Seattle tops popularity list of U.S. cities
Raleigh, N.C. –
The Pacific Northwest has a good reputation nationwide--the two mostpopular of the 21 prominent cities we asked about in our national poll last weekend areSeattle and Portland, OR. 57% of American voters see Seattle favorably and only 14%unfavorably, edging out Portland (52-12) by three points on the margin.The most unpopular is Detroit, which only 22% see positively and 49% negatively.Americans have net-negative impressions of only two other of these cities: Oakland, CA(21-39) and Los Angeles (33-40).Between the pack are Boston (52-17), Atlanta (51-19), Phoenix (49-18), Dallas (48-21),New York (49-23), New Orleans (47-24), Houston (45-22), Salt Lake City (43-20),Philadelphia (42-22), San Francisco (48-29), Baltimore (37-24), Las Vegas (43-33),Chicago (42-33), Cleveland (32-25), Washington, D.C. (44-39), and Miami (36-33).Perhaps because women are more likely to be Democrats than are men, and Democratsmore likely to be in urban areas than are Republicans, women and Democrats are onlynegative on two cities (Oakland and Detroit), while men are on four (D.C., L.A.,Oakland, and Detroit), and Republicans are on eight (Miami, Vegas, San Fran, D.C.,Chicago, Oakland, L.A., and Detroit).The biggest partisan gap is unsurprisingly for D.C. Democrats like it by a net 44 points,while Republicans dislike it by 24, for a 68-point gap. Not far behind are Chicago(Democrats by 61), L.A. (59), S.F. (51), N.Y. (41), Detroit (33), Vegas (Democrats by32), Houston (Republicans by 32), Houston (GOP by 29), NOLA (Dems by 28),Baltimore (27), Oakland (25), Boston (24), Salt Lake (GOP by 22), Philly (Dems by 21),Seattle (17), Miami (15), Atlanta (14), Phoenix (GOP by 14), Cleveland (Dems by 11),and Portland (10).The largest gap between black and white voters is on L.A., which black voters like by 35points and white voters dislike by 16, for 51 points. That is followed distantly by D.C.(blacks by 34), Vegas and Chicago (30), Salt Lake (whites by 28), Atlanta and Detroit(blacks by 23), Miami (19), NOLA and N.Y. (18), and Portland (whites by 17).PPP surveyed 900 American voters from April 12
