Um, serious, who is going to vote for Portland in this survey? Everyone in their right mind knows that Seattle reigns supreme in PacNW. However, I don't feel that Portland and Seattle are in any form of competition.

Factor in the home prices, and I choose Portland. Every time.

I went with Portland just because its different. I like Seattle, but Portland is quieter, cheaper, etc.

As much as I love the Pacific northwest, Seattle & Portland are big disappointments to me in relation to the hype they receive. Neither are very active downtowns after dark and Seattle is littered with nothing but drifters and stoned addicts in the supposed tourist hot spots between the waterfront and Pioneer Square. Portland is morbid and is becoming overrun with far left nut jobs. Again, terrific REGIONS, but I wouldn't choose either city.

A far-left nut job to you is probably a perfectly normal/intelligent person to me, and is part of the reason that I chose to live in Portland. Also, most homeless people are completely harmless.

The funny thing about left wing nut jobs as opposed to right
wing nut jobs is they tend not to recruit and are easier to avoid.

Hardcore left wingers - self loathing and introspective
Hardcore right wingers - self ordained and compelled to spread the word.

The majority of us here are moderates and disregard the
hypocritical nature of both sects.

Portland is weird (cool) but lacks diversity.
I have only visited Seattle maybe a dozen times or so.
I liked the vibe hated the traffic.

For city life? Seattle. For family? Portland.
