How Liberals and Conservatives Differ on Matters of Faith

“Most liberals, as well as conservatives, consider themselves to be Christian. However, the proportion of adults in each group who embrace that identity differs significantly: 94% of conservatives call themselves Christians, while just 74% of liberals do so.

“The research shows that nearly one-third of all adults (32%) consider themselves to be ‘mostly conservative’ on social and political matters, and about half as many (17%) claimed to be “mostly liberal” on such matters. The other half of the adult population generally takes a position somewhere in between those opposing viewpoints.”
