Opinion

Traditional values versus today’s values

Traditional values are not what they used to be. Gallup reports Americans have become much more liberal regarding social issues over the past decade. For the first time since Gallup began measuring Americans’ views of social issues, those who consider themselves to have liberal views equal the number of those who consider themselves to have conservative views.The largest gap appeared when conservative social views peaked at 42% in 2009 and liberal social views dipped to 22% in 2010. That 20% gap closed in 2015.
