    All the cities on that list make sense except for Miami, I thought Miami had a expensive cost of living, alot of people with money and a booming night life?

    Interesting - Many of these voters also voted for Obama

    Most of these welfare recipients have figured out they can vote theirselves money

    Cut of New England and the west coast and things really start to look up. Why don't they get it.

    South beach, yes. There are many poor areas outside the city that are made up of Cubans and Jamaicans

    Um...with exception to Miami...all of these cities were heavily industrial in America pre-financial corruption.
    That is it. You can try and say republican/democrat - whatever. :eusa_hand:
    The only commonality that matters is that these areas were once manufacturing hubs.

    And there are cities in Ohio, Missouri, Texas and Florida that went Republican in the last presidential election.

    The notion of tying poverty to Democratic leadership is pretty damn lame. Especially when you look at the list Mr. Clean provided.

    Now rank them in accordance to local inflation and the REAL value of the dollar. You will find that your red state theory is correct in nominal terms only.
