How we determined the most liberal cities in Indiana

We started by making a list of every place in Indiana over 5,000 people based on the 2014 American Community Survey that aren’t ‘CDPs’. That left us with more than 117 places in Indiana.

We then measured the voting record and census data to determine which cities lean the most leftward in their allegiances. Basically, what percentage of a city voted liberal in the 2012 elecetion?

Next, we ranked each city from 1 to 117, and the winner is ‘The Most Liberal City in Indiana.’

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