How we determined the most liberal cities in Hawaii for 2023
To find the most liberal places in Hawaii, we used Saturday Night Science – the argument you’d make at a bar – to find the cities with the most liberals.
We started by making a list of every city in Hawaii over 2,000 people based on the 2017-2021 American Community Survey. That left us with 95 cities and towns.
- Percentage Of Votes For Democratic President In 2020
Because no voting data exists at the city level, we used county-level election results from the 2020 election. We assigned every city in a county the percentage of votes that went to the Democrats, effectively extending the county’s results to the city level. In cases where larger cities encompassed an entire county, the election outcomes accurately reflected the city’s political landscape.
The winner, Hilo, is “The Most liberal City in Hawaii For 2023”. The most conservative place in Hawaii was Maunawili.
We updated this article for 2023. This report is our tenth time ranking the most liberal places to live in Hawaii.
