Political Ideology In The 50 States
The Gallup Poll has released its yearly analysis of political ideology in all 50 states. The charts above were made by questioning 177,788 adults between January 2nd and December 30th of 2016. The margin of error for each state is between 3 and 6 points (depending on the sample size in that state).
Conservatives still outnumber liberals in the United States, but don't have a majority. In 42 states, the conservative group slightly decreased in 2016, while it increased in 4 states and stayed the same in 4 others.
