Today, of course, you can add the millions of immigrants of Spanish heritage, and now many large metro areas in the Southwest can be added as well.
True. Of the Twin Cities, St. Paul has always been much more Catholic than Minneapolis. Irish and Germans and Eastern Europeans settled there in greater numbers and Scandos, less so. The Cathedral is in St Paul, not Mpls, and up until the 70s, the name of the Diocese was "Diocese of St Paul". Today it is called the "Diocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis."

Death penalty:Liberal
Gay Marriage: Conservative
The War in Iraq: Liberal
Immigration: Liberal
Abortion: Conservative
Add to that:
Government funded social safety net: Liberal

Example, a couple weeks ago, the Archbishop of St Paul/Mpls wrote a letter to MN's legislative leaders imploring them to not cut services to our most vulnerable citizens due to our state's current budget impasse. He used the term "moral imperative". One of the GOP legislators wrote a letter back basically telling him to mind his own business. Another GOPer tried to make the case in an editorial that it is morally indefensible to use tax funds to help the sick, the poor, the disabled and the elderly.

I say why not both the Catholic Church and the government get involved?

Statistics by Diocese might be closer to what you're asking. Going by that some Texan cities near the Mexican border have the highest percent. Then Providence, Rhode Island and Houma-Thibidaux, Louisiana. Lafayette, Louisiana and Boston, Massachusetts being two others with over 50% and Rockville Center the last one over 50%.

Kansas City I think has two churches that are allowed Tridentine Mass. The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest was allowed use of Old St. Patrick Oratory in Kansas City, Missouri and The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter have Blessed Sacrament Church in Kansas City, Kansas. Both these groups are in communion with Rome, not schismatics.

I checked the list. I would expect more Catholics to be in the Archdiocese of Atlanta than in Seattle. Seattle is thought to be one of the most "unchurched" cities in the nation. Somehow, the Archdiocese of Seattle has more Catholics, and a higher percentage of Catholics than the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

Most of the South, exempting Louisiana and Texas, tends to have a fairly low percentage of Catholics. Looking it up the figures for 2009 say the state of Georgia is 9% Catholic while Washington state is 16% Catholic.

See how U.S. religious landscape has changed in nearly 2 decades - USATODAY.com

So Seattle being higher in both "unchurched" and Catholics wouldn't necessarily be contradictory facts. I'm pretty certain Seattle is much lower than Atlanta in Baptists, Pentecostals, and historically African-American denominations.
