More Americans describe Themselves as Socially Liberal: Welcome to the Party

I self-describe myself as fiscally conservative and socially liberal and it seems America is following the trend.
For the first time in at least 16 years, Americans are equally likely to describe themselves as socially liberal as they are to say they're social conservatives, a new Gallup poll finds.

Thirty-one percent of Americans say they're liberal on social issues, with another 31 percent calling themselves conservatives and the rest identifying as moderates.
This is exactly why stiff-necked GOP opposition to immigration, gay marriage, and legalizing pot might damage the GOP brand among younger people. I certainly wouldn't vote for a socially conservative nominee for President because the country has changed. They might not think it has changed for the better but you have to acknowledge things are different that 16 years ago.
