Now that we’re starting up the election swing to decide not only our next President, but many other local statewide initiatives, it’s important to put into context the types of decisions that will be made in the coming years.

Who makes the decisions? Not the people getting elected. It’s the voters.

Specifically, we wanted to know which cities have the highest number of liberal 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 and contributed to political campaigns in the past several years. The cities with the highest percentage of voters who voted Democrat and gave the most to liberals where named the most liberal cities in the state.

If you’re wondering, Bremen is the most conservative 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 liberal cities in Georgia.

How we determined the most liberal cities in Georgia for 2019

We started by making a list of every city in Georgia over 5,000 people based on the 2013-2017 American Community Survey (The most recent data). That left us with 125 cities and towns.

We then measured the voting record and donation data to determine which places lean the most rightward in their allegiances by:

  1. Percentage Of Registered Democrats
  2. # Of Contributions To Democrats Per Capita
  3. $ Amount Contributed To Democrats Per Capita

Next, we ranked each city from 1 to 125 for each of the criteria where number one was the most liberal.

The winner, Riverdale, is “The Most liberal City in Georgia For 2019”.

Let’s go through these liberal places, shall we?
