By Rachael Dottle. The more densely populated the place, the more Democratic the voters. What did the political landscape of the city 1 Includes only urbanized areas with a population ofor more, as defined by the U. Census Bureau. Take it up with the Census Bureau. Part of that process has been accounting for growing levels of urban sprawl and the increasing fuzziness of the lines between suburban and rural areas.
When you expand the definition of urban areas beyond their downtown areas, cities start to look less Democratic and less densely populated. Across the country, Republicans in urban areas are more likely to be found in the less-centralized, lower-density neighborhoods. Describing political polarization as urban vs. This technique is most often used to measure racial segregation, but political scientists have also used it to calculate partisan segregation.
One drawback of this method: A place that votes almost uniformly for one party — Democrat-soaked San Jose, California, for example — will have a low dissimilarity score.
Here are the top The programs, to the extent that they do exist, are yoked to the private sector, which not only has a history steeped in racial discrimination but has made contemporary practices that are connected to that. This is not ancient history. All race data comes from the U. Even in many cities with relatively few Hispanic and nonwhite residents, we see similar patterns of political segregation, with more Republicans in the less-densely populated outer edges of the urban areas and more Democrats in the tightly packed downtowns.
These trends show up even in cities that are over 80 percent white, such as Springfield, Missouri; Boise, Idaho; Spokane, Washington; and Pittsburgh. Researchers have plenty of theories as to why this happens. It is a function of choice, economy, work, lifestyle.
And that geographic polarization may, in turn, be contributing to our political polarization. Comeall these factors are still going to be in play. Over half of these neighborhoods are still primarily nonwhite. Likewise, Americans are unlikely to stop conflating their identity with their politics anytime soon.
If anything, the culture wars of the last few years suggest the opposite.

Colorado Primary election results Dem. Joe Biden Michael Bloomberg Donald Trump Winner Days before the election, even as the outcome of the U. Senate race in Colorado looked all but certain, Katie Farnan refused to believe it.
The mother-turned-activist from Boulder worked for the better part of four years for this moment, all in the hopes of defeating Republican incumbent Cory Gardner. She carried a cutout known as Cardboard Cory to dozens of events and demanded the senator hold a town hall. She became his alter ego on Twitter. Her kids, ages 4 and 6, knew his name. She planned to work until the end to turn out the Democratic vote.
In reality, Farnan had little to worry about. He lost months, if not years, earlier as part of the most cohesive protest campaign in recent memory — the one Farnan helped launch in early that is best known by its mascot Cardboard Cory. He never recovered. The final tally for the election showed he lost by 9 percentage points to Democrat John Hickenlooper. But the Cardboard Cory protests to pressure Gardner played a significant role.
The effort kept liberal-minded activists motivated and it shifted the narrative to put Gardner on the defensive. At important moments, a network of liberal advocacy organizations, Democratic Party allies and major donors activated and guided the Cardboard Cory campaign from behind the scenes, according to more than a dozen interviews and scores of internal strategy documents.
The year-old mother of two who works as a nonprofit adviser said she had been involved in politics in the past. She voted and even volunteered in the election. As she doomscrolled Twitter, Farnan came across a document called the Indivisible guide. The playbook told liberals to replicate tea party tactics that conservatives used to undercut President Barack Obama to now pressure members of Congress in the Trump era.
Plenty of people in the Facebook group expressed interest, but only one joined Farnan on Jan. The two met with a Gardner staffer to talk about the federal health care law and the nomination of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general.
Farnan said she also asked when Gardner would hold a town hall, only to be rebuffed. I think that set it off for us. Farnan posted a photo of the visit to Twitter and tagged the national Indivisible group, which shared it. They planned to host it with or without him. The next one, three days later, boosted the political theater with the addition of a life-size cutout of Gardner taped to a podium in the middle of the Byers Middle School gymnasium in Denver. A crowd of more than a thousand attended, and the cutout became the star of the show.
The criticism missed the point. In August, Gardner finally held three town halls of his own. All took place in a single day, a rip-off-the-Band-Aid response to the criticism.
By then, the anger reached a fever pitch. What the activists wanted from Gardner was impractical. Inhe ran on repealing Obamacare.

So why the silence? Organizationally the pieces are in place for a strong Trump performance, which could pull Sen. Gardner across the finish line. You likely also know how I feel about polls. In Ron Johnson led in one poll and trailed in 29 other polls, often by double digits, to former Sen.

The findings provide more evidence to suggest Colorado is turning blue amid political and demographic shifts, and they offer a forecast for what to expect in and beyond. The intensity of the blue wins in Colorado increased from to in the three districts controlled by Democrats, the analysis found. And in three districts held by Republicans, the margin of victory shrunk over the same time period.
In the 6th Congressional District, this led to the upset of five-term Republican U. Mike Coffman by Democrat Jason Crow.
The outlier is the 5th District based in Colorado Springs. But even Republican incumbent Doug Lamborn saw his huge margin of victory reduced to traditional levels inthe analysis found. The tally of votes in the past three statewide elections — whether for U. Senate, governor or president — suggests that only these seven counties are toss-ups in the future.
All but Larimer and Pueblo are small in terms of population, too. A deeper analysis indicates that five traditional swing counties on the Front Range — Arapahoe, Adams, Broomfield, Jefferson and Larimer — are only becoming more blue with Trump as the head of the Republican Party.
The population increases in these counties is another possible factor, as U. From tothe Democratic margin of victory grew significantly in each county. Among those, only Larimer went for a Republican — back in with the upset victory by Cory Gardner in the U.
