Study: Mesa is the nation's most conservative city

PHOENIX -- Mesa, the third-largest suburb in Arizona, has been named America's most conservative city in a recent study.

According to USA Today, the study was conducted by researchers at UCLA and MIT, and it involved 51 U.S. cities with more than 250,000 inhabitants.

The study compared the policy preferences of residents and the actual city policies implemented.

"The policies enacted by cities across a range of policy areas correspond with the liberal-conservative positions of their citizens on national policy issues," the professors wrote.

The cities that followed Mesa for most conservative were Oklahoma City, Virginia Beach, Va., Colorado Springs, Colo., and Jacksonville, Fla., respectively.

Phoenix and Tucson also appeared on the list, though on the liberal side.

San Francisco was named the country's most liberal city, followed by Washington, D.C., Seattle, and Boston.
