Do you live in the most conservative states?

Wyoming and Mississippi are the two most conservative states in the country, and the District of Columbia and Rhode Island have the highest proportion of liberals, according to a new Gallup poll.

The poll doesn't gauge objective political positions on issues such as health care reform or federal spending, but rather asks respondents to define themselves as conservative or liberal on their own terms.

  • Michigan is a funny state.

    We're a mostly red state but have always had strong union presence and our populated areas are mostly blue.

  • One guest editor is talking about Bush tax cuts expiring on small businesses(too bad no one told him that they were not expiring on small businesses),
    -----------
    Aren't they expiring for those making over a certain amount of $, like $250K? That would include a whole lot of small businesses.

  • Up shes- that's how it is in most large states. The areas with the large voter population are heavily blue and the areas with fewer people tend to be red.

    Obama is a socialist, The Tea party, One guest editor is talking about Bush tax cuts expiring on small businesses(too bad no one told him that they were not expiring on small businesses), but hey he admitted to get his info from Fox.
