Most Generous: Liberals or Conservatives?
Political views do not predict how much money a person will donate to charity, according to a new study. But conservatives and liberals do support different kinds of causes.
Conservatives and people in conservative-leaning states are more likely than others to donate to religious organizations, while people in liberal-leaning states are more likely to donate to secular nonprofits, the study found...the findings about overall giving rates run counter to previous studies by scholars that have shown that religious conservatives give more than secular liberals.
