Liberals outnumber conservatives in only six states, according to the latest Gallup survey.

That’s a drop of 30 percent from the previous survey, which found nine states where liberals have the edge, the Washington Examiner reported.

The six states are Massachusetts, Hawaii, Vermont, Washington, New York and New Hampshire.

Additionally, in California conservatives and liberals split 29 percent to 29 percent.

Nationwide, Gallup said, those who identify themselves conservative hold a nine-point lead.

Gallup noted, however, conservatives previously had a 21 point lead, and some state figures fall within the margin of error.

Gallup said that in 25 states, the conservative advantage is significantly greater than the national average.

And in 19 “highly conservative” states, conservatives outnumber liberals by at least 20 percentage points.
