A lot of us live in areas that may be considered liberal or conservative. What are the characteristics that makes a city liberal or conservative?

Which cities truly idealize liberal and conservative the most?

I would think that a city with a university presence would be more liberal, overall. I will clarify that not all universities are liberal, but most are.

Not in all cases, but, generally, the higher the percentage of blacks in a city, the more Democrats there are. The higher the percentage of whites in a city, the more Republicans there are.

In general, more educated areas of the country are liberal.

Looking at the election results for the 2016 presidential race might not agree with that. I am not saying this is a clear indication, but it does make for an interesting discussion.

Look at Florida - Clinton won Dade County, Broward County, Orange County, Hillsborough County and Leon county. That would suggest she won Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa and Tallahassee.

Look at Georgia, Clinton won Faulton County, Gwinnett County, Dekalb County and Clayton County. That would suggest she won Atlanta.

I wonder if there are any majority black cities that voted for Republicsn canidates, Donald Trump, Mitt Romney, John McCain, George W Bush, Bob Dole or George H.W. Bush in the last 7 Presidential elections, since 1992?

Huh? Not even close. What Southern city is conservative? Only the rural areas are, it just happens to be that down there more of the population lives out there. On really any election map you can see where the cities and urban counties are as bright blue dots in an overall red state. Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, New Orleans, Memphis, San Antonio... all overwhelminy liberal and democratic.
