True. I think that study included many/most of the African-American majority cities even though many AAs are moderate to conservative Democrats. It's even true that voting Republican doesn't necessarily make you conservative. The Pacific Coast still has a fair amount of moderate Republicans. I think New England still has some too. So going by voting alone is maybe insufficient.

One study I read determined "liberal" towns by including voting, "gay index", and per-capita money given to progressive political groups. Unfortunately they didn't do a version for conservative. A highly Democratic town that gives a good deal to the NRA, National Right to Life, Focus on the Family, and the Heritage Foundation would likely be fairly conservative.

So my post is to ask if there is anyone out there who is a Republican/Conservative/Right-Wing who is a Big City person. It's a stereotype that conservatism is an ideology of the Middle America/Suburban set, but I would like to hear from fellow conservatives who are also urbanites at heart!

The real question is, how many moderately intelligent conservatives associate themselves with the modern-day, corporation-owned republican party?

I know that's why I said it was a flaw in the rankings.
