Actually, I know a handful of us, but it's like you have to be very cautious about admitting it. I can handle it when people act surprised, but it really annoys me when they act horrified.

I think Tucson seems to be winning along with Northern New Mexico.

Agree or Disagree anyone???
Any additions one would like to add?

Just to let you know, Santa Fe is more similar in climate to Utah, with more snow and colder temperatures than Tucson. I was in Santa Fe this past October and I would consider it more deserty than Utah, but not really "cactus-style" like Arizona. I think it's mainly because of the altitude. The architecture makes it feel very Southwestern, though.

Tucson/Pima County leans Democratic.

In all the Phoenix metro of over 3 million people there are a lot of liberal people and democratic voters, just not in the majority of course.

Central Phx, downtown, Tempe, and some other pockets are liberal, or at least un-conservative and have some nightlife, culture, art and whatnot you don't get in more conservative suburbs.

It's not as bad as the national news makes it out to be here.

Since you are a current resident. What would you have to say about Scottsdale and Paradise Valley in terms of the subject??

Unless you get a big kick out of watching CNN shade your state of residence blue each November, I'd recommend taking a little bit more time to study the prevailing political culture of different areas beyond the party they most frequently elect.

Yes, Albuquerque is more Democratic than not. We do have a Republican mayor, but although I'm a Democrat, I like our mayor, for the most part. He's fairly moderate, and I do think having someone fiscally conservative (but not to a draconian extent) makes sense right now. This is no time for municipalities (or our municipality anyway) to be going deeply into debt in order to fund some visionary projects. Of course, Santa Fe is more monolithically Democrat than Albuquerque, for sure.
