The political cultures of Detroit

See also

The City of Detroit is known to be one of the strongest Democrat strongholds in the nation. Meanwhile Oakland County is a haven for the Republican Party. Southeastern Michigan is home to a variety of political views with five key designations prevalent.

Over the years many people develop strong political views. The most common path is to start as an idealistic person, generally called a liberal, and evolve into a conservative later in life.

When it comes to politics in America there are five major groups:

1. Democrat, tends to be liberal on all issues.

2. Republican, tends to be conservation on all issues.

3. Libertarian, has a blend of the typically conservative and liberal issues.

4. Independent, also has a blend of the typically conservative and liberal issues.

5. Apolitical, is uninterested or inactive in politics.

Because an individual's culture may be liberal, moderate or conservative regardless of their party affiliation each party has outliers that will not directly adhere to all the beliefs of the culture in general.
