentages in the minority unless people get an education or conservatives move to the more conservative states en masse; both tall orders.
