D

% students labeled themselves conservative: 25
% students labeled themselves liberal: 24
% students labeled themselves middle..: 51

% students labeled themselves liberal+middle..: 75

But 77% of students have endorsed this liberal position.
so atleast 2% of students who are conservative have to endorse this.

Its D.

Because even if we add all middle of the road percentage and liberal percentage still few percentage are needed to make 77% liberal.
