Poverty

I have NOT verified these myself:

What do the top ten cities with the highest poverty rate all have in
common?

Detroit, MI (1st on the poverty rate list) hasn't elected a
Republican mayor since 1961;

Buffalo, NY (2nd) hasn't elected one since 1954;

Cincinnati, OH (3rd)...since 1984;

Cleveland, OH (4th)...since 1989;

Miami, FL (5th) has never had a Republican mayor;

St. Louis, MO (6th)....since 1949;

El Paso, TX (7th) has never had a Republican mayor;

Milwaukee, WI (8th)...since 1908;

Philadelphia, PA (9th)...since 1952;

Newark , NJ (10th)...since 1907.

Another viewpoint

The REAL Top Ten Cities With the Highest Poverty Rate. Why do Republicans Lie?
****SEVERAL PEOPLE ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THESE LINKS. I HAVE JUST TRIED ALL OF THESE AGAIN, AND EACH OF THEM WORKS. PLEASE TRY THEM HERE:

Poverty is a complex issue, with many reasons and angles to approach both defining and correcting. Yet we get another Republican poll on SH that uses made up information to blame the Democrats for the the top 10 poverty ridden cities in the USA. This list is BS. The links provided go to a blog thread that is NOT AN OFFICIAL PART OF SNOPES AND THEIR DEBUNKING! The second link goes to a story totally unrelated to the subject: IT'S ABOUT ABORTION!

This proves, once again how mindless Republibots can be, by nodding their heads in agreement while neither thinking nor researching for themselves. The ONLY thing I found to verify this poll was from a blog, which looks like it came from one of those "This is TRUE!!!!!!" emails.

Depending upon the criteria used for ranking, one can find several lists of top poorest cities. Following are TWO different lists I found while googling poorest 10 cities in US, and their mayoral parties affiliations:

1. Brownsville, Texas – Dem since 2007
2. Flint, Mich. - Republican
3. Syracuse, N.Y. - Republican (former republican mayor Roy Bernardi, resigned upon his appointment by President George W. Bush to a position in the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
4. Rochester, N.Y. - Dem since 2006
5. Dayton, Ohio - Dem since 2006
6. Cleveland - Dem
7. Detroit - Dem
8. Buffalo - currently Dem, though its longest serving mayor of the past half-century, James Griffin, switched political affiliations several times and most frequently attained electoral victory from socially conservative platforms.
9. Erie, Pa. - Dem
10. Waco, Texas - Republican

These are REAL links. They actually take you somewhere that backs up my poll.

While the majority of these cities do have Democratic mayors, there are many more reasons why these cities rank as the poorest. Loss of industry, loss of housing, poor infrastructure, etc. These cities did not just "become" poor when a Democrat took over the reins.

cities

are inherently welfare states as in that all the taxes that are raised and paid are voted in by the majority of people who of course live in the cities.we the rural landowners dont get much for our property taxes other than one paved road and afire dept but still the cities wanna raise taxes cause they will have a budget deficit,make all the citiots pay more.i dont go to the city nor do i do business there but i am expexted to pay for it"It's a hell of a thing...killing a man.You take away all he's got,and all he's ever gonna have."

don't know about dividing up the rural and urban areas. you're still an american right? there are a lot of taxes that go to educational systems, LEA's, military branches, etc... that effect everyone in the country.
