23. Nice summation of what I've seen

I've worked in the WashDC area for many years and many of my friends decided to relocate to NC on retirement. These are generally pretty liberal folks (meaning that they have an open mind). The Research Triangle and surrounding piedmont areas are attractive because of the quality academic institutions and the recreation available.

Just like Georgia/Atlanta, Texas/Dallas-FW, Virginia/NoVA the red states have strong pockets of educated and intelligent people that are willing to use their brains to figure out how to vote. (Not saying the others don't have any brains and just follow their pastor/NRA-person/FUXNews/KochOwners, but...)
