While North Dakota is conservative - the elected Republicans are not.
Not certain what is meant by KS being conservative but not necessarily Republican, or is it Republican but not necessarily conservative?
This must surely have been counted before this past election or January 1, 2013. What ever, our governor, Sam Brownback and the people in Topeka are rolling back liberal/RINO projects and laws off the books, working for an income tax free state and lastly, working to have direct election of our judges, sweeping out all of the Planned Parenthood/George Tiller loving judges out of office!
‘And while Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas rank in the Top 10 conservative states, they are not considered among the most Republican.’
In other words it is a b.s. poll.
BTW you are absolutely right about North Dakota. Hoeven could just as well be a Democrat, and Heitkamp would be a Communist if she didn’t have to win any elections. Even the state legislators are squishy and tend toward Scandinavian communality.
Montana is a weird one too. Leftist transplants have taken over the larger cities (Billings excepted, but not by much) and now both senators and the governor are lefties.
But the Montana statehouse still has lots of good conservatives...the kind who were movement conservatives before it was a movement. Knock wood.
