Yeah I was going to ask that.

My home state of Michigan has areas that are strongly liberal and areas that are strongly conservative, but I wouldn't say that they constitute a significant proportion of the state's population.

You are right, but there's activist "save the three-toed salamander" and then there's "we've voted democrat for generations. The former is Austin/Portland, the latter is CC and RGV.

New Mexico has liberal places like Santa Fe/Taos and conservative areas like Alamogordo,Ruidoso,Carlsbad,Hobbs,Artesia and Roswell.I am not for sure how liberal ABQ and Cruces are but they would certainly be more liberal than Little Texas.

Metro Atlanta...has a lot of contrasts. At one point not too long ago, the congressional districts of Newt Gingrich, John Lewis, Cynthia McKinney, and Bob Barr all bordered each other.

The districts were inner-to-mid metro.

I don't think people understand was is meant by ultra liberal or conservative. Wouldn't ultra be extreme, so 80/20 or even 90/10 ratio. Someone mentioned NY here, yet not a single county there went red by 80/20, same situation with California. Most of the states here are just moderately red in some parts, and moderately blue in others.

What about Minnesota? It seems any district that would send Michelle Bachmann to Congress would be pretty far right-leaning. The suburbs of Milwaukee are also pretty staunchly conservative, so perhaps Wisconsin belongs in the discussion as well.

Many, many states have this dynamic: red states, blue states and purple states alike.
