Overall, the liberal tilt of big cities is unmistakable. Even cities with conservative reputations (such as Dallas, Santa Ana, Calif. and Cincinnati) are politically left-of-center, if only slightly.

The most liberal cities include (as expected) San Francisco, Washington D.C., Seattle, Oakland and Boston while the most conservative cities include Mesa, Ariz., Oklahoma City, Virginia Beach and Colorado Springs.
