How we determined the most conservative cities in America?

We started by making a list of every city in America over 200,000 people based on the 2016 American Community Survey (The most recent data). That left us with 112 big cities.

We then measured the voting record and census data to determine which cities lean the most rightward in their allegiances. Basically, what percentage of a city voted Republican in the 2012 election?

Next, we ranked each city from 1 to 112, and the winner, Lubbock, TX, is “The Most Conservative City in America”
