Alabama has taken the crown previously held by Mississippi as the most conservative state in the union, according to a new Gallup poll. Last year the top four were Mississippi, Utah, and Wyoming, with Alabama coming in fourth. Overall, Americans in 2012 remained more likely to identify as conservative (38%) than as moderate (36%) or as liberal (23%), although liberals have gained 2 percentage points compared to 2011.
On the liberal side, the medalists have gotten stronger. Washington DC, Massachusetts, and Oregon, the 2011 liberal top three, retain their titles...Residents of Washington DC are more liberal

Well look at that: a website from the 90s.
I see the usual bashing of southerners going on in the comments, as usual...I have a simple question: Why are so many ‘blue staters’ moving to the south? (I don’t say ‘Yankees’ anymore since people are coming from California, as well...)
Alabama state motto: At least we’re not Louisiana
Yes, and the Sun is bright and the night is dark. Some of the middle of the road states surprised me but most of this is common sense.
I showed up in S. MS for the AF in 1986. Grew up in Rochester NY. Still in S. MS and glad to be here after 26+ years.
This proves the GOP strategy of running moderates and stuffing conservatives in the closet is sound /s
Louisiana state motto: At least we're not California.
Mississippi motto: No where to go but up.
Liberal—committed to individual freedom, less government.
Not nowadays. Now they use they term progressive and libertarians have used the term “classical liberal”. Liberal is a misnomer here. You have LESS freedom in statist
places like Massachusetts. Are we subjects or citizens?
I thought we tried to break apart from a tyrannical
king in 1776.
Oh and these days “teaparty” is a dirty word.
Nah, our motto is more like “At least we aren’t New York or California..”
Or maybe “If we were the Rebels how come we seem to be some of the few that know what the Constitution is about...”
Kansas Motto: At Least were not Missouri.
If you removed Atlanta from Georgia it probably would be the most conservative state.
If all of Florida South of Orlando was cut off and drifted away, Florida might just be the most conservative.
Funny stuff...Nice pics of the Shepherds BTW.
Here's a pic of my 105 pound cutie, in one of her more playful moods..
Most are from 2008, and i do not know of any from the 1990s except states (including District of Columbia) with the highest concentrations of homosexual households (2000)
Thanks. Ma near the bottom as usual.
