Well this has been one heck of a couple of years for the Republican Party. Never in my life time have I see anything like it — given that’s a relatively short lifetime, but who’s counting?

And now that we’re headed towards the next big election, we wanted to get a better sense of what parts of Tennessee would be the most likely to back Donald Trump again.

Specifically, which cities have the highest number of conservative voters in the Volunteer State?

In order to do so, we turned our sites on measuring how each city in Tennessee with populations greater than 5,000 voted and contributed to political campaigns in the past several years. The cities with the highest percentage of voters who voted republican and gave the most to conservatives where named the most conservative cities in the state.

Here are the 10 most conservative places in Tennessee for 2019:

If you’re wondering, Forest Hills is the most liberal city in Tennessee of all those we measured.
