American voters are more conservative on money matters than social issues, a new poll finds.

The Rasmussen Reports survey released Tuesday finds 44 percent of likely voters describe themselves as conservative when it comes to taxes, government spending and business regulation, while 41 percent, say they're moderates. But just 13 percent consider themselves liberals on money matters, the poll finds.

On social issues like abortion, public prayer and church-state topics, 35 percent describe themselves as conservative, 32 percent say they're liberal and 30 percent say they're moderates, the findings show.

And though the survey finds 27 percent saying they're conservative in both fiscal and social matters, and 11 percent saying they're liberal in both areas, 62 percent say they're a combination of the two.

The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

In other findings, the poll shows:
  • 74 percent of Republicans say they're fiscal conservatives and 24 percent say they're moderate; on social issues, 64 percent of GOP voters are conservative, while 28 percent are moderate.
  • 54 percent of Democrats say they're fiscal moderates, and 27 percent say they're liberal; 53 percent of Democratic voters consider themselves social liberals, while 31 percent describe themselves as moderates.
  • Men are more conservative than women in money matters; the two are in general agreement on social policy. Older voters tend to be more conservative on both fiscal and social issues.
