California's Most Conservative and Liberal Cities

The Sacramento Bee lists California's most conservative and liberal cities according to voter registration figures. Berkeley and Inglewood are the top two liberal cities. Yorba Linda and Newport Beach have the highest Republican ratio. I suppose it should be no surprise that no cities in Mendocino, Humboldt or Del Norte counties are included, although they do list Redding.

I was wondering that myself and would like to know what the Bee's criteria was for selecting the cities they did. Population perhaps?

I believe I saw somewhere they were looking at California's "largest" cities, so that's probably it. Still, you'd think they could have thrown in at least one city from the farther places in the state's Northwest. Then again, I guess we're "up around San Francisco", aren't we?

But if they sampled Arcata, you'd complain they didn't sample Eureka, and wham bam, they're be back to sampling every single city.

I don't know about that. I believe both Arcata and Eureka are heavy in Democrats. It would have just been nice to see one city or town up here included.
