The Pew Research Center’s Political Typology looks beyond “Red vs. Blue” in American politics, sorting voters into cohesive groups, based on their attitudes and values – not their partisan labels.

Use this tool to compare the groups on key topics: U.S. & Economy, Politics & Elections, Government & Economic Policy, Foreign Policy & Security, Domestic Policy and Religion & Society. You can also compare the groups by their demographics.
