That would be best determined by looking at precincts and not entire counties.

Haha, I was planning to create a thread like this for a long time but I'll go ahead with yours.

Note: Conservative cities might still have a liberal majority or lean "Blue" but they're more conservative than other major cities.

Liberal Cities: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, NYC, Boston, DC, Portland, Seattle, Las Vegas, Denver, Minneapolis

Moderate Cities: Austin, Sacramento, Dallas, Albuquerque, Phoenix, St. Louis, Atlanta, Nashville, Miami, Houston, New Orleans, Kansas City, Omaha

Conservative Cities: Fort Worth, Anaheim/OC, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Boise, Spokane, Midland/Odessa, Bakersfield, Riverside/SB/IE, Lubbock, Amarillo, Fresno

Oklahoma City and Tulsa are really the only sizable cities that are actually conservative.

A lot of cities like Dallas, Houston, SLC, San Antonio, etc are stereotyped for being conservative but in reality they aren't. They are more middle ground.

Small metro areas (below 500,000 in population) like Amarillo, Midland/Odessa, Waco, etc actually are conservative. However, all of these cities with metro areas over 1 million, with the exception of OKC and Tulsa, are actually middle ground or liberal and are not conservative.

Okay so finally Jacksonville is off the Conservative list, but Salt Lake City? Not at all either as the city has been solidly Democratic with zero GOP Mayors since the 1970s and has decreasingly been influenced by the Mormon presence with supposedly now under 40% of the city's population identifying as LDS members. The city has had an LGBT non-discrimination law in the books since 2009 and has the 7th highest density of LGBT residents of all major cities.

I would classify Boise (city limits) moderate and even teetering on the liberal side, though not as liberal as cities you have in your "liberal" category. Hillary won most of the cities precincts back in November, the city government is Dem, refugees and the LGBT communities are embraced and there is an Anti-Discrimination Ordinance in force. Boise is the little blue island in a red state.

Yeah, I was debating between putting that in either the Conservative or Moderate categories.

I'm using more of a relative scale rather than an absolute one, sorry if it wasn't too clear. On an absolute scale, most of the cities in the "Moderate" list and even some in the Conservative list still preferred Hilary than Trump in the election but definitely not to as great of a degree than the two tiers above it.

I don't see Salt Lake City or Jacksonville being in the same league as SF, NYC, Minneapolis, etc. They may still be blue cities but not as liberal. Salt Lake City might belong in the "Moderate" category after the recent developments though.

So, because they don't measure up to your personal level of "liberalness", it doesn't count?

(You forgot the other cities in points out, btw...)
