I lived in Atlanta for over 10 year's. Savannah, Augusta, and Athens I have visited and spent time in each city. I stand by my statement Augusta is more liberal compared to Atlanta. If you read this thread you can see Im not the only person who thinks that. Several poster's including the OP agree with me.

Atlanta has one of the largest gay communities in the country... I think that is generally a good barometer to how liberal a city is.. if gay people feel that they can live comfortably there without having to be in the closet. I don't think I would make that statement about Augusta.

Heck even in the south, Raleigh Durham, Miami, Richmond, ect... are much more liberal all around then the Atlanta area!
What? Raleigh, Durham and Richmond????
Much more liberal than Atlanta?

You REALLY need to travel more dude.

Then where are the gays?? Certainly having a sizable gay community shows how liberal a city is.


But hey, if you think Augusta is more "liberal" than Atlanta, then that's your opinion.

Consider the source, who would rather lose his right arm than admit anything positive about Atlanta. This whole thread is ludicrous, BTW.

If you want to gauge how liberal Augusta is try to open a bar downtown and after you get done battling Curtis Baptist Church for the right to do so get back to me.

Yep, Raleigh Durham has Carrboro, Chapel Hill, 5 Points, Cameron Villiage, ect. Metro area went 61% Democrat this last election. Miami very gay friendly and metro area very liberal (61% Democrat this last election). Metro Atlanta was less than 50% this past election (49.2%). My older brother lived in Druid Hills several years and we would frequent that area all the time. Sure places like Virginia Highland, Little 5 Points, Decatur and such are fairly liberal, but you leave those areas and you are in conservative places pretty quickly. Some of the inner neighborhoods may be liberal, but metro Atlanta as a whole is not. And yes I travel a lot (Have been to every state east of the Mississippi as well as California and Arizona)

When you look at the map. You can see Augusta, Columbus, & Macon. Have the chance to form a democratic stronghold in the state. All is left is a few rural counties. Which went very close in 2008. I can hear John king from CNN now in 2012 for the presidency. In front of the digital screen looking at the GA map. If obama is going to when GA. He has do good in the major cities. Atl, Aug, Sav, Col, Mac. But he reallys has to rack up. In what we call the I-14 corridor. Only problem I-14 which connects Aug, Col, Mac probably will not be built by then.
