Most liberal:

1. Detroit
2. Boston
3. San Francisco
4. Seattle
5. tie between New Yoek and LA

Most conservative:

1. Colorado Springs
2. Tulsa
3. Oklahoma City
4. Omaha
5. Des Moines

I disagree with Indianapolis being among the most conservative. Its more like half and half, because the City-County Council and registered voters in Marion County are split evenly when it comes to party affiliation. In fact, Indy is becoming a bit more open minded in social issues.

Whoever thinks Dallas is one of the most conservative cities needs to get out more. Dallas is one of the most liberal cities in Texas, next to Austin.

And Indianapolis is half and half, but more open minded than it used to be.

Forget it, man. Because it's Texas and NOT Austin, that perception will stick.

I guess it's easier to think in stereotypes....

Omaha wouldn't be one of the most conservative. Omaha's electoral vote actually went to Obama in 2008 since Nebraska can split electoral votes by district and has had a dem mayor since 2001.

That settles it. Those are very conservative areas. Its not a bad thing, I live in Plano and love it and Im liberal.

The city of Dallas itself and most of Dallas county is pretty liberal. Its not top 5 in the US liberal, but its on par with other cities like Atlanta or Houston in its liberalness. Austin is a different kind of liberal. Its more like Portland liberal.

The donut counties of Indianapolis are very conservative. The exception would be Hamilton county which can get pretty liberal when it comes to Indianapolis paying for it (public transportation) then there's no limit or amenity they would forego. Marion county itself is straight down the middle at this point and I include all of Marion county because everyone votes for Indianapolis mayor including the excluded towns and everyone is included on the City Common council even though the excludeds have their own mayors and councils.
