In a nonpartisan study released earlier this week, the Bay Area Center for Voting Research ranked the political leanings of every U.S. city. The most conservative city is Provo, Utah. Not much of a shocker. However, Chicago long known for its Democratic leanings is a surprising number 17 on the liberal list. Neighbor Gary, Indiana, ranked right behind the "winner," Detroit, Michigan. Perhaps we need to reinstate the old tradition of "vote early, vote often" to up the statistics before the next survey?
