@This Time Round: Technically right now the NDP is bigger than the Liberals 🙂
Depending on the issue, I typically fall somewhere between moderate to conservative. Sometimes that matches with being Conservative, but not always. In the US I wouldn’t vote Republican, but I think I would have to live there to really know if I would vote Democrat.

Moderate, usually lean more democrat but not registered, nor would I ever. Local area is very democratic, but not ‘liberal’. Highly unionized area, dad was an auto-worker. Voted ‘spiritual’, I was raised Catholic, but dislike organized religion (see choice/equal rights). Lean left on environmental issues, science, climate, union organization and choice/equal rights, along with other social issues. Lean right on gun-control, some social issues also. I feel very strongly on key issues I lean left on though, so I have yet to vote republican. I used to see myself being able to do so, but in the last few years, the party has gone way to conservative for me to even contemplate doing so. 20-30 years ago I probably would have been a rebulican though.

@lolot: Hah- a good friend/labmate of mine from grad school just moved to North Dakota for a job as an aquatic ecologist. He feels the same.

@chillinchillin: I consider myself to be a Moderate. I vote for the candidate I think is best suited for the job. I have voted Republican, Democrat, and Independent. I’m registered as a Democrat and tend to vote mostly Democrat. I’m Protestant and prefer a non-denominational church when I attend. I would consider myself to be more spiritual than religious. I live in fairly Conservative area although the demographics are changing fairly rapidly.

I am considered quite conservative in a lot of areas (economically, educationally, policies), yet more moderate on social issues. I am religous. I have no real clue about the parties in the States, but here I am a Conservative through and through. I am religous and am quite traditional (our right wing party that is not as far right as the party in the States, is what I understand). In the city I live in it really depends on the region you are in. Some pockets are more right wing, others are more Liberal, while others are further left (NDP). So I cannot say for sure if it is more moderate or whatever. That being said I think the majority are just left of center to moderate Conservatives.

I’m a God-fearing, Episcopalian, pro-choice feminist who believes in ghosts. 🙂 I live smack dab in the middle of the Bible-belt, so I sometimes stick out like a sore thumb.
By The Way, I find this thread SUPER interesting. Great idea, OP. 🙂

I admit the political groups are US centric as that’s where I’m coming from, sorry international bees! much love to you still. I’m adding US vs international to the poll to acknowledge. If those categories don’t apply skip them. i tried giving differents options as not everyone, us or otherwise, relates to these definitions, and considering yourself one thing has no bearing on being another.
i’m really just curious when political posts come up what the general vibe is around here. for one post for ex I was surprised by the results of a poll, and it got me wondering for no reason other than curiousity!

A Trotskyist Socialist about as Atheist as you can get (both a catholic background so I know my way around a mass). So not conservative or traditional at all.

Liberal/Democrat/Non-religious, but living in/went to college in conservatopia (Texas). I didn’t vote on traditional/nontraditional because I wasn’t sure. Depends on what we’re talking about.

I’ve got a major lean to the left, am entirely atheist, and in terms of the ballot box, I’m a Greenie! I consider myself a Progressive.
I’m surrounded mostly by people who vote Dem but aren’t sure why, except that Rep would be worse (which I obviously don’t view as a good enough reason).

@Mrs_Amanda: My Japanese teacher was raving about Marche tonight. I’ve never been — The Wild Cow’s within walking distance, so that’s usually where I end up. I’m MAD STOKED about Ken’s Sushi opening on Main though, eeeee!
