Republican Voters Don’t Like D.C.

Sure, this isn't exactly a newsflash, but it's nice to have actual data to back it up. Public Policy Polling released a study last week evaluating how voters feel about metro areas. Pollsters found that "The biggest partisan gap is unsurprisingly for D.C. Democrats like it by a net 44 points, while Republicans dislike it by 24, for a 68-point gap."

Black voters also like D.C. more than white voters, by 34 points.

Meanwhile, Seattle is super popular but Detroit has to sit by itself in the lunchroom.

    As a DC resident I feel great knowing that Republican voters do not like the city.

    As a D.C. Republican... I love the District!

    As far as polling goes, this seems pretty dumb.

    Maybe it's time to change our license plate slogan from "Taxation Without Representation" to "He Hate Me."

    As a Republican and DC resident, I love living here and enjoy the area's many cultural opportunities, museums, events, concerts, etc. What I don't like is seeing in the news about corruption, incompetence and sleeze brought upon our fine city by our Democratic mayor and Democratic council. If you Dems want a specific source of Democratic sleeze and corruption, read this paper or the Post on any given day.
