A recent study done by Crowdpac examined the political views of every single city or town in the United States. They developed a tool that lets anyone see where their hometown ranks on the scale of most to least liberal or conservative.
Five of the most conservative cities or towns are in Texas. Hereford, Princeton, Monahans, Dalhart, and Childress made the top ten, respectively. Outside of Texas, Appling, Georgia; Cripple Creek, Colorado; Orange City, Iowa; Sumiton, Alabama; and Eagle Mountain, Utah, were also in the top ten.
