What flavor of Republican or Democrat are you?
July 1, 2014 - Andrea Johnson
Are you a steadfast conservative, a young outsider or a faith and family leftist?
There's an interesting new Pew Research Center Poll that breaks down some of the different political factions in this country. Some of it touches on the discussion we've been having about the upcoming Presidential election and the merits of the different candidates. You can find out where you stand by taking the quiz at http://www.people-press.org/quiz/political-typology/
According to the poll, steadfast conservatives are "socially conservative populists" while business conservatives are another breed entirely and are more likely to be both in favor of Wall Street and in favor of immigration. Both groups are more likely than not to vote Republican.
As for the liberals, they range from solid liberals who vote Democratic no matter what to the so-called next generation left, who are younger, pretty liberal on social issues like legalization of gay marriage but are less apt to support social welfare programs. "Faith and family leftists" are religious and represent a variety of ethnicities. Hard-pressed skeptics have been worn down by the economic woes of the past decade and are skeptical about government, though they depend more on social welfare programs than other groups. 'Young Outsiders" are fiscal conservatives but more liberal on social issues.
