While we're (I) on the topic, what would all of you say are the most liberal cities/metros in the country? Aside from the traditional San Fran, Boulder, Madison, San Diego, and New York (I know these claims are going to upset some), are there any others that people know about?

These are all the ones I can think of outside of Madison, NYC and San Fran.

Boston, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Miami, Seattle, Chicago. Portland, OR, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, St. Louis

Ann Arbor is very liberal too.

DC is not all the liberal metro wise, but the city is very liberal, that's the way a lot of the cities that have mentioned are.

90% of DC voted for Kerry, which I guess is a pretty overwhelming way to put it. I'd say Baltimore is less liberal than DC, especially the counties around it. The DC area is pretty liberal while the Baltimore suburbs barely have a liberal lead or are very conservative (ie. Anne Arundel, Harford, etc.)

Yes, DC is extremely liberal, the maryland suburbs went to kerry by a lot, esp. PG, and Fairfax, Arlington, and Alexandria did too, it's the outer burbs went bush, but with towns like SF and Boston out there, there are much much more liberal places overall.

From personal experience, I've found that these cities fit the bill:

Portland, ME
Burlington, VT
Boston/Cambridge, MA
Providence, RI
Springfield/Northampton/Amherst, MA
Hartford, CT
New Haven, CT
New York, NY
Philadelphia, PA
Washington, DC
Cleveland, OH
Minneapolis/St Paul, MN
Ann Arbor, MI
Madison, WI
Austin, TX
Miami/Fort Lauderdale, FL
Lawrence, KS
San Francisco/Berkeley, CA
Los Angeles, CA

^ Since we're talking about metros, which are usually several counties combined, this map might help:



It looks like the areas around Boston, San Fran and Minneapolis have the highest count of blue and purple counties, with very little red in the area.

I think it would be much easier to discuss conservative metros since most urban areas tend to lean more democratic. Conservative metros are definately the exception
