Fewer voters are identifying as liberal and more voters are identifying as moderate or uncertain, according to a new poll released Thursday.
A Morning Consult poll found that the percentage of voters self-identifying their ideological affiliation as “somewhat liberal,” “liberal” or “very liberal” has dropped 7 points over the last five years the survey was conducted.
Liberals have made up a little over or a little under a third of U.S. voters over the last five years, while conservatives have maintained the majority at just under 40 percent.
From 2017 to 2022, the share of voters identifying as liberal dipped from 34 percent to 27 percent, while those identifying as conservative rose from 38 percent to 39 percent.
However, voters identifying as moderates or uncertain about their ideological affiliation have increased.
