Most Conservative States

America has been increasingly politically polarized since the start of the Twenty-First Century. The ideological divide is usually split between those who identify as liberals and those who see themselves as conservatives, who vote Democrat and Republican respectively. The two ends of the spectrum, conservatives and liberals, have differing views on social values and the size and scope of the government. 

The Republican Party, America’s conservative political party, was founded in 1854 by abolitionists as a rival to the Democrat Party. Famous presidents that were members of the Republican Party include Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, and, most recently, Donald Trump. 

Staples of the Republican Party platform include lowering taxes, shrinking the federal government, and promoting free trade.
