Well that was one heck of a nomination process for the Republican Party. Never in my life time have I see anything like it — given that’s a relatively short lifetime, but who’s counting?
And now that we’re headed towards the big November election, we wanted to get a better sense of what parts of Georgia would be the most likely to back Donald Trump.
Specifically, which cities have the highest number of conservative voters in the Peach State?
In order to do so, we turned our sites on measuring how each city in Georgia with populations greater than 5,000 voted in 2012. The cities with the highest percentage of voters who voted republican in 2012 were crowned the most conservative cities in the state:

- Braselton (Photos)
- Cumming (Photos)
- Dahlonega (Photos)
- Calhoun (Photos)
- Holly Springs (Photos)
- Canton (Photos)
- Woodstock (Photos)
If you’re wondering, Forest Park is the most liberal city in Georgia of all those we measured.
And to be clear, we didn’t form this list based on our own biases — we relied on the cold hard data. For more on how we ran the numbers, keep on reading. Then we’ll take a closer look at each of our top 10 most conservative cities in Georgia.
How we determined the most Conservative cities in Georgia
We started by making a list of every place in Georgia over 5,000 people based on the 2014 American Community Survey that aren’t ‘CDPs’. That left us with more than 121 places in Georgia.
We then measured the voting record and census data to determine which cities lean the most rightwing in their allegiances. Basically, what percentage of a city voted conservative in the 2012 elecetion?
Next, we ranked each city from 1 to 121, and the winner is ‘The Most Conservative City in Georgia.’
