Social liberals gain upper hand

May 22, 2015

As recently as 1999, social conservatives outnumbered social liberals almost 2 to 1. I would not have guessed that. We were at the start of the first internet boom. The genomics revolution was in sight. All my friends had long since stopped caring about who slept with whom, and in what fashion. I guess I didn’t account for the hinterland. The good news from Gallup is that social liberals have caught up, and that the trend is the right direction. As the graph below shows. The one caveat is that this measures self-description, so there may be as much change in how people view themselves, as in actual views.
