As the confidence level increases, the margin of error increases.

The margin of error can be defined by either of the following equations.

Margin of error = Critical value x Standard deviation of the statistic

Margin of error = Critical value x Standard error of the statistic

Hence, at 95% confidence their is more margin of error than at 90% confidence.
