  • I believe it would depend on the area of the state you live in. Example, the area I live in (in Louisiana) is very republican. New Orleans is very democrat. I would just not discuss politics unless you're looking for some very active conversation. LOL

  • Well, based on the 2008 presidential election results, there are 9 BLUE counties in MO! Maybe you can select a red county that borders a blue county and have your cake and eat it too?! LOL :o)

  • Unless you are running for state office you probably won't see a huge difference. Unless you move with a chip on your shoulder.

  • lonely. lol. I am a democrat living in Montana. I just dont bring up politics and try to stay out of such conversations because I am always the odd one out. I find myself biting my tongue quite frequently.....makes me miss Seattle. Really though, politics has become such a taboo subject, it is not very often that I encounter those types of situations.

  • it won't matter, i'm from mo and the best thing to do is to not talk politics to those close to you, everyone has different ideas

  • i think its just that you have different kinds of people and social norms.... it doesnt matter too much though

  • If you are proud to be a Democrat than it should not matter where you go.

  • May I ask why you would consider moving there, if you're concerned about politics?

    Answer by agentwanda at 9:33 PM on Sep. 29, 2010

  • Can you tell, just by moving?

    I just wouldn't talk politics with the neighbors if you want to picnic with them. If you don't like them then go ahead have at it!
