You used to have to go to Facebook to get such quality content but now the Post has it!

And I already live in the place it says I should live.
 
2014-06-17 04:41:34 PM
I live within 45 miles of the 5 towns suggested.
 
2014-06-17 04:43:37 PM
Suggested a town with a population of 104 in the middle of nowhere.  I guess I have odd political leanings.
 
2014-06-17 04:43:45 PM
Well, was that spectacularly wrong. I'm home right where I should be and fark you WaPo nerd metrosexual nancy boys

What's not to like about Oral?

I live in Chicago ... it told me I should live in Chicago.

This is surprising because I thought it would tell me that my more liberal leanings would place me closer to the Kentucky border.

I further went on to learn that if I were to leave IL and move to California that Berkeley and SF are my ideal locals and if I chose OR that Portland would be a smashing choice.

I would have never have guessed any of this without this link.

Cibecue, AZ 85911
 

But the 3 hour commute would change my politics
 
2014-06-17 04:45:16 PM
Lake Havasu City, Az.

Some Podunk town outside of Odessa?  Hell no.
 
2014-06-17 04:47:36 PM
Yeah I live the next town over from New Haven already. I'll pass on the violence, Thanks.
 
2014-06-17 04:48:04 PM
Why should I have to answer a bunch of questions to read an article?  Screw that.
 
2014-06-17 04:48:56 PM
hah, live exactly where I am suppoed to.

However, in Kansas, there really is no choice.

Your either an idiot or you live in 1 of 3 cities...
 
2014-06-17 04:49:07 PM
My choices are Philadelphia or Philadelphia. :-/
 
2014-06-17 04:49:17 PM
Because if we need anything right now it's a way to further isolate ourselves from those with different views.
 
2014-06-17 04:51:10 PM
I am now supposed to live in big bend national park in texas with a with an urban density of 0.244 peeps per square mile.

I am so lonely
 
2014-06-17 04:51:29 PM
1, hillbilly
2. black poor inner city.
3. poor white suburb
4. poor white suburb
5. black middle class inner city

You gotta admire the precision
 
2014-06-17 04:52:50 PM
I should live in Oklahoma City... and I answered "Disagree" to "I prefer urban areas".  I guess their data shows that's where I'd be more likely to find people who are more liberal than most around these parts.

/Lives near Stillwater, plenty of both libs and cons there.
 
2014-06-17 04:53:14 PM
I will never take any of these so called tests. Does anyone else think that all of these surveys/questionnaires are thinly veiled profiling and data gathering schemes, or am I just paranoid? Even if they are not specifically designed for that purpose, the information provided can certainly be compiled and made into a file on an individual.

Fu(k that noise.
 
2014-06-17 04:53:56 PM
Elsa, Texas here I come.
 
2014-06-17 04:55:11 PM
#1 Rio Verde, AZ.

#5 on the list was where I actually live.
 
2014-06-17 04:55:23 PM
Otisburg? Otisburg?!

McGrits: I am now supposed to live in big bend national park in texas with a with an urban density of 0.244 peeps per square mile.

It kind of over corrected on the population thing, just because I don't necessarily prefer urban doesn't mean I want to live in the wilderness.
 
2014-06-17 04:56:52 PM
I should apparently be living in Annandale-on-Hudson, famous for being the birthplace of Jean Grey of X-Men fame, and for mostly being owned by Bard College. Bearsville in second, Willow in third, Maryknoll (finally, one I've heard of) in fourth and Lake Hill in fifth. Apparently I REALLY belong in Dutchess County.
 
2014-06-17 04:57:09 PM
I live in Columbus, Ohio, but I can't get a combination that comes up as that - it keeps wanting to put me in the Cleveland area, and there ain't nobody who wants to live in Cleveland.

Seriously though, I'm not sure how Columbus isn't on the lefty cities when we have George Takai coming in to grand marshal our pride parade this weekend. That's like +25 to your LGBT score right there.
 
2014-06-17 04:57:29 PM
Las Vegas? What kind of immoral drunk do you think I am?
 
2014-06-17 04:57:41 PM
No shock here. I live in the next county over as a matter of fact.

Norfolk being on the list surprised me though.

1. Ann Arbor
 
2014-06-17 04:58:09 PM
I got Collegeville,  MN. Since it would make my commute 90 minutes, I think I'll pass.
3 of the remaining 4 were podunk towns (populations < 1,000) in the middle of nowhere. While the last was Minneapolis.

It's the only way many of our views survive.
 
2014-06-17 04:58:25 PM
Weird.  I changed my answers one by one to see all the different places in OK it might send me.  Finally I wound up with all of my same, original answers but was given a different city.  First time it was OKC, second time Langston.
 
2014-06-17 04:59:07 PM

tricycleracer: Elsa, Texas here I come.


Apparently I'm supposed to be your new neighbor.

coldcuts: Cibecue, AZ 85911


But the 3 hour commute would change my politics


That's exactly where it said I should be. I was surprised it didn't suggest I move out of AZ entirely. My politics don't fit here, at. all.

Once I started changing states, I noticed that as well. Can't I just live in the country about 10 miles outside of a smallish city rather than 75 miles from one?
 
2014-06-17 05:00:24 PM
For my current state, Florida, it suggests I should live in Miami.... FARK NO!!!! Or Lake Worth... HOLY FARKING NO NO NO!!!
For Colorado, it suggests a place in Boulder and several in Denver... I am intrigued

Correction: Dutchess OR Ulster County.

Any app that tells me i should live in Dallas can eat a dick.
 
2014-06-17 05:01:32 PM
It put me in Pittsburg, New Hampshire.  Basically, it wanted me as far away from others in the state as possible.

Nix Nightbird: As I keep saying (and as this demonstrates) Detroit is not an example of a town governed by liberals; Nearby Ann Arbor is, and it's consistently listed as one of the nicest places to live in America.


Having lived in Detroit, I agree. Detroit isn't run by liberals but rather, I think, corrupt Conservative Democrats. A lot of the people are anti-gay and pro-religion, but they do love their government handouts. It's an odd mix.
 
2014-06-17 05:01:55 PM
Good thing they really covered the important nuanced bits of politics. That was bad, subby, and you should feel bad.
 
2014-06-17 05:02:11 PM
All five of my choices were just different zip codes in Omaha...
 
2014-06-17 05:02:13 PM
Does anyone else think that it might be better to live around people who don't agree with you on everything? At least it might be more interesting.
 
2014-06-17 05:02:14 PM

I May Be Crazy But...: tricycleracer: Elsa, Texas here I come.

Apparently I'm supposed to be your new neighbor.


What with all my relatives wanting me to move down to Texas I was curious so uh... want to make a convoy?
 
2014-06-17 05:02:55 PM
Um... typically, the overall political ideologies of cities were determined by who lives there, not the other way around.
 
2014-06-17 05:03:10 PM
ohh ffs it doesn't work!
 
2014-06-17 05:03:21 PM
5 towns I've never heard of, the closest of which is 10 hours away.  Great survey.
 
2014-06-17 05:03:28 PM
After testing it on my current state, I tried three others that I may live in at some point in the future and bit my target all three times.
 
2014-06-17 05:04:07 PM
Your ideology is most aligned with that of the residents of: 1.Saint Georges, DE 19733


2. I actually live in the #4 suggestion (19801 ZIP) and that's good enough
 
2014-06-17 05:05:10 PM

I May Be Crazy But...: Does anyone else think that it might be better to live around people who don't agree with you on everything? At least it might be more interesting.


If that were the case I should move to all the bits in Virginia that just kind of bleed in with West Virginia and Kentucky. No thank you.
 
2014-06-17 05:05:44 PM
Number 5 option for me is Moody Air Force Base...
