top-conservative-and-liberal-cities-in-the-united-statesAre your political views aligned with the voting statistics of your nearest city or metro/suburban proximity to that city? Do you fit in? Are you planning to move and are curious about the political viewpoints of your new area? Or are you simply curious to know which are the top conservative and liberal cities in the U.S.?

Here’s your answer…

The top twenty five conservative cities in America share many common characteristics, including larger than average Caucasian populations, a large percentage of married couples, smaller city size, and higher income and education level than average.

The top twenty five conservative cities come primarily from the South, non-coastal areas of the West, and Southern California, which is indicative of a conservative voting trend in these two regions…according to the Bay Area Center for Voting Research.

The twenty-five most liberal cities in the United States share much different characteristics than their conservative counterparts—many have large African American populations, large portions of the populations are single, many are larger cities located in urban environments, and lower average levels of income and education are prevalent.

The top twentyfive liberal cities come mostly from the traditionally liberal Northeast and West coast, with a surprising number of cities near the top coming from the Midwest…according to BACVR.

Each of he following lists of top 50 conservative and liberal cities represent nearly 20% the number of cities in the United States with populations over 100,000.

Another way to look at the political landscape is a very interesting one… a ‘cartogram’, where the area of spaces on a map is determined by a variable other than geographic area. In this case, it’s population: Make the most populous counties proportionately larger than the least populous counties.

84 percent of Americans live in the largest 25 percent of counties. 50 percent of the population lives in 5 percent of counties.

Here is the traditional red-blue (conservative-liberal) map of counties and how they voted overall…united-states-counties-voting-map

Here is the same map but a cartogram which takes into account the population contained within each county…united-states-counties-voting-map-cartogram

And even more telling, perhaps the best, is the following map which shows the same cartogram but includes the margin of victory. This map truly shows the blend and stark differences of the United States overall…
