(Politico) – For the first time in the decade and a half that Gallup has been tracking Americans’ ideologies, the percentage of those identifying their views on social issues as liberal has equaled the percentage of those who call themselves socially conservative.

Among 1,024 adults surveyed earlier this month, 31 percent said they were socially liberal — and 31 percent said they were socially conservative.

The findings mark the lowest percentage of self-identified social conservatives and the highest percentage of self-identified social liberals since Gallup began asking the question in 1999.

In 2009, 42 percent of those surveyed called themselves very conservative or conservative on social issues, the highest percentage in the data set. The low point for social liberals came in 1999, when 21 percent identified themselves as such.
