I'm certain that the constant tension between the "metro" (approx 85% of the population) and the city (approx 15% of population) is really helping with your national recognition.

When people outside of Cincinnati say "Cincinnati" they are referring to everything from flying into CVG (not in Cincinnati) to going to Kings Island (not in Cincinnati).

Their opinion is generally informed by the WHOLE.

I suppose we could have checkpoints, when entering and leaving the city, to reinforce to people just how small the actual area of the CITY is, compared to the whole metro, so that folks won't mistaken attribute their pleasant experience in Blue Ash at their 4th of July celebration to something in the City. But personally, that feels silly to me.

With a population of less than 300,000 in a metro of 2.1 million people, that's not saying much for the city of Cincinnati. So, the metro is conservative and little Cinci is liberal; a small fish of liberals in a big pond of conservatives.

Btw, we all know why the Creation Museum, The Ark Experience are in Cinci's metro and good old Kim Davis isn't too far away either.

I know Cinci likes to portray itself as being liberal but no one believes it given the dominance of conservatives in the area. The tri-state is Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. C'mon.

If you'd check your geography, you will notice that Rowan County (Kim Davis) is over 100 miles from Cincinnati. Your post is the only time I have ever heard Kim Davis referred to as part of Cincinnati.

If you'd like to go that route try googling Jim Obergefell ...

Cincinnati can't start growing more until Ohio becomes a lower tax state. If Ohio had the same tax structure as Florida you'd see many people not leave and a few more move in. You can't change the weather or geography but a lot of Sun Belt Flight is self inflicted. How many more Ohio companies will leave before this happens?

It is simple to get information on Cinci and its attributes/features if one is interested...
Yes. We really do need to remember the two observations you made above: first, that from the very beginning the original question was inherently a dubious one that could have been answered with more research; and, second, that from the very start, all such information (good and bad) was readily available.

Hopefully, we can trust that the OP by now has made a more extensive effort to learn about Cincinnati and discover not only just how many times the city actually has been mentioned in national media, but also the reasons why.

Very true. This is precisely why I left my home state of Connecticut and also hundreds of thousands of other people have headed South for the most part. Taxes and the outrageous cost of living and doing business. For the most part with a few notable exceptions like Minnesota and possibly Iowa, the states that are seeing most positive business and population growth are down south now. I think even the west is not seeing the growth it once did except in a few major metro areas.

OH does have a high tax structure especially personal property taxes. That needs to be addressed.

Didn't say she was in ''Cincinnati'' but she's lurking just outside the metro....

I honestly don't know why the Creation Museum is Boone County. I guess the guy from Australia moved there? But why Boone County over other parts Ky? Boone County is one the most conservative counties in Ky, but not he most. I think that goes to Pulaski County. Like I said, I don't really care why its there.

You can't include Rowan County in Cincinnati's metro. That's just absurd.

So again just to make sure....Cincinnati is liberal, Cincinnati metro is not.
Didn't say Rowan County is in Cinci's metro; it does actually border it though.

I know the Cinci city is trying to re-invent itself as a progressive, liberal city, the Portland of Ohio (see the streetcar).

The Creation Museum and the Ark thingy are in Cinci because they are a cultural fit. No judgment on whether this is good or bad but a contradiction to Cinci portraying itself as being liberal.

Cincinnati is in Bluegrass Country.

I'm unsure whether your correctives will benefit this poster. Numerous other attempts to tell him the same thing have been unsuccessful. Neither facts nor sound reasoning deter him from repeating over and over his tiresome misconceptions about Greater Cincinnati in his desperate hope that someone, somewhere, somehow will actually believe them.

We haven't had a Republican mayor in decades, though our current Democratic mayor isn't very popular with liberals in the city. Republican often don't even run a mayoral candidate because they know it's useless.


What's your point? Are Democratic leaders "better" than Republican leaders? The city of Detroit has had continuous Democratic leadership since the early 1960s. I don't see people running to move there.

True enough. My hope is not to change Kamms mind but to provide the truth for the other poor readers of this ridiculous thread.
