Ah, no about Philadelphia.

It's been a Democratic city since 1952. And something else conservatives loathe: a sanctuary city.

But yes there are conservatives in the city. However SE PA, which includes the city and four surrounding counties, is the most consistently blue part of PA.

Now Illinois has democratic governor. Hope that makes Chicago less conservative. I honestly didn't know that Philly was conservative at all, being close to NYC, Boston, and DC. Could you please guys shed some lights on that?

I have lived in Texas for nearly 30 years and this is what I've seen too. I also know a lot of very politically conservative Hispanics, many of whom supported Ted Cruz in the recent elections.

In my opinion, Houston is the most conservative of the cities listed.

Yep. I have plenty of Hispanic friends that are against this caravan. And honestly, many that are Trump supporters.

You would still be right without adding that except for Houston but.
Again Houston is conservative as COMPARED to the other cities but Houston consistently votes democratic and this year Beto O Rouke got almost 60% of the vote in Harris county despite Harris having more than 2 million people outside the city.

Look 3 hours west to Austin. 75% for Beto and Austin has less diversity than Houston.

You are not disproving my point.
Again what you are doing to not long as to whether Houston votes conservative or liberal.
I did say it is the most conservative COMPARATIVELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Showing how much Austin voted dies not negate the fact that Beto got almost 60% of the vote in Harris county.

60% democratic is democratic period!!!
Bringing up Austin means nothing

LOL triggered. Listen, all major cities will lean democrat. Most rural areas lean conservative. So Houston is absolutely not among the bluest of the blues. There's nothing uniquely liberal about Houston, especially compared to other US cities and even among it's Texas peers.

51% is lean democratic.
Again I will say it slowly so you will understand what I'm saying. I said Houston is comparatively more conservative but it's not a conservative city i voted almost 60% for the wildly progressive Beto O'Rourke.
Do you need me to break it down for you again cause you keep repeating things that are outside the point I'm making
