    #2 Okla city Ok.
    #9 Tulsa Ok.

    I'm guessing there is a strong correlation with higher average education level and leftist mindset. It's strictly an impression but....Tulsa on average seems more "educated".

    This pains me because I am a big proponent of education. The problem is the lack of free discourse and diversity of opinions in the higher education community. I fear that the average college graduate tends to equate educated with being left of center.

    I'm curious why you say there is a ..."lack of free discourse and diversity of opinions in the higher education community". I am not bashing or necessarily disagreeing with you, but do you have information to support this claim? The way this is stated appears to be factual; yet it is really just an opinion at this point. Please elaborate.

    Agreed, just goes to show that education does not necessarily equate intelligence. I, like others have seen my fair share of educated idiots lately. A great many of them on campus.

    Campusreform.org and thefire.org do a good job of documenting the restrictive environment on campuses. They cover the overt cases. What is also important is the hostile atmosphere towards right of center thought causing students and faculty to keep silent if they do not agree.

    San Francisco is the #1 liberal city. I think Mesa, AZ was the #1 conservative city.
