Houston is neither. This city is diverse - in all respects.

Yes, Houston went Obama and looked bluish - but we really are more purple.

I wouldn't have known to do so otherwise. Unfortunately, neither option you gave fits my perception very well.

Then again I have never had a discussion with the city regarding its political leanings, so what do I know?

It's really neither Liberal or Conservative; it's moderate.

Are you talking about the City of Houston or the entire Houston metro area? I would think that inside the city limits you would be close to 50/50 lib/con but as you get out to the outlying areas it would get more conservative.
