You're not wrong, but the banter probably wouldn't have happened had you responded like this initially.

Again Houston is not as blue as Boston, Philly, Chicago, but it's much bluer than Phoenix, SLC, OKC etc.
It may not be in the top 5% but it is still in the some of the bluiest category. Phoenix leaned blue at 49%. SLC went 49% Romney, that's a lean Red. 60% blue is not lean blue it is blue period
I think the confusion is that you are focusing on all US cities in general, whereas Gaylord was focusing specifically on major US cities, particularly the ones listed on the OP.

As far as Hispanic voting trends in Texas, those in the major metros and around the Rio Grande are just as liberal as those elsewhere in the country, if not moreso. The Hispanic conservatives in the state are mainly in the Panhandle/western region bordering eastern NM.

The confusion is in his head. He likes to argue I guess or it's a language issue. This was the third post in this thread, from him:

No question about that.
Houston is moderately/lean liberal the others are all strongly liberal.


He said it himself. I don't understand why people get upset when you say their city isn't as liberal as others.

Ranking them from most conservative to most liberal, I'd venture to guess:

Houston
Philadelphia
LA
Chicago
New York
Boston
DC
Seattle
San Francisco

If we are using the word "conservative" in a way other than "votes republican" I would suggest Boston is pretty conservative, from a lifestyle point of view.

I would place Chicago 2nd on this list after Houston.

True, Boston is pretty conservative in the way you describe. Maybe 2nd or 3rd on this list between it and Chicago.

This is very true.

Far left politically, fairly conservative in many other ways.

Why do you consider Chicago to be the most conservative out of these (besides Houston) both politically and non-politically?

Considering how all of the other cities you listed were heavy liberal meccas, Houston would be the most conservative, although it is by no means as red as the rest of Texas (rather it leans blue).
