America's Ten Most Conservative Cities, Including Two in Colorado

In recent years, Colorado has been something of a purple state — a blend of Republican red and Democratic blue.

But there are certainly some notable Republican strongholds that stand out on a national level.

A recent study by UCLA professor Chris Tausanovitch and MIT prof  Christopher Warshaw includes their ranking of many major cities by ideology — and of the ten most conservative, two are in Colorado. There's only one other state that landed two cities in the top ten, and it's widely regarded to be the most conservative in the country.

Count down the photo-illustrated rankings below, followed by the complete Tausanovitch-Warshaw paper, which goes into detail about how the list was compiled, among many other things.
