    Very very telling. Only one US city finished in the top ten friendliest cities. Charleston SC. The bastion of liberal democrat US cities are right up there with Pakistan and Angola. Something for the Democrats to be proud of to be sure...

    A lot of Conde Nast readers spend a lot of time in Newark or Islamabad, do they?

    Charleston hasnt had a Republican mayor since 1877. I think the largest city with a Republican mayor is like Indianapolis.

    In a state that went heavily for Romney, Charleston voted for Obama.

    Just seems to me if you are going to blame "leftist Democrats" for the sh%tty cities, you should also credit them for all the world-class destination cities too. Only seems fair.

    You are definitely in the wrong place if you're looking for fair.

    Is there actually empirical evidence linking political affiliation to friendliness?


    Side note, I think San Diego has had Republican mayors recently.

    I'm sure there's plenty of empirical evidence. Results will vary.

    I've seen scientific evidence as well. You can google and find studies that suggest [the other party] are all mean spirited people.

    Yep... The ills of all societies are the unions and the commies that support them.

    fish in a barrel. :)

    All the ills of society are leftist ideas. Or should I say implementation. Some of the ideas are good but people like Obama get in the mix and you have a sh!tball.

    This is actually true. I've been to a couple dozen "liberal" cities and people there tend to be full of themselves. Not very helpful, not very friendly. Strangely, the further away from dense populations, the friendlier the people. The 3 or 4 large "conservative" cities I've been to are quite a bit more friendlier. But, I would say I prefer rural over urban any day. We are halfway, so we are suburban:)

    My guess is it's more than not being helpful. I think they kill you.

    Color me shocked that it didn't make the list either.

    The people who's lives and income depend on tourists, sure they're "nice", but just about everyone else are snooty douchebags.

    If the study were truly measuring the people (not the city, the food, ambience, etc), then it's hard to believe Paris wouldn't be on there.
