Table of Diversity Element: Conservative

The Table of Diversity Element Conservative (Co) is in the eleventh column, Political Beliefs, on the Table of Diversity.

"The four Republic-oriented groups include three groups of conservatives: Faith and Flag Conservatives are intensely conservative in all realms; they are far more likely than all other typology groups to say government policies should support religious values and that compromise in politics is just 'selling out on what you believe in.' Committed Conservatives also express conservative views across the board, but with a somewhat softer edge, particularly on issues of immigration and America's place in the world. Populist Right, who have less formal education than most other typology groups and are among the most likely to live in rural areas, are highly critical of both immigrants and major U.S. corporations.

Ambivalent Right, the youngest and least conservative GOP-aligned group, hold conservative views about the size of government, the economic system and issues of race and gender. But they are the only group on the political right in which majorities favor legal abortions and say marijuana should be legal for recreational and medical use."

Pew Research Center:

"Republican-leaning groups largely believe government is doing too much, that everyone has the ability to succeed, obstacles that once made it harder for women and nonwhites to get ahead are now gone, white people largely don't benefit from societal advantages over Black people, that political correctness is a major problem and military might is key to keeping the U.S. a superpower.

They divide, however, on economic, social and foreign policy. One economics, there are splits on whether corporations make a fair amount of profit and if taxes should raised on the wealthy. They also don't fully agree on which is more important- oil, coal and natural gas expansion or developing alternative energy supplies.

On social issues, they diverge on whether same-sex marriage or abortion should be legal, if government policies should reflect religious beliefs and even whether they feel uncomfortable hearing people speak a language other than English in public places. There are also differences on whether election changes that make it easier to vote would make elections less secure.

On foreign affairs, some think the U.S. should take allies' interests into account; others do not."
