I do not agree with Overland Park, KS being on the list. It is quite moderate politically overall. The far right conservative Republicans are usually found in cities in Johnson County Kansas like Olathe and Gardner where the housing values are MUCH LOWER. Many of the conservative Republicans live in large cheaply priced cookie cutter houses because the average family size tends to be large. Overland Park is a city FULL of transplants from all over the country. It is no more conservative or liberal compared with any other city in the country. Overall, I think it is extremely moderate politically and the city tends to vote for the best candidate that represents their ideals. However, the major split is between the conservative Republicans and moderate Republicans. Overland Park has many moderate Republicans. These moderates tend to be fiscally conservative and more socially liberal. Many of the moderates would lean toward libertarian ideas and thinking.

Go figure they're liberal...."WORK" is definitely a four-letter word in those places.
Hold on a second here...gang and drug-infested? That's an unfair stereotype. Gangs and drugs are limited to isolated pockets in St. Louis, namely North City. That's the only place where a significant amount of crime occurson the Missouri side. On the Illinois side, in St. Clair County, East St. Louis is more like Gary, Indiana. All of these cities as metro are far less gang and drug infested than the vast majority of other cities. And they are not among the most murderous cities either, at least St. Louis isn't. Detroit has more murders than St. Louis, I believe it is the second-most murderous city behind New Orleans.

Default Knoxville, TN

How is Knoxville, TN not on there?

Conservative Evangelical Stats

  • Republican: Over 62%
  • Religious: Over 62%
  • Non-Catholic Christians of the Religious Group: Over 94%

Metropolitan Stats
As of 2008 one of Forbes Magazine's Top 10 Metropolitan Hotspots

Combined Statistical Population of around 1.03 Million People

With one of the Top 20 Music Scenes in America (Blender Magazine)

Home to a Top 40 University (US News & World Report)

Home to the Most Winning University Sports Program in the United States (ESPN)

Home to Regal Entertainment Group's Headquarters (Regal Cinemas)

Home to Pilot Corp. Headquarters ($16 Billion per year American Oil Corporation)

Home to Clayton Homes Headquarters (Berkshire Hathaway's Multi-Billion Dollar Modular Home Division)

Home to Scripps Networks Headquarters (HGTV, Food Network, GAC, DIY)


Not only does Knoxville belong on that list, but it is also by far the best candidate for Evangelical Christian Republican Metropolitan City on the entire East Coast.

I'm surprised Cincinnati isn't higher. Southwestern Ohio is a very conservative area, right at the tip of the Bible belt. Traditionally, it votes
republican, although not this year. Even though the city went democrat this time, some of the surrounding counties, which feed into Cincinnati economically, are quite solidly republican.

If we're talking religiously conservative, this area fits that qualification as well. There are many large evangelical churches in the area from Baptist, Pentecostal, church of Christ, church of God, and non-denominational. That's not even taking into account the mainline denominations, many of which have an evangelical bent to them in this area. There is more than one Christian university in the area and it is not uncommon to see people saying grace in restaurants.

Cincinnati is a large city, so, of course, there are many, many people who don't fit into this mold, but on the whole, it is a conservative area with a strong evangelical base.

I'm surprised that Atlanta isn't one of the highest.

Atlanta, Dallas, Charlotte, Nashville, and Birmingham are all areas with lots of evangelicals.

North Fulton and West Gwinnett are republicans but have large northern transplants. There are many Jews, Catholics live in those areas. They are more Fiscal conservative rather than religious conservative. Whole foods and Trader's Joe are very popular in those areas.
Henry County is not strongly democratic. It's now a toss-up and was strongly Republican until the large scale migration of blacks to the county.

Clayton is democrat but not liberal. This is due to its large black population.
Most areas of the city of Atlanta that are predominately black and vote democrat are not liberal.

Areas of metro Atlanta that are both conservative and that have a large evangelical population:

East Cobb county
Northwest Cobb county
Bartow County
Cherokee County
Forsyth County
Hall County
North Fulton (yes, North Fulton....lots of evangelicals)
North & East Gwinnett county
Coweta County
Paulding County
Newton County
Fayette County (Fayetteville)
Walton County
