Honestly, Middle Ground cities seem to be more diverse and aware when it comes to actual socialistic issues.
New Orleans is a truly liberal city within the city itself. The suburbs are conservative for the most part. The New Orleans and Baton Rouge suburbs are moderate conservative IMHO but to a California liberal they would be right wing I suppose.

No they're not. Granted I'd say they're both pretty liberal but nowhere near the most in the nation. Not in a nation where Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Austin and New York exist. Miami's liberalism isn't the kind you find in Berkeley, that's for sure. In fact, its not a very politically active city. The most politically vocal group are Cubans which often vote republican anyway.
