Just as the post say's, is this area more liberal or conservative with the way things "work".

Is there any data that the question would be answered differently if one would add; "pre-boom and major change of demographics in Charlotte"?

Has the influx of transplants changed the political picture? I haven't been around long enough to know.

It's actually pretty moderate overall, for a city. I do believe Charlotte is trending left.

In my law classes, I am finding that the majority of law makers (and especially those in the NC Supreme Court) are VERY conservative. This is actually known throughout the country, especially in area of employment law.

and, Pink, no, it really has not mattered (maybe in the school board, but, that is it) due to the influx of transplants.

For some reason I had the impression Charlotte was more conservative. Probably because I came form liberal New England and it was interesting to run into many conservatives and listen to radio chanels like WBT which are very rare up North.

I think once you get out into the county and especially down in S.C. it gets more conservative. Uptown and areas near the city are probably more liberal.

Frank, it IS more conservative when compared to other cities in the northeast for sure.

However, with the influx of so many folks in recent years, especially from the northeast, it is less conservative now than it has ever been.

The tendency toward more liberal agendas right now will drive more and more natives from the area.
