I just wanted to know if you guys think if the political climate in Charlotte is changing or is it still too Conservative. If this has been discussed on here before, sorry, I'm just new to the board and just wanted to know!

Yeah, that's really ridiculous! Too conservative? You gotta be too liberal and maybe better off staying where you are!

Personally I see it is becoming too liberal.

Charlotte is too liberal? Hell no, Boston and New York are too conservative.

Default Changing

I'm not sure what Charlotte use to be, but since it is a large banking center you would figure that it would be conservative, but I have encountered many liberal free-thinking individuals since arriving. Quite surprising and refreshing.
I think the country, Charlotte included, is ready for a change. Additionally, with an influx of Northeasterners it is bound to change the political climate. I am on meet-up.com, and there are several liberal groups that meet.

It isn't "too Conservative". And mind you, its Conservatism is what has spurred its success, especially in the past 30 years. Suburban areas are typically Conservative, and downtown neighborhoods are Liberal. That is a rather common pattern, established long ago. Of course, Conservative doesn't necessarily mean "Republican", nor does Liberal establish you as a "Democrat". Charlotte has prospered well under Conservatism, and it doesn't need to change.

Ever heard the term if it ain't broken, don't fix it?

I think most people can find a space here, regardless of how conservative or liberal he/she may be. Some cities have a very different "feel" to them, such as Boulder, CO and Madison, WI, both of which I consider to be a lot more "liberal" than CLT.

Most cities feel like CLT to me in that nothing is blatantly "in your face" as far as being really conservative or really liberal.
