The Gallup survey of 1,011 adults found that 39 percent of American adults say their "views on political issues" have grown more conservative in recent years, compared to 18 percent who say their views have grown more liberal and 42 percent who say their views have not changed. The poll was conducted June 14-17. In fact, all three political identity groups show that adults are more likely to have grown more conservative than liberal. Among Republicans, 47 percent say they are more conservative and 9 percent more liberal. For Independents, it's 37 percent (more conservative) and 19 percent (more liberal), and for Democrats, 34 percent (more conservative) and 23 percent (more liberal). The survey complements Gallup data released in June showing that conservatives outnumber liberals by a nearly 2-to-1 margin -- 40 percent to 21 percent -- when Americans are asked to label their political views. Thirty-five percent call themselves moderates. But it's too early to say America is a solidly conservative nation. On some issues, including abortion and gun control, Americans have grown more conservative since Republicans last won a national election in 2004, while on others -- such as on immigration -- Americans seem to have become more liberal, Gallup data shows.
