Just wanted to chime in that I feel that parts of OC are moderately socially liberal at best; they are nowhere near as socially liberal as SF, NYC, etc.

Surely Chicago is not the only place were voters buck the stereotypes. What city had the most socially liberal Republicans AND the most socially conservative Democrats?
There's tons of Blue Dog Dems in Oklahoma, and the South-Central in particular. I'm one.

I'm what you might call a "Super Blue" as I want all abortion abolished. I'm under the firm conviction that countries that have a low view of life/well-being of other humans tend to fall. History seems to support this notion.

There's also a lot of socially conservative Democrats in the suburbs of Seattle.
EDIT:
Guess I quoted the wrong post. The following comment is in regards to what Conservative Dems think of O'Bammer...

We don't like him. We were sold a bill of goods under the "moderate" guise.

Wisconsin has some socially conservative Democrats(Catholic,pro-gun,anti-abortion). Mostly in rural areas or in the Fox Valley around Green Bay.

I should be a republican, even though I am a liberal. But the current state of the GOP leaves me no other choice to be an independent that votes democratic.

This was true a few years ago, but today most of them have become Republicans.

Most of them vote Republican now, but that doesn't mean they are.

IIRC there are still over twice as many registered Democrats as Republicans in Oklahoma for example.

Did you hear about the latest closeted Republican politician who was using a gay app to find a hot bottom?
N.D. legislator who voted against gay rights bill caught sending pics on Grindr - The Washington Post

Right you are!

And Oklahoma was the only State in the Union that didn't have one county go for O'Bammer.

We Okies love being non-conformists and messin' up that status quo.
