No offense, to Austin--but must we really go through this again? I mean Austin is liberal, but it is not top 5.

Miami is not conservative. The Miami metro is the liberal stronghold in Florida. Dallas and Houston both have very liberal inner-cities but conservative burbs.

The 5 most conservative cities in my opinion are...

1. Oklahoma City
2. Tulsa
3. Colorado Springs
4. Little Rock
5. Salt Lake City

Tucson?

Certainly you're joking. Tucson is hardly conservative. It's been liberal-leaning for a long time. You must be thinking of Phoenix, and yet it isn't one of the top 5 most conservative cities in the US. I think you're just throwing names of cities out there without doing your homework.

Nice try though.
