I already live in a liberal state but personally I lean conservative.

It has been hard to watch our loony liberal elected do stupid things again and again.
Right now we have the moonbat Elizabeth Warren making speeches and being outraged as usual.
I know many people who absolutely love her.
I do not get it.

Conservative cities in liberal states are usually rural. Liberal cities in conservative states are few and far between. Orlando, Tampa, Miami, Atlanta, and Austin are the only ones I can think of.

Some of the most prosperous and fast growing cities in the nation are liberal, but in red states. More conservative states tend to have lower taxes and fewer obstacles to business development and growth. More liberal cities tend to have an advantage in community amenities (cultural, arts, dining, etc.) and are more open to newcomers and non-conformists. Here in the Southeast, Atlanta is such a place, as is Nashville, Louisville and pretty much all the major North Carolina cities.

I can't think of too many examples of conservative areas in liberal states that are especially popular and strong economically. Maybe Colorado Springs (although the state is pretty moderate) would qualify.

For me, conservative or liberal is less of an issue as libertarian or not. So I would hate to live in a conservative or liberal state that was anti-libertarian. So far, my state of Washington I consider to be liberal and leaning libertarian so I have no problem with that. My 1st preference would be Arizona which is conservative libertarian.

She has I think gotten over the times repetitive and scripted and less from the heart. So I know why the hate is there. But her policy positions are very very tough on big businesses and supports helping the less fortunate in life. The essential core of being a progressive and she has that nailed down. Sanders and Warren are the progressive wing rockstars in the Senate at the moment.

...and that is scary if those 2 are the cream of the crop in the Democrat party.

In my experience, the ones who are unhappiest tend to be conservatives who live in a liberal state (whether the city is liberal or conservative). Don't know why they put up with it; I'd move if that unhappy. I've only lived in liberal states but did live in conservative cities a few times. State policy trumps all so the policy of the city didn't make a difference to me.

I just moved from a moderate area (fiscally liberal, morally conservative) to a conservative area in a very liberal state.

Honestly? It's a nice place to live. Of course, we will watch the state implode in the near future.
