Whats a good area without Democrats and Riots? We want out of NY and love the areas near Strasburg, Hershey, New Holland etc. Trying to get away from the disaster that is Liberal run cities. Thanks

From the map linked below, it appears that Lebanon, Adams, Perry, York, Franklin, Snyder, Union and Tioga Counties have the highest percentages of registered Republicans.

Hershey is really nice. Also I would suggest Manheim Township, which is a suburb of Lancaster city. People are certainly more on the conservative side, and super friendly and accepting of everyone. Many NY/NJ people as well as good diversity here as well. It's really nice here, and I'm originally from North Jersey.

The areas that are growing and have amenities are all trending liberal. Manheim Township just elected Democratic commissions for the first time in decades. If you want a Republican area near Harrisburg, try Perry County.

You can say it's "trending" however the majority in Lancaster county is still very conservative with the exception of Lancaster city.

True, but times are changing, just a bit more slowly in the county. New Dem. registrations run about 4-1 over republican in the area, and within the last year or two, in one of the highly regarded school districts, north of the city, can't remember which one, voters tossed out the republican school board for the first time.
I'm a lib. and a county resident. The one big difference here, that you wont' find in some other places with a strong conservative lean, is that the majority of folks tend to be a lot more dignified. Not a lot of loud, tasteless garbage evident in either behavior or display here. There is some, but I spend my winters in rural Florida, and LC has a tiny fraction of the trashy people, and garbage political behavior you see there. That is my CULTURAL observation, and no reflection on anybody's political beliefs, that I couldn't care less about.

To Answer the OP, most communities in Lancaster county will have a healthy majority of quiet conservatives that view things from a religious perspective. The county is famously insular, so don't expect much more than a superficial welcome from the true natives, unless you join their church, then you are good to go. This isn't a joke, when we moved to our little town there were everything from covert, to brazen attempts to get us in the pews of a few local churches. I'm sure that "Jake in China" has plenty of warm interactions with folks in his neighborhood, but remember the trophy areas north of the city, Lititz, Manheim Twsp. etc.. are favorite areas for the transplants to head, when they want, or have to relocate to, when moving to the region. These folks tend to be a lot more worldly, and outgoing. There are true, "born in Lancaster general, like all of my forefathers before me" folks, who are polite and pleasant to a fault, but will never even thing of socializing with somebody who didn't at least graduate from the local high school, and is preferably a true native.

Pennsylvania is not really a conservative state. Our Governor is a Democrat. FYI. Who won by double digits.

It has pockets of dark red. Most of the state is purple. And most of the desirable areas are definitely more blue. Hershey is Democratic. As is Camp Hill. Manheim Twp. is also Democrat by Lancaster as is Lancaster city.

I would suggest looking to move to another state. tbh

You are more likely to be harmed in a car accident than by a riot. Which there really have not been that many in Pennslyvania's blue cities. New York and Pennsylvania are more alike than not. So I would honestly suggest moving not here.

I would agree with this post.

I'm in Manheim Township, and you can't really say it's conservative anymore ( I certainly wouldn't call it liberal either) as the transplants from NY/NJ/MD and other areas have changed it to a more moderate area, which I actually like. Too much of one side is really no good IMO.

I wish more areas of the country were more moderate and tolerant of everyone's belief's and ideas. Sadly we continue to be more divided and less tolerant of others.
