La Cuidad Que Progresa

The City of Progress, that's Hialeah, Florida's moniker. It was also named as the fourth most conservative city in the United States, according to a voting research group in San Francisco. It ranked just below Provo, Utah, and Lubbock and Abilene, Texas.

Hialeah has also been noted as the city with the most Cubans north of Havana, estimated to be about 80-90% of the population.

Any guesses as to the most liberal U.S. cities?

Detroit, Gary, Indiana, and Berkeley, Calif.

It's interesting to note that no Florida cities made the top 50 most liberal cities. Tallahassee and Ft. Lauderdale were the closest at 65th and 86th, respectively. Miami didn't make the top 100, a sign of its diverse political environment.

Miami's neither strongly conservative or liberal. Who would have thought?

And Hialeah's Mayor is a DEMOCRAT!

Not only a Democrat, a flaming Bush-hater. Go figure...
