Mississippi Rates as the Most Conservative U.S. State

Vermont, Rhode Island, District of Columbia have highest percentages of liberals

PRINCETON, NJ -- Mississippi is home to the largest percentage of conservatives among U.S. states, with a slim majority identifying their political views as conservative. Several other states, including Idaho, Alabama, Wyoming, and Utah approach 50% conservative identification. Vermont, Rhode Island, and the District of Columbia have the greatest percentages of self-identified liberals.

The top 10 rankings make clear that conservative identification is much more common than liberal identification, with each of the top 10 conservative states at or above 45% identification and only the District of Columbia exceeding 31% liberal identification. In the nation as a whole, Americans are about twice as likely to identify as conservative as they are to identify as liberal, a pattern that has persisted for many years. Americans are also more likely to say they are conservative than moderate.

Not surprisingly, then, conservatives outnumber liberals in every U.S. state. Only in the District of Columbia do liberal identifiers exceed conservative identifiers (41% to 18%). Vermont (30.7% conservative to 30.5% liberal), Rhode Island (29.9% to 29.3%), and Massachusetts (29.9% to 28.0%) have the closest state-level division between conservatives and liberals. (The full data on ideology by state can be found on page 2 of this report.)

The most conservative states are typically in the South and West. The least conservative states are in the Eastern part of the country and on the West Coast.

Generally speaking, ideological self-identification tends to be stable over time. As a result, the most and least conservative states have not changed much in recent years. Of the top 10 conservative states in 2010, 8 have been in the top 10 in all three years Gallup has compiled these data at the state level. Of the top 10 liberal states in 2010, 7 have been in the top 10 in all three years.

On average, states saw a one-percentage-point change in their conservative or liberal identification between 2008 and 2010. In contrast, over the same period, party affiliation (as measured by the percentage identifying or leaning Republican) shifted by an average of three points per state, resulting insignificant shifts in the competitive positioning of the parties in many states.

Implications

The conservative political label continues to prevail by a significant margin in most of the U.S. states. Additionally, ideological identification has been largely stable in recent years even though there has been greater change in party affiliation at the state level. The 2010 elections brought more politicians who are conservative into office at the state level, and some of the results are evident in the approaches state governments are taking to deal with their biggest challenges, such as attempts to cut pay or benefits of unionized state workers to address revenue shortfalls and budget deficits.

Vermont? Howard Dean country for sure. Hang a Left at the stop sign.

But where is Texas and Arizona? As much the usual suspects harp on those 2 states it seems the real deal is under their radar screen. Hang a Right at the first intersection.


"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

US Congresswoman Barbara Jordan (D-TX)

Testimony to the House Immigration Subcommittee, February 24, 1995

Texas is much more interesting than Mississippi.
