Bruh, I'm not relying on statistics either. I'm relying on my experience on Waco as well. I'll take you to DC, Chicago, Austin, Inner Loop of Houston, Inner loop 12 of Dallas, Alexandria, Virginia, St. Louis. These are liberal cities. Waco is not nearly as liberal compared to these cities. Maybe it is to cities compared to the rest of Central Texas. But you will hardly find anyone that lives in a liberal city believe that Waco is liberal.

I think the worst is actually the red sections of California. Places like the southern most parts of the Central Valley and San Diego county are more to the right than just about anywhere in Texas or Virginia. If you look online, even the reddest of states have exceptions. But try looking up people from San Diego which has more people than many states, you won't find any liberal minded people from here, other than moderates or libertarians. The most conservative city in the country is easily Oceanside, I don't think any city with at least a 10,000 people is more one sided. San Diego county is very one sided politically, all the political activity is on the right and the only ones who ever argue against them come from other parts of the state such as Los Angeles or even center-right Orange County. I am not as knowledgeable on the valley, but I have heard quite a lot about it.

Utah. An absolute nightmare if you are a liberal. I should know since I am one.

Yeah, I thought I was an extreme liberal because I thought California was more conservative for my taste than I expected. But then again I was in San Diego so that's probably why. That city makes Atlanta look liberal by comparison. Actually, Atlanta is a liberal city even though Georgia is a conservative state.

But the Atlanta Metro is a mixed bag. Suburban white areas are conservative, whereas suburban black areas vote liberal (even though the people who vote may not be liberally-minded). Overall, the metro is slightly more conservative than liberal. If we're talking about the white population, it is overwhelmingly conservative.

The best areas for liberals are inner cities, high minority areas, indian reservations, our national borders, and college campuses.

The worst areas for liberals are areas of multi-generational American, hard working, successful, independent people.

I would say that where liberals are concerned, anyplace in the Deep South (specifically Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina) is going to be where liberals face the largest struggles.
