According to a recent Gallup poll, more Americans now identify themselves as "conservative" than "liberal" in all 50 states--more than at any point in the last four years.
In 2009, 40% percent of respondents in Gallup surveys that have interviewed more than 160,000 Americans have said that they are either “conservative” (31%) or “very conservative” (9%). That is the highest percentage in any year since 2004.

Only 21% have told Gallup they are liberal, including 16% who say they are “liberal” and 5% who say they are “very liberal.”
 
Thirty-five percent of Americans say they are moderate.
