    @This Time Round:  Technically right now the NDP is bigger than the Liberals ๐Ÿ™‚

    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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

    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.

    @Steampunkbride:  Agree. I have no idea who I would vote for it I was in the USA

    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!
