On the basic spectrum of political ideology, people might identify themselves as liberal or conservative or libertarian, Republican or Democrat or Independent.
But as this year’s report from the Pew Research Center on political typology shows, the divisions between people within those categories are wide enough to identify eight separate categories of political ideology.
The survey, comprised of responses from more than 5,000 adults over the summer, categorizes respondents as follows, from most conservative to most liberal: Core Conservatives, Country First Conservatives, Market Skeptic Republicans, New Era Enterprisers, Devout and Diverse, Disaffected Democrats, Opportunity Democrats, and Solid Liberals.
