kinda what I though. Example ,watermen of the Bay.You have the fishermen of the Chesapeake Bay and along the Coast off of Ocean City for example ,to me they all act the same and talk the same regardless if they are from the Eastern Shore or Calvert County ,St.Mary's or Charles.Same with the farmers around the state.Come to Saint Mary's county for a whole bunch of interesting but different personalities.Want Upper Crest go over to Leonardtown and Brenton Bay ,hard working average man be it water or farm they are everywhere ,History...St,Mary's City ,education College of St, Mary's. and if you want "character"...hit the "7th district".....it's a part of Maryland with it's own dialect...DeeebyGowd!!( or D-by -God).Did you know 10oz Budweiser cans were made first for St.Mary's county ONLY".Go to Mechanicsville or Charlotte Hall to see some Amish on the roads everyday.Charles and Calvert to me are very much alike,turning into Washington suburbs but still have enough old time "tobacco farm" people around to give them some of that "good old days" feeling.JMO.

Honestly can say that in the 30 plus years of living in Maryland there is good and bad in all the counties.The funny thing is there is a little bit of what has been described is in all of the counties.Agree some maybe more than others.WestsideBoy says Garret county for being conservative but I'll bet he has never been to the 7th District ...The OP said they weren't interested in "political numbers",I assume he is looking for the different personalities of each county and as I have expressed there is a little of all in every county in MD.I do think that Ih77 and westsideboy are responding to get a rise but as for their actual knowledge of all the counties in MD it does seem lacking.
No, not this time. IH77 ticks me off and I have zero tolerance when I am forced to see his "slave house negro hillbilly white trash mannerisms and gesticulations from a backward ante-bellum ignorant culture !!" drivel, I will respond. Dude is a troll, IMO, sorry if that distracted from my comments on the topic.

Yeah, I propose Garrett County (two Rs, two Ts.) as the most conservative county in Maryland. Suggesting parts of Southern Maryland are surely valid as well. I am not very familiar with that part of the state personally. I don't think OP will mind different areas of the state being offered up and described for comparison. There is no firm right or wrong answer.

Yes, that is what I was looking for. I am not in this forum too much, so I don't know the history of certain member's opinions. And being somewhat new to CD, I know there are a lot of strongly opined people....

I was curious. As I said, I don't always think the stats tell the whole story.

My own impressions, as one who lives in Central Maryland but has occasion to travel to other parts of the state (excepting the Eastern Shore) on a fairly regular basis:

Most conservative: Garrett County
Runners-up (in order): Carroll County, Allegany County, Washington County, Frederick County

Most liberal: Montgomery County
Runners-up (in order): Prince George's County, Baltimore City


Lean conservative: Calvert County, Harford County, Cecil County

Middle of the road: Baltimore County, Charles County, St. Mary's County

Lean liberal: Anne Arundel County, Howard County
(The corridor where Route 100 slices through these counties strikes me as being, in general, more conservative than these counties as a whole.)


Again, I'm not on the Eastern Shore enough to have a real opinion of them. I tend to associate them as being conservative (after all, Maryland's only Republican congressman represents the Eastern Shore) but I don't really know for sure.

The Eastern Shore is big.. It is more 50/50 when it comes to Conservative and Liberal. I grew up in Wicomico (the most populated county). It was more liberal. The Mayor and County Exec have been liberal for years.

Living in Anne Arundel county, I find it to be close to a 50/50 mix.

I think you may be confusing liberal with Democrat. Those rural Democrats who still survive in office tend to be much more conservative than those in the I95 corridor. In fact, some are more conservative than their Republican colleagues.
