Hee haw. It’s time for our next most conservative city in America. We don’t have to go too far. In fact, I’m foreshadowing when I tell you we’re only leaving this general area of the country two more times.

Here in Oklahoma City, it’s about 52% conservative here. Trump took about 56% of the vote in Oklahoma County in the latest presidential election. But Bush carried 74% of the vote in 2000. So it’s far less conservative than it once was, as more liberals flock into the state’s capital. But look at those pretty shades of red…

Of course, Oklahoma City is rich in cowboy culture, and the area is awash in oil and gas money, something that keeps the unemployment rate low and ensures it’s the most recession proof city in America.

Tulsa, OK

Alrighty then, who is our second most conservative city in America? That would Be Tulsa, Oklahoma. The second-largest city in Oklahoma, Tulsa was known as “the oil capital of the world” for most of the 20th century.

However, sadly, Tulsa is becoming less conservative. Tulsa County supported Bush at a 74% rate in 2000, but Trump only got 58% of the vote here in the latest election.

What are they putting in the water in Tulsa? Snowflakes and butterflies?

However, as you can see from this map, Oklahoma ain’t goin anywhere when it comes to its own shade of red.

Fun fact: There’s a place called Woodward Oklahoma that’s basically 90% conservative. I’ll bet they’re a real delight over supper.

Review Of Lubbock by HomeSnacks User

Lubbock Texas is a small West Texas city that is flat and dusty. The university Texas Tech is there along with a large medical center. There is the depot district in downtown Lubbock that hosts many bars and places to eat. Lubbock is a large cotton growing region.

The good about Lubbock is it is one of the most friendly places is America. Everybody loves to talk and wave on a lonesome road. The bad is there is a very limited amount of activities and fun things to do in this city.

Review Of Wichita by HomeSnacks User

As someone from Wichita KS I call BS. Most of the towns you have on here are tiny and don’t have much to do. Kansas City KS is a small portion of KC. It goes into Missouri and there is a TON to do there!

As for Wichita, sure there is crime but not as much as they are saying. Wichita has small pockets of bad neighborhoods but what city doesn’t.

Wichita has a thriving art and music scene. Always something to do here!

Okay so our last stop before we head back down to the south central US for good brings us to our 4th most conservative city in America – Fort Wayne Indiana. Here in this I still care about values and keeping America great’ part of the midwest, conservatives rock the conservative vote to the tune of 57%.

However, George Bush 2 had 72% of the vote back in 2000. So is Fort Wayne becoming less conservative or was Al Gore just a big jerk?

Our next stop along our R train in America stops in the only other state where republicans don’t have a stronghold from our list today. We’re stopping in Colorado, and in particular, Colorado Springs.

Colorado Springs is one of the largest hubs of Evangelical Christianity on Earth. This, in addition to the extreme military presence, makes Colorado Springs a stronghold for conservative and traditional thinkers.

Now, Colorado Springs has a much higher conservative population than many of the other cities we’ll talk about – at 57%. However, Colorado Springs has been leaning very heavily left of late, so we ranked it much lower than many other cities for this video.

Check this out. In 2000, Bush crushed the general Colorado Springs metro area with 72% of the vote. But only 16 years later, Trump barely won the county with 47% of the vote. That’s a huge difference. Colorado is also the only state we’ll mention for this report that Hillary Clinton took in 2016.

It’s pretty obvious that the very left city of Denver is impacting the voting patterns nearby.

Review Of Colorado Springs by HomeSnacks User

I love Colorado Springs. My son and his family live there and I visit four times each year. I don’t like winter, but in the summer we can hike and visit the zoos. Their neighborhood is at the bottom of a mountain, so there is plenty of wildlife.

I love the Garden of the Gods. And I kissed a giraffe at the zoo! Both so much fun.

We’re going to round up our most conservative cities in America tour with three more cities all in the same general area. Our first stop is Fort Worth Texas, population 880,000.

Here in Fort Worth, it’s 58% conservative. That’s a lot for a large city. In 2016 nearly 6 in 10 voted for Trump. Back in 2000, nearly 80% voted for Bush. But that’s understandable since he’s from Texas and they love Bush in Texas so much.

Fort Worth, and the surrounding Tarrant County, eek conservatism. I mean this is home to Texas Christian University. Two of those words put the R in right. Fort Worth is the “5th Most Bible-Minded Large City” and over 46 percent of residents identify as “highly religious” The city’s famed Fort Worth Stockyards are an example of the locals pride in its western heritage, as well as its cowboy and cowgirl past.

Review Of Fort Worth by HomeSnacks User

Low crime. Great schools with great teachers who get paid well. Plenty of things to do whether it’s night life or family oriented. Cost of living is great.

Restaurants. Lots of great places to eat. Also a lot of places to shop.
