Not so much on immigration and taxation, according to a Newstalk survey on political beliefs
Nearly forty per cent (39.9%) of Newstalk listeners surveyed believe they lean left in their political views, with just over thirty-two per cent (32.2%) claiming to lie in the centre and almost twenty-eight (27.9%) thinking they are more right-wing.
However, a closer look at the results reveals that while listeners have more liberal views on social issues such as gay rights, healthcare and the father's role in the home, they are more conservative on the rights of immigrants and the economy.
Newstalk created a visual infographic that breaks down the data.
The key survey findings are as follows:
Analysing the survey results, Claire McGing of NUI Maynooth says:
"There is a distinct left-right divide on social and economic issues: listeners hold highly left views on social and other issues, but are quite right-wing on taxation and immigration issues.
"In many ways, these are outliers - listeners are more left of centre than they regard themselves to be."
1,674 took part in the survey between 14th - 19th March 2013.
