Looking for a nice conservative-minded state to call home? Well, move to Alabama, top state for those of right-minded ideology, according to the latest Gallup poll.

“Alabama has won the title of the most conservative state in the nation, followed closely by North Dakota, Wyoming, Mississippi and Utah,” Frank Newport reports, at Gallup. Other red states include Oklahoma, Idaho, Louisiana, Nebraska and Arkansas.

More than 50 percent of Alabamans identified themselves as conservative to pollsters; between 45 and 49 percent of respondents in the other nine states reported similarly, Gallup reported.

For a heads-up of the most liberal: It’s Washington, D.C., the poll found.

There, nearly 41 percent of poll respondents identified themselves as liberal-minded.

Other liberal hotspots: Massachusetts, Oregon, Vermont and Delaware, according to Gallup.
