No surprises - what isn't driven by academic interest is driven by welfare.

St. Louis is a deceptive case. The city and county are split into separate governments-- the city overwhelmingly Dem, the county much stronger Republican. Depending on how they calculate statistics, it can be deceptive of the area as a whole-- it is NOT more liberal than New York.

I look at it as a guide of where not to live.

I look at it as a guide of where:

1.) not to shop.
2.) to stop in the event nature calls.
3.) the IQ of the general population is lower.
4.) bitterness and pain are prized attributes.
5.) a mild preview of hell is available.

So, as a rule, I agree!

I think #44 needs to be clarified. While Springfield is not exactly conservative, it would appear so compared to nearby Amherst/Northampton, home to UMASS and Smith College (and the other three colleges in the area).

The level of liberal infestation is at pandemic levels there.

I guess they were doing the biggest cities in the area, but even then, as a person who has lived in both areas, Amherst/Northampton could easily bump Boston from its lofty position.

I take issue with Birmingham and New Orleans being listed so highly here.

Birmingham and New Orleans are not liberal, they are black, and there is a difference. The votes the Democrats get there, they get because African-Americans vote straight Democratic tickets.

Birmingham is something like 71% black, and New Orleans is roughly the same. Take those two numbers, and combine this with voting percentage, and you realize, it's not ideology that drives this, it's ethnic block voting, if the Republicans can make some good gains among black voters, you'll see those margins disappear real quickly

Dallas is not liberal at all; not if you consider the Metroplex. The city limits contain a preponderance of minorities who, unfortunately, think democrats are the best choice. Dallas is surrounded by huge satellite cities: Plano, Richardson, Garland, Irving, and so on, all of which are heavily conservative.

How in the hell did Chapel Hill, NC not make the list??

I cannot believe that Durham would be more liberal than Greensboro.Maybe Chapel Hill-Durham should have been listed together.

A lot of these cities listings are directly proportional to the concentration of block minority voters. e.g., Detroit, MI and Gary, IN.

Same thing with Richmond, VA (my current home) and Columbia, SC (my previous home); high minority populations = more liberal. In both places, there is a direct correlation between percentage of black voters and just how "blue" an area is. Columbia sits in the midst of two counties; Richland (north and east) has a high minority population and is mildly blue; Lexington (west and south) has a lower black population and is one of the reddest counties in the state.

Interestingly enough, the city of Richmond (#50) just elected Douglas Wilder, Virginia's first black governor, as mayor. Wilder is a Rat, but he is less liberal than most, and surprisingly conservative fiscally. I don't really like him that much since he's also arrogant as hell, but he's an independent thinker in a lot of areas, and Richmond could've done much worse (i.e., elected a Kwame Kilpatrick clone).

Judging by the size of the other cities on the last, I'll bet the Chapel Hill Soviet Socialist Republic was too small, unless they lumped it under Durham.

How do they define 'city'? Because Ithaca NY should be high on that list. It's got 2 superlib centers- Ithaca College and Cornell, and a horde of academic elitists. I do believe it was the only city in which more votes were cast for Nader than Bush in the 2004 election.

Most of these Democratic cities are pretty great when you consider that the Democrats keep the real estate and labor costs cheap enough to widen commercial margins and allow a frenzy of localized business activities. After work you just drive home to the suburbs and vote Republican.

I have a hard time believing that Honolulu is more Conservative than Knoxville or Chattanooga or Peoria. I think Gary and Detroit are definitely two of the most Democratic cities but I don't think they are more liberal then Berkley or San Fran. Some of the blacks actually hold rather conservative religious values and are somewhat less liberal then people in Berkly and such areas. Though they are no doubt more Democratic. Especially if you count all of the dead people that vote in those two cities.

Exactly, and if you go to their website, they have this tripe article about that equates black with liberal, and then claims that the Conservative/Liberal divide is really racial.....

I believe they are not operating out of pure non-partisan motives, and in fact, have their own agenda they are pursuing with their "research"

There has got to be something wrong with this list!

Eugene OR is home of the eco-terrorist/anarchist movement. Remember all the workers who were killed and maimed by trees “spiked” by murderous tree-huggers? Remember the riots at the WTO conference? Eugene is the breeding ground for these nuts.

You’re telling me that Memphis is more liberal than Eugene?

As I alluded to earlier, Birmingham is not so much liberal as it is black, and the same could be said for alot of the cities on the list. Though I do find it odd that Montgomery was ranked as so conservative, especially when you consider that Montgomery County was the highest population county that Kerry carried, once again, due to a large black population.

One of the cities they have listed in the top 50 is Jackson, Mississippi, a city in which they just elected a tough-on-crime candidate as Mayor, a candidate who was able to combine support from whites and blacks.

Jackson is home to roughly 190,000 of the 230,000 residents of Hinds County, MS. In Hinds County, the same sex marriage ban amendment carried by a margin of 58%, with 79% in favor, 21% against. Kerry carried the county with 59% of the vote. By comparison, in Harrison County (Biloxi, Gulfport, etc), which has roughly the same population, a county which Bush carried with 70% of the vote, only 76% of voters voted for the gay marriage ban.

In Michigan, the gay marriage ban only passed by a 4% margin in Oakland County, which Kerry won by an even more narrow margin. In Wayne County, which is where Detroit is located, Kerry won in a landslide. The gay marriage ban also passed by a more healthy 10% margin, and I would be willing to bet that if you broke it down by precinct, that thing carried alot of the majority black precincts.

What all of this says is, African-Americans are conservative when it comes to culture war issues, and I believe there, there is a chance for inroads to be made.

The list, along with the various comments posted so far indicate that the scourge of liberalism is far worse than generally believed. Everyone seems to have a story about some bastion of lefties overlooked by the list compilers. I know one for the list, Walnut Creek, California. Liberal ground zero.

I used to be a truck driver.

Once I stopped in a truck stop in Gary, Indiana.

They had dry erase boards on the walls of the bathroom stalls to stop people from writing on the walls.

I found that to be pretty funny.

Racine, Wisconsin has a very high teen crime rate. To cut back on the teen crime rate in Racine, instead of backing tougher law enforcement, the editor of the local rag suggested a new and worse version of the Great Society, liberalism's biggest failure to date.

He had a ten point plan, which I won't go into detail here (because I can't remember every point for one thing), but it advocated things like mandatory twenty percent jobs hiring and automatic promotions for all minorities. The motto of Racine could be "Commit a Crime, Get a Job and a Promotion". Most of the other points were about as bad. Nowhere did he advocate tougher law enforcement. I threw my local liberal rag, which had reprinted the article, down in disgust.

34-Madison,Wisconsin

It is hard for me to imagine what life must be like for Republicans in the top 33 liberal cities. Madison sucks.

Just count every major city in the Unted States.
And many counties too.

Thats why I prefer to call them "under control of the NAALCP" as opposed to "Black controlled". Most blacks would be considered conservative if it wasn't for the NAALCP telling them to vote dimorat.

237 - Provo, Utah

Provo is the home of my alma mater, Brigham Young University.

95- - Salt Lake City, Utah

Most of the Democrats in Utah live in Salt Lake City, home of the University of Utah.

"Ummm HELLO?! Where the hell is Boulder, CO? It's far more liberal than the other CO cities listed."

BUMP what the lady says!

For that matter, my vote would be to switch Inglewood CA (6) with Long Beach (70)...having lived in or near both.

Amherst/Northampton could easily bump Boston from its lofty position.

Hell, the Pioneer Valley could bump Ithaca, Yellow Springs, Berkeley and Madison.

I worked in Amherst from 1988-1991. No wonder I drank.

I know one for the list, Walnut Creek, California. Liberal ground zero.

I didn't see Santa Cruz; now there is a festering smelly pile...

I think you might agree there is a Bermuda Triangle of psychosis - - Santa Rosa, Monterey, Sacramento and anything in between them.

Look at the map, draw it out, the area is infested...
