Detroit is the most liberal U.S. city while Provo, Utah, is the most conservative, a study of voting patterns indicates.

 

The list was compiled by the Bay Area Center for Voting Research in California through an examination of voting in 237 U.S. cities with populations of more than 100,000.

 

"Detroit and Provo epitomize America's political, economic and racial polarization," BACVR Director Jason Alderman said in a release Thursday. "As the most conservative city in America, Provo is overwhelmingly white and solidly middle class. This is in stark contrast to Detroit, which is impoverished, black and the most liberal."

 

Gary, Ind., was found to be the second-most liberal followed by Berkeley, Calif.; Washington; and Oakland, Calif. The group that did the ranking is based in Berkeley, not far from Oakland.

 

Texas, home to President George Bush, has three of the five most conservative cities, as determined by BACVR, including Lubbock and Abilene in the Nos. 2 and 3 spots and Plano in the fifth spot. Hialeah, Fla., was ranked fourth.

 

BACVR offered no detailed breakdown of its methodology.

Hialeah?? That's interesting.? Is it mostly Cubans or something?

Yeah. Hialeah voted overwhelmingly for Bush.

 

The Cuban oldtimer vote is a heavily Republican. The post-Mariel crowd as people like to call it is about 50-50.

 

Funny thing is the mayor is very liberal, borderline moonbat you might call it. :mischief

I figured either that or that Hialeah was the place all the upper-class white folks fled.

Haha. I am from Hialeah.

 

Yes, our mayor can be a "moonbat" but he has fixed up the city big time. I remember a point in time, before the renovation on Okeechobee Rd. begun, we had another mayor and he was a piece of crap. There were bums living by the canal on Okeechobee. Raul Martinez came back in office and the bums were gone. Martinez has fixed roads left and right. Right now, they are in the process of constructing an underground tunnel under the train tracks on Okeechobee Rd.

 

Our mayor isn't liked but one has to admit that he has cleaned up the city in the years he has been in office.
