Does anyone know where the highest concentration of Democrats and/or Liberal-Thinking residents live in Georgia? (No insulting answers, please!) I'm a liberal-type person and am currently living in an extremely conservative part of the state. Just curious if anyone knows if there's a higher concentration of Democrats. Thanks.

Much of Atlanta and surrounding areas of Dekalb and Clayton Counties are heavily black and Democrat. Also urban areas of Macon, Augusta, and Savannah. Check the SOS website for specific county totals, and you can see where the majority was Democrat.

Irishgirl, Clarke County (Athens) is an interesting, lively, and liberal county (home of UGA). I actually live in Barrow County but work in Athens and spend most of my time there and love it! Hope this helps!

No - I'm not leaving my home and county because of the number of Republicans that live here. My husband and I have BOTH lost our jobs this year and are searching for new employment. As we send out our resumes all over the state, I'm just curious as to where there are other residents with like ideals. That's all. I've lived in my current county for 18 years and like it here. If it wasn't for the job losses, we wouldn't be considering a move.

irishgirl123 - You would probably be happy anywhere inside or adjacent to I-285 around Atlanta.

I live in NW DeKalb County. It is a very diverse, healthy and fairly liberal area that is probably about 75%+ Democratic.

Default Oh quit being a booty!

You know exactly what he means. The truth is you can go to Seattle and find some republicans but it will NOT be as many...therefore its like they're not there. You don't even get the feeling that any republicans exist. There' s not a steeple on every corner. Now are there some places like THAT in GA? I think that is what he might have meant...and hell I don't blame him.
