I'm trying to see if there is any correlation (on this forum, not in general) between geographic location - for US members only - and political leaning. It seems that posters from the south and midwest are predominantly right-leaning republicans, whereas posters from the northeast and from California are predominantly left-wing democrats. Then again, there seems to be an even stronger correlation between age and political inclination. So if you can, just post your age, location (US only please), and political affiliation (if any) along with the way you usually lean. I have no idea if this thread will be of any real use, but I'm curious nonetheless. I'll start. I'm 23 years old and live in southern California. I am registered as a non-partisan and tend to lean rightward with respect to economic and social welfare issues. I lean leftward primarily with respect to civil liberties and freedom-of-expression issues, and with religious issues.
