Hanover County Named 8th Most Conservative Friendly County in the US!

H/T to fellow blogger Rick Sincere

Not too bad! 8th most conservative friendly county in the US.

America’s top 20 conservative-friendly counties

The Daily Caller is ranking the most conservative-friendly counties in America. On Monday, we counted down numbers 81-100. On Tuesday, we looked at numbers 61-80. On Wednesday, we looked at numbers 41-60. On Thursday, we looked at numbers 21- 40. Now it’s time for the final installment: numbers 1-20 (click for slideshow).  The Daily Caller’s Aleks Kulczuga profiled the winning county here.

A quick reminder of our criteria:

  • How counties have voted in the past two presidential elections
  • Median household income, factoring in cost of living
  • Home ownership percentage
  • Married family percentage
  • Civilian veteran percentage
  • State unionization laws, whether a right-to-work state or mandatory union state
  • State tax burden–state income taxes, factoring in available deductions
  • State concealed weapons laws, ease of carrying weapon legally
  • State weekly religious attendance, as measured by Pew
  • State abortion laws, as measured by Americans United for Life
  • Intangibles, such things as a long conservative history, an ingrained military culture, prominent right-wing politicians

A “county” must be a county-level unit, which includes parishes in Louisiana, independent cities in Virginia and boroughs/municipalities in Alaska, and the population must be more than 50,000 as of 2008.

Check back soon for our list of the 100 most liberal-friendly counties in the U.S.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
