After Three Years of Biden, America Takes Sharp Turn Right as Social Conservatism Is Highest in a Decade

After three years of Democrat President Joe Biden’s failures, American citizens have taken a sharp right turn, according to a new poll.

Gallup’s latest Values and Beliefs Survey reveals that conservatives top liberals on social policies and the economy, the two biggest issues in America.

“For most of the past eight years, Americans were about as likely to say they were liberal as conservative on social issues,” Gallup said of the results.

“This year, there is a more obvious conservative advantage.

“The shift is mostly due to increasing social conservatism among Republicans, at a time when social issues such as transgender rights, abortion, and other hot-button concerns are prominent in the national public debate.”

Gallup asked respondents to describe their political views overall.

They were asked to answer without reference to social or economic issues.

40% say they have conservative views.

Meanwhile, 31% say they have moderate views with just 26% being liberal.

Since 2021, there have been double-digit increases in conservative social ideology among middle-aged adults — those between the ages of 30 and 64.

At the same time, older Americans’ ideology on social issues has been stable, Gallup revealed.

However, there has been a modest increase in conservative social ideology among young adults.
