"America has become a slightly more liberal and a slightly less conservative nation than it was in 2011 -- based on residents' self-reports of their ideology -- but conservatives still outnumber both moderates and liberals," the Gallup report authors note.

The most conservative states were in the south, midwest and mountain west, with the most liberal states on the east or west coast, according to the poll.
