Now that I think of it, I have yet to read anything bad about Atlanta on these boards

I voted San Francisco and I'm glad to see it winning this poll. San Francisco boosters ALWAYS resort to including the entire Bay Area/NorCal when describing its position as the second most powerful "city" in the country (according to them). No other area does this to their extent (though D.C. boosters are now playing this inflation game as well lol) but they expect a pass, because, ya know, The Bay. This would be like if Newark, New Jersey folks ALWAYS represented the Tri-State Area for their arguments. Technically correct, but very misleading.

So San Francisco homers, please base your arguments on your CITY first. If The City was so awesome and powerful, Oakland would be a district of yours already, and not your sports rivals in a separate city across the bridge. If it's truly one big SF love fest up in the Bay, just start annexing or make one big ass county like everybody else. Only go Voltron in an argument if the other guy does so first. Boston isn't "claiming" Providence as a given in an argument, though they can, if need be. After all, they're about the same distance from each other as San Jose and San Francisco, and just as connected. Stick with The City first, then MSA. Don't use your CSA as a default. You have a very great city, but using your CSA first just comes across as disingenuous and desperate to win. End rant.

Such waste of poll options with Denver, Houston.

You should have included San Diego, New Orleans, and Honolulu instead.

Exactly my point haha

Phoenix is nice. Surely I would rather live somewhere else but I mean I would rather live in Phoenix over many other places, and for a reason of course. Phoenix has a lot of good qualities.

I feel like Denver and Houston were legitimate poll options. I would agree they aren't the most popular on the forums but I have seen a lot of posters give a lot of positive comments about the two, some of them sounding a little too braggy if I shall say. I rarely see posts about New Orleans or Honolulu, but San Diego I could've added I guess. I wasn't going to include every city in the country on this poll, haha.

I personally am going to vote for NYC on this one, but it was a hard choice for me.
New York is justified, San Francisco is not.

Honolulu is probably one of the most underrated on this whole site for what is. New Orleans is praised, but it also gets its fair share of bashing for crime. San Diego should definitely be on there though
