Washington, May 26 (ANI): There are more than twice as many Americans who consider themselves conservative on economic issues as opposed to liberal, a poll has showed.
According to the Gallup poll, almost half of those surveyed, 46 percent, said that their views about the economy are conservative, while just 20 percent said they were liberal. About a third, 32 percent, claimed themselves to be moderate when it comes to the economy.
The result also shows 38 percent Americans as more likely to be conservative on social issues compared with 28 percent who said they are liberal and 31 percent were found as moderate.
According to Politico, from 2001 to 2008, while an average of 42 percent of Americans identified themselves as being conservative on economic issues, in the past four years, this average has climbed to 48 percent, along with a decline in people who said they hold moderate views on the economy.
The Gallup Poll was conducted May 3-6 among 1,024 adults, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. (ANI)
