I saw this on another thread. I won't quote the person, but just quote the quote:

Quote:
I'm trying to understand why so many people I've met in the Cincinnati area are in denial with their political beliefs - they bash Obama at every opportunity, express beliefs that appear to be staunchly conservative (e.g. opposition to public transit, freedom center, etc.), blindly put faith on anything blurted out by Fox News, and yet claim they are not conservative.
I'll just do a poll...do you AGREE or DISAGREE with this statement? Why or why not?

This is a troll thread which I have reported. Please don't waste our time with this type of stuff.

If it turns out to be false, than people can put false on the poll. Than it'll be proven to be false.

It helps potential relocaters better understand an area as well.

On almost all the forums, it's common that people debate the politics of the region - particularly people who are trying to identify if an area if it follows their own politics.

Default What do you mean?

This may well be a troll quesiton but it an interesting one nontheless.
First define "Cincinnati". The city itself (population 330K) is anything BUT conservative - You have to go back 30+ years to find a majority Republican council. And the city is reaping the result of this ideological mistake - increased crime, increased poverty (recently named one of the top ten cities with the largest percentage of people living in poverty).

The suburbs are a different matter though. For the most part they are conservative in their leanings. They are more self-sufficient, have better schools, lower crime.

I started out living in the city and moved to Green Township (one of the most conservative areas in the country) 30 years ago. No way would I move back to the city in its current state of chaos.

It's an irony laden topic. I consider myself a political moderate with liberal leanings. The waste and incompetence of the city government makes me pretty darn nauseous. Love my home, would prefer it were in one of the townships but as it happens, it isn't. Moving now to the purportedly conservative Hamilton County Government, the history of socialistic style government handouts for unaffordable projects like the stadiums and the Freedom Center also makes me pretty darn nauseous. And addressing the original post, taking the metropolitan area as a whole, it seems to me like people are mostly VERY conservative and not reticent about saying so.
