Here Are The Most Conservative And Most Liberal Cities In America

Are your political Facebook posts pissing off everyone around you? Do everyone’s political Facebook posts piss off you instead? Well, according to Forbes, you may be living in the wrong city. Based on data from an MIT study, Forbes just released a list of the top 10 most conservative and most liberal cities in the U.S., and some of the results may just surprise you.

Conservative:
10. Aurora, Colorado
9. Tulsa, Oklahoma
8. Omaha, Nebraska
7. Anaheim, California
6. Arlington, Texas
5. Jacksonville, Florida
4. Colorado Springs, Colorado
3. Virginia Beach, Virginia
2. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
1. Mesa, Arizona

A few surprises here. I thought all of California was left-leaning, but it turns out you can actually vote for Rubio in at least one city without neighbors showing up at your porch with burning torches. I’m also a little shocked that two of the cities in a state known for legal weed come in on the top 10 most conservative list, but I guess those profiting from the sales care more about what a republican vote does to their finances than their lifestyle stances. If you live in one of these cities, I would probably recommend keeping your opinions about recent SCOTUS rulings to yourself unless you want to be bombarded by your high school friend’s aunt commenting that “Your going to hell.” Overall, unsurprisingly, if you want to keep your “Reagan Bush” bumper sticker on the back of your truck, you should probably hang around in the South somewhere.

Liberal:
10. Baltimore, Maryland
9. Buffalo, New York
8. New York, New York
7. Detroit, Michigan
6. Minneapolis, Minnesota
5. Boston, Massachusetts
4. Oakland, California
3. Seattle, Washington
2. Washington D.C.
1. San Francisco, California

Again, a handful of surprises on this list. I always assumed that everyone in Baltimore discussed donating millions to their Republican nominee of choice while unceasingly consuming white wine and crab cakes, but it appears I’ve been mistaken all of these years – you’ll still have to go to Connecticut for that. Additionally, NYC itself doesn’t even rank in the top 5 of this list, which proves shocking in and of itself. Unsurprisingly, San Fran takes the cake, as all of our low-country, politically-ranting great-aunts would have guessed (do those only exist in the South? Y’all will have to let me know). If the majority of your Internet friends live in these 10 cities, feel free to post hourly about the SCOTUS decision and put that cute little rainbow filter over your profile pic – you’ll probably get more likes than ever.
