Gary, Indiana-a very Black steel city in a pretty conservative state, but is close to Chicago and might be more affiliated with that area.

East St. Louis, Illinois-similar to the Gary info., but switch Chicago with St. Louis

Miami and Louisville come to mind too.
I think Tuesday disproved your first two statements

Huh? The rest of Nevada is a desert, too. If anything, Carson City is unlike the rest of Nevada since it's in the one little corner of the state that isn't desert.

Huntsville, a fairly new city full of rocket scientists, engineers, and excellent schools, is nothing like the rest of Alabama.

yea but thats true of pretty much any large city surrounded by rural/southern areas that has some ability to attract northerners.


and those statistics are pretty much made up, estimates i guess. the rest of the state is nowhere near 90 percent republican. mccain got 55 percent of the vote for the whole state. louisville is about 15 percent of the total population. those numbers just dont add up to 90 percent.

also your statistics on the rest of the states whiteness are exaggerated as well, although not to the same extent as the republican thing, where i expect your about 30 percent off.

white percentage by congressional district:
Ky district 1: 90.03 Ky district 2: 91.27 Ky district 3: 74.51 Ky district 4: 94.35 Ky district 5: 97.21 Ky district 6: 86.90

I would agree, another example would be Philadelphia - The rest of the state is Apalachia and a midwestern city in the west

in reality, this can be said for most cities that are surrounded by country areas.

I've read that Ruidoso, NM is made up mostly of Texans, as opposed to much of the rest of the state.

Asheville, North Carolina - State has some pretty liberal places, but apparently this one has a reputation for being "different" for Western North Carolina.

Lawrence, Kansas - Liberal college town in a mostly Republican state.

Lexington, Nebraska - Maybe it's too small to be a city, but it's a bit unusual for being a majority Hispanic town in Nebraska.

Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa - Quite small but it has the word "city" in its name. A Transcendental Meditation place in Iowa.

Waukesha, Wisconsin - Traditionally conservative small city in a generally liberal state. It also has an Episcopalian monastery.
