Forbes has taken info from The Economist and MIT, and created a list of the 'Ten Most Conservative' and 'Ten Most Liberal' Cities in America. One Minnesota city appeared -- on one of the two lists. Any guesses at what city popped up where?

Ok, here we go -- the Top-10 on both sides of the aisle; starting with the Conservatives:

  • #1:    Mesa, Arizona
  • #2:    Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
  • #3:    Virginia Beach, Virginia
  • #4:    Colorado Springs, Colorado
  • #5:    Jacksonville, Florida
  • #6:    Arlington, Texas
  • #7:    Anaheim, California
  • #8:    Omaha, Nebraska
  • #9:    Tulsa, Oklahoma
  • #10:  Aurora, Colorado

And now, the Top-10 Most Liberal Cities:

  • #1:   San Francisco, California
  • #2:   Washington, D.C.
  • #3:   Seattle, Washington
  • #4:   Oakland, California
  • #5:   Boston, Massachusetts
  • #6:   Minneapolis, Minnesota
  • #7:   Detroit, Michigan
  • #8:   New York, New York
  • #9:   Buffalo, New York
  • #10: Baltimore, Maryland

What? Minneapolis is more liberal than New York City? Um, ok.
