Maybe because they base it on El Paso being a blue county. That's my only answer... I haven't spent nearly enough time out there to really tell.

Harder to think of states that don't have any conservative areas or any liberal areas...Maybe some of the plains/inter-mountain west states..... Wyoming, The Dakotas, Nebraska?
States with no conservative areas: Hawaii, Vermont

States with no liberal areas: Oklahoma

The reddest and bluest states right there. Everything else falls in between to some degree.

Im suprised nobody has said Pennsylvania. The entire state is red except the major cities (and they are very blue) of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. A few other counties are blue but 90% are red.

Outside Philly. I wouldn't call any area of Pennsylvania ultra liberal.

That's a bit off. The Miami-Ft Lauderdale-West Palm Beach metro area, Key West-Monroe County, the Tampa-St Petersburg metro area, the Orlando metro area, Gainesville and Tallahassee are all blue and pretty big islands as the three metro areas mentioned are the 8th, 18th and 24th largest metro areas in the country respectively.

East End of Pittsburgh is very liberal, as well as the State College area.

You must not know Pennsylvania well. The reason it's a purple state is because how blue the major cities and college towns are.

The entire state of Massachusetts also goes blue in presidential years although there are apparently enough moderates/independents to elect the odd Scott Brown/Charlie Baker..

The only state that comes to mind is Oregon, which used to lean slightly towards blue due to the heavily blue Portland metro and the heavily red regions east of the Cascades (though the latter region seems to have shifted a little more towards blue recently.)

Any other examples of states like this?
The Mississippi Delta is ultra-liberal because it's majority African American, while the White areas of the state are ultra-conservative, except in our urban areas, which are mixed politically. Not a whole lot of areas for third party candidates, unless you count Southhaven or Olive Branch with 5% each voting third party.

And Charlie is the most popular Governor in the country. Mass is a weird state, It's like a very business friendly blue state.

Not neccessarily true Northern Maine, western Mass and all of New Hampshire are fairly conservative.
