This is probably correct, but not for the "obvious" reasons.

The inference above is that because W leaves no male heirs, it's over.

But the real reason is that the original Bush blood keeps getting thinner with every generation. Preston...George H.W....George W...judge for yourself.

You mean places like New York, San Francisco, Boston and their respective metropolitan areas?

Not many liberals there.

Not around here. In the Twin Cities, the highest income city neighborhoods are overwhelmingly Democratic, along with the lowest income neighborhoods. Working class neighborhoods in the city are mixed. In the burbs, the reddest neighborhoods are in the northern and western working class suburbs. The middle and upper class suburbs are generally mixed.

To get back to the original question, I was going to say Southern states, but after getting to know what kind of person Alaskans would elect as their governor, I'd have to add Alaska to the list.

Here in San Diego, areas that have the most Democratic votes actually come from the rich coastal areas (such as Del Mar and La Jolla) (about 3-2 Republican), the poor and middle class areas are military communities (such as Oceanside and El Cajon) and vote almost universally Republican (ranges from 2-1 to 10-1 Republican). Of the cities in San Diego county, La Jolla is the most liberal (~50% conservative) and Oceanside is the most conservative (~100% conservative).

The panhandle is very right leaning (in a bad way), then through the middle of the peninsula it's socially liberal/fiscally conservative then the SE Coast where a third of the population lives it's very liberal. The SW Coast is very conservative, as in fiscally. It's definitely not the "worst" state for liberals, it's actually very moderate, does anyone remember the 2000 election that we screwed up and the results? It was screwed up because the vote was so close.
as a fellow Floridian I have to agree with Compelled. Florida is more of a moderate state when it comes to cultural issues and as for Jeb Bush he was seen as a pragmatic business man more than anything else even though I disagreed with him on almost every issue.

The panhandle I consider lower Alabama so it's not like the rest of the state when we are talking Liberal ideology. The state is actually very diverse and would compare it more to California than Texas which is a state you would have to shoot me to live in! (sorry Texans!)

I'm from South Carolina and it's conservative.

I don't like when someone says "I hate The South" when talking about politics because some people think they are just talking about the general people. There is such a thing as a proud Southerner who votes blue(hard to find though lol). Make it easier and say "I hate Republicans." lol

What and where is Westminster Business? I've never heard of it.
