Out of the most populous metropolitan areas in the country, only two stood out as heavily conservative strongholds in this election by sending Trump to the White House and Republicans back to congress: Fort Worth and Phoenix. Does this surprise you?

Republican Stronghold.

Conservative Fortress.

It hasn't gone blue since Truman (1948). That's deep red and it's my idea of paradise. I'll be moving there in January and it's going to get a whole lot redder once I get there!

Fort Worth is pretty conservative. Except for their stupid superintendent.

Both Fort Worth and Phoenix are very conservative. They haven't gone blue in decades.

True, Fort Worth is filled with liberal Mexicans but a large number of them are illegal.

Phoenix deports them all, so they can't vote illegally even if they wanted to. 😂

I'll be moving to one of them in January. Hooray for the conservative Valley of the Sun!

Not surprised. An old (democratic) friend moved to Phoenix years ago and became a Republican AND born again! She's a completely different person.

Populace cities means more people, fewer jobs, more government benefits etc. They vote democratic, usually.

Not these two. Fort Worth and Phoenix are pro-gun, self reliant, and very conservative.

These are some of my favorite cities too! Conservative cities rock! I'm moving to one of them too.

Not at all. The last time the Phoenix metro area went Democratic was for Harry Truman in 1948. The last time the Forth Worth area went Democratic was for Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
