Alabama was the most conservative state in the union in 2012, with more than half of state residents describing themselves as politically conservative, according to a new survey released today by Gallup.

Alabama is majority conservative.
And Massachusetts consistently elected Ted (thankfully, now dead Ted) and Bawney, along with Fauxahontas?
And they actually consider themselves more sophisticated than bubba and the boys?
Imagine that - all the sh*t California takes on this board and the state doesn’t even show up in the top ten most liberal.
Why does North Dakota have a democrapic senator?
The great secret about California is that once you get out of the coastal strips from Santa Rosa to Monterey and Santa Barbara to San Diego, it pretty much is Alabama.
Similar to the love Texas gets on this board and it is not in the top 10 conservative states.
Yet, AL still had counties that went for the Bamster...can’t be said of OK.
Only if Alabama is a desert...
I am surprised that Texas did not make the list.
Lots of people who tell a pollster they are “conservative” have opinions that would get them zotted from FR within a week.

Yup, same as the polls where folks identify as Christian.
OK is a bit more ... how shall I put this ... monochromatic than AL. Holder’s people voted for 0...
Roll Tide. Man, am I glad I was born here and again live here after 35 years away!!!!
Georgia didn’t make the top 10. We need Sherman to visit an burn Atlanta again.
The bad news about California is that most of the people live in those coastal strips and they control the legislature and the electoral votes.
The poll is bogus, otherwise they wouldn't have Landrieu-siana on the list.
Yeah!!! My birth State, that is my born again eternal birth State. Love Alabama!!!
Roll Tide/War Damn Eagle!
I am from North Dakota, so I think it is possible that ND rats are more conservative than New York or California rats. ND is a great place to live, except for one thing. It is too dang cold, and Alabama is too dang hot.
Monochromatic would be mostly correct for the more rural areas but the metro areas definitely have a complete color palette. As to AL, I’ve passed through three times in recent years, noticing that monochromatic could apply there, too, but only using your noted Holder scale.
Best AL attraction: Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.
Speaking as an AL native, you nailed it.
Right you are. State population is about 35% black. Those counties which went for the "1" are overwhelmingly black, e.g., the "black belt" counties which were designated such for the color of the soil and then later because so many slave holders settled in the same area.
Of course, bankrupt Jefferson County has Birmingham, which is 72% black. 'nuff said.
Just remember - we in the South get three horrible months in the summer to your three horrible months in the winter. Right now, blue skies and 59 degrees with a light north wind blowing down from North Dakota.
Alaska is becoming more libertarian in the last ten years.
Anchhorage is mostly that and left where the rest of the state with its sparse population is long time conservative.
I'll take Alabama in a heartbeat over this pathetic regressive degenerate pit of sodomy. Oh, and we just recently footed the bill for a guy who is in prison for life for the murder of his wife to have a sex-change op. Wonderful state here. Just wonderful.
I have it on good report that most Alabama lake bottoms are littered with firearms lost in boating accidents.
Alabama is 26.5% black, 66.8% white, and then other, per US Census stats.
>>I’ll take Alabama in a heartbeat over this pathetic regressive degenerate pit of sodomy.
And yet you still choose to live there?
Hell. I hate Ohio anymore. This state should be nuked from orbit, after I’ve gotten my family out of here of course.
Aaaaack! My beloved Texas didn’t even make the top ten? Sheeesh...
