In Ada County, ID 46, 1% of people voted Democratic in the last presidential election, 50.0% voted for the Republican Party, and the remaining 3.9% voted. The following map shows the political leanings of people in and around Boise. Darker red areas have almost all Republican voters, dark blue areas mostly vote for Democrats, and lighter or light purple areas are areas where voting is generally divided between parties. The wonderful state of Idaho is known to be one of the most conservative states in the nation.
However, many of the capitals and major cities of otherwise conservative states are more liberal in nature. Does this sound true for Boise, the capital of Idaho? In a state where legislators can boast of being members of the Oath Guardians, the strip has become mainstream. One of the concerns many Idaho residents have is the immigration of people from California, Oregon and Washington to Idaho. I spent a lot of time in Boise while attending Boise State University, and while I can testify that the overall feel of the area is very different from that of neighboring Canyon County, significantly more conservative, my experience there was wonderful.
Observing and comparing the general voting patterns of Idaho and Ada County (the county in which Boise is located) is very revealing as to the political position of the population of Boise.
