No such thing on city-data.

Most people who vote in a poll like this are not familier with either city. When I vote in a poll; example, Philly vs Pittsburgh, I may vote for Philly because it seems more cosmopolitan and livelier, but I don't actually know if Philly is better than Pittsburgh because I'm not familier with both cities.

A fair and unbiased survey would entail canvasing 100 people from other cities who have spent at least a week in both Dallas and Houston with identical itineraries and have no emotional or personal ties to either city.

Currently the results of this poll could mean 9 more people think Houston is a better city or there are at least 9 more voters from Houston with an axe to grind. Who knows...

Dallas vs. Houston . . . hmmmm. Why not a poll asking whether you would prefer a punch in the stomach or a jab in the eye?

I live in Houston, doesn't mean I can't be honest about how I feel about it.

Well, can't be great for everybody I guess. Every city has a number of people who live there and dislike it. No place is perfect.

Actually it's not that bad, but some Houstonians have a real attitude. They need to at least pretend to know that sh*t in Houston smells just as bad as it does in Dallas, and everwhere else.

It dosen't matter if we point out the flaws ,were still depicted as being annoying and exaggerating about Houston. No one ever (except TXGUY) makes Houston out to be the best city in the world.

this is why polls about cities in one state don't work in a general forum. people will make comments like this.

Maybe a poll like this would work for another state, or two other Texas cities.
