Among Republican presidential nominees in the last 20 years, Donald Trump is seen as the least conservative, according to a Gallup poll released Tuesday.

Here are the results of how respondents view the Republican presidential candidate:

  • 47 percent view him as conservative;
  • 22 percent view him as moderate;
  • 19 percent view him as liberal;
  • 12 percent don't know.

George W. Bush was believed to be the most conservative with 68 percent in 2004, while 18 percent said he was moderate and 8 percent liberal.

The 2006 Republican candidate John McCain was seen as conservative by 62 percent. While 26 percent see him as a moderate, 9 percent believed the senator was liberal.

In 2012, 60 percent of pollsters were of the view that Mitt Romney was conservative while 21 percent said moderate and 11 percent believed him to be liberal.

Voters were asked to rate Trump using a 5-point scale regarding views — "very liberal," "liberal," "moderate," "conservative" or "very conservative." The practice has been on for prior presidential candidates since 1992.

The survey, which was conducted from Sept. 14 to 18, had 931 respondents, with a 4 percent margin of error.
