    I’m a liberal. I will probably always vote Democrat, unless something drastic changes. I was raised in the Catholic Church, but neither of my parents are very religious. Now, I’m agnostic, I guess. Both of my parents used to vote Democrat (my mom still does), but my dad is a pretty big libertarian now. I live in a very liberal city in a very liberal state, so it works for me!

    I am conservative, Christian, pretty traditional living in a very red state amongst a lot of very conservative people. However; I am not necessarily tied to a certain party, and although I have historically voted for Republicans, I don’t live and die by what my voter registration card says.

    I’m an unconventional liberal who is currently exploring her religious beliefs. Come election time, I side with the Democratic Party, even though I disagree with some of the things the politicians do. Fiscally, I am fairly liberal, and I value my socially liberal beliefs to the point of rarely supporting Republicans due to their social policies (there are a few Republican politicians, such as Christie, that I don’t have a problem with, though).

    I am from Ohio, which is a notable for being a swing state. Specifically, I am from a Cincinnati suburb that is a pretty mixed bag politically (six-figure salaries were not unheard of in my school district, but many students were also the children of professors or from other careers that require lots of education). My family is conservative, though; the only major issues I agree with my dad on are respecting religion and being pro-gun control.

    Moderately to strongly liberal (depends on the topic), nontraditional, agnostic Buddhist living in a liberal enclave surrounded by conservatives.

    I’m socially liberal, fiscally conservative and theologically (and registered as) a libertarian.  Fiance is almost exactly the same, so it works out well.  My family is liberal all around and FIs family is also extremely liberal and votes democrat across the board, which I find interesting since they are the “rich old white people” that liberals love to complain about ๐Ÿ˜‰  Fiance and I are both agnostic leaning towards athiest, both of our families are christian but non-practicing.

    I suppose the fact that I side socially with liberal beliefs but side strongly with conservatives for economic practices makes me “non-traditional” but who knows.

    Liberal, no longer religious, if I choose to apply for citizenship and can vote in next or next next election would probably vote green (or democrat if still living in a swing state because i would rather a center-right party than a far-right party), live in a swing state.

    In nz I vote for left wing parties, whilst democrat is fairly similar to our “right”

    @chillinchillin:  I’m a liberal opinionated female environmentalist Democrat living in Wyoming and working a job that often intersects with oil and gas development.  Definitely out of place in more than one way!

    But, my particular town is one of the more liberal in the area and all my friends think very similarly.  (Duh, they’re smart and awesome.)

    I am a pretty liberal person, non religious but spiritual, the area I come from is mostly liberal where it counts (in terms of how our votes usually lie) but apart from a few select areas it’s ALL conservative.

    I suppose I’m nontraditional as well because I was raised traditionally so bump that noise, lol.

    I VOTED in your Poll as follows:

    LIBERAL – as in I’m not a Conservative person, I have more liberal points of view.

    AND

    In Canada we have several Political Parties… of which the two biggest are known as the LIBERAL PARTY OF CANADA – and the CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF CANADA (other National Parties also are the New Democratic Party – Green Party – and Independents)

    Just the same, although I am Liberal minded (socially progressive), I am also a fairly CONSERVATIVE / TRADITIONAL person as well… ie clothing, sense of style, etc.

    Altho I was raised in a fairly religious household (Methodist background), I consider myself to be more SPIRITUAL THAN RELIGIOUS.

    My area of Canada is considered to be quite Liberal / Modern… vs some other areas.

    Hope this helps (somewhat)… realize that Canada & the USA are vastly different on this topic.

    Interesting thread.  I’m a very liberal Democrat, although I tend to be traditional in other ways.  I am agnostic on my best days and atheist the rest of the time.    ๐Ÿ˜‰  My family is overwhelmingly conservative and religious, although my dad paradoxically votes Democrat (which caused untold number of arguments with my mom when I was growing up; my brother and I would just roll our eyes when they’d get into it).  DH is a liberal, non-traditional atheist whose family is fairly similar to him.  I honestly prefer his family to mine when it comes to sociopolitical discussions.    

    Here in Pittsburgh it’s striking – the city itself is very Democratic while the suburbs are more conservative, especially the more affluent one in which we live.  (Although that’s probably a typical national trend, based on demographics).

    I’m spiritual but not overly religious, moderate-liberal, typically democrat (though would probably more closely align myself with the Green Party). I’m pretty traditional in most ways. We recently moved from a swing state to a red state.
