political typology sorts Americans into groups


Views on religion and social issues

Political typology reveals deep fissures on the right and left — including on questions about religion

Pew Research Center’s new political typology sorts Americans into cohesive groups based on their values, attitudes and party affiliation, and provides a unique perspective on the nation’s changing political landscape. In many ways, the partisan imprints of the typology groups are clearly visible on questions about religion and social issues. However, in some cases, the varied religious profiles of the groups result in patterns of opinion not typically seen on other political measures.
