No doubt about that Colorado Springs seems like it belongs in some entirely different state(mid-west)..I spent two years living in that city while I was in the military. When i would leave that city and return to Denver I felt like I was back in Colorado. It's not as conservative today now though.. I have been spending some time there recently..still
it's very different Boulder and Denver are more or less becoming fused together socially and politically.

Springfield is the problem child for Massachusetts. Lawrence is a close second. But the biggest black sheep by reputation in Massachusetts would most definately be Lynn, Lynn, city of sin, never come out the way you come in. And yes Fitchburg is crawling with Camaro's and mullets.

and for the rest of New England..

Connecticut - Bridgeport
Rhode Island - Pawtucket (the bucket)
New Hampshire - Rochester (Rottenchester), Laconia as well.
Vermont - St. Johnbury
Maine - Lewiston, Sanford second.

In Washington state ...

Spokane. It's geographically removed, it's socially more conservative, and has more religious people.

On the other hand ...

King County is the gorilla in the state. Most of the rest of the state is either conservative or leaning democratic. King Co. is dominantly democratic, so basically, anyone who carries King Co. in referendums carries the state, usually. So from that perspective, Seattle/Bellevue/Redmond are the black sheep (but also the biggest sheep in the state).

I'd say Tacoma or Crackima (Yakima) have worse reputations. Seattle gets national praise so hard to see it as a black sheep. But the industrial city to the south coined for its stench the Tacoma Aroma would be more of an appropriate black sheep city. I always thought one of the worst places was Centralia/Chehalis area, yuck!

It hits under its weight

for the 7th largest city in the Country it is rather wimpy.
That's not what a black sheep is though. Texans really have no issue with either SA or Austin. I'd say Waco was a black sheep before either of those.
