    There are liberal voters -- and then there are San Francisco voters.

    It may come to no surprise to the general public, but a research paper produced by political scientists at UCLA and MIT spells it out: San Francisco's voters are the most-liberal in the country, according to reports.

    The researchers, Chris Warshaw and Chris Tausanovitch, studied eleven years' worth of surveys that -- according to San Francisco magazine -- judged the values of 275,000 voters.

    San Francisco was the most-far left, with Washington, D.C., Seattle, and Oakland not far behind, the magazine reported.

    The researchers judged data including taxation and spending. So despite struggles over land use between big business and renters, it's all about where the money goes. And it's going left, where the voters want it, the magazine reported.
