Crime Rates In Liberal Cities Shockingly Higher Than In Conservative Cities

November 30, 2013

A few years ago, the Bay Area Center For Voting Research listed the most conservative and most liberal cities in the United States.
They did this by looking at how every American city with a population of at least 100,000 voted in the 2004 presidential election


Cities with more conservative votes than liberal votes are considered conservative cities, and cities with more liberal votes than conservative votes are considered liberal cities. Cities with the highest percentages of conservative votes were deemed the most conservative cities, and cities with the highest percentages of liberal votes were deemed the most liberal cities. Simple enough.

The 15 most conservative and 15 most liberal cities are listed below, along with their violent crime rates

The 15 most liberal cities in the US:

– Detroit, Michigan – 24 violent crimes/1,000 residents
– Gary, Indiana – 15 violent crimes/1,000 residents
– Berkeley, California – 5 violent crimes/1,000 residents
– Washington, DC – 13 violent crimes/1,000 residents
– Oakland, California – 16 violent crimes/1,000 residents
