Top Lefty-Friendly Counties Surprise: San Francisco tops list By Will McCahill, Newser Staff Posted Apr 10, 2010 5:50 AM CDT 53 comments Comments Boulder County is home to the University of Colorado. (University of Colorado) (Newser) – After compiling its list of the most conservative-friendly counties in the US, the right-leaning Daily Caller now brings it with the top counties for liberals: San Francisco. With liberals, unions and gays, “surprise, surprise,” Chris Palko writes. Montgomery County, Md. This DC suburb is rich, educated, and home to “the bureaucrats conservatives despise.” Marin County, Calif. Just over the Golden Gate from San Francisco, Marin has the country’s highest BMW concentration, and “environmentalism could be viewed as the county’s religion.” Boulder County, Colo. Home to the University of Colorado and pretty well-off, “it’s quite an honor to be the best university-based setting for liberals.” New York County, NY. Home to Manhattan and ever more gentrified, this county voted 85% for Barack Obama. For the rest of the top 20, check the link at right.
