The question for today’s poll is pretty straightforward: Which of the following best describe you political views?

Here are the options, in alphabetical order:

  • Consistently conservative
  • Consistently liberal
  • Mixed
  • Mostly conservative
  • Mostly liberal

They’ll be in a random order in the poll — see top of right sidebar to make your selection.

    My views don’t fit neatly in any one box – socially liberal, fiscally conservative, with a libertarian streak. I don’t care what you do with your life as long as it’s not affecting mine, but that also includes personal responsibility. Government is there to cover the basics, but they’re not your parents, there to bail you out every time you screw up.

    • Mark-AL says:

      AMEN! And let’s place double-emphasis on “personal responsibility.”

    • That’s why Pew provided “mixed” as an answer.

      • JZ71 says:

        My point was that neither major party reflects my views, and in most governmental bodies, especially above the most local levels, party trumps person. The terms presented are usually directly associated with one of the two major parties – conservative = Republican, liberal = Democratic – and in many government bodies, the extremes, on both ends of the spectrum, seem to be driving an agenda that misses my interests by a wide margin. Politics, at the state and national level, have bifurcated to the point where civil dialog seems to be an impossibility, while disrespect and gridlock seems to be the daily game plan!

        • You’re choosing to read political parties into the poll, whereas I was trying to avoid parties. This poll was about seeing where people fall on the conservative vs. liberal scale; at the ends, toward the middle, or in the middle.
