The immediate city of Houston is blue (as are the very high majority of cities in the US), but the further away you get from the center of the city, the more conservative it gets.

Fiscally conservative, socially liberal sums it up.

A friend of mine at work is from a fairly liberal portion of Washington state. He has concluded, after living a 18 months in Houston, that a Houston "liberal" would be considered a "conservative" in his home state.

Even the traditionally poor neighborhoods that vote Democratic suck down the welfare would be appalled at how "left" his portion of Washington state was.

There was a time when the only difference between liberals and conservatives in Texas was that liberals thought minorities should have the right to vote.
