They'd be in the middle of Haidt's curves. Somewhat lower in care and fairness than liberals and somewhat higher than conservatives. Somewhat lower in authority and ingroup and purity than conservartives, but higher than liberals. I think Haidt has grouped people based on some other questionnaires regarding their politics, and not just self-identification, although the two overlap to a very large degree in general.
