Gallup: Wyoming, Miss. Most Conservative States

Residents in these regions are far more likely to boast of their rightward tilt than their liberal counterparts in the most left-leaning states, according to a new Gallup poll.

A majority of residents in these states identified as conservative rather than moderate or liberal during the first half of 2010, making these the most politically conservative states in the U.S.

Meanwhile, here's what the poll identified as the most liberal states:

The 10 most conservative states have no fewer than 46 percent of their residents identifying as conservative. In contrast, the 10 most liberal states have a much lower threshold of 25 percentage liberal identifiers in their states.
