Florida’s top places to live based on political preference

Weeks away from the election

Considering Florida is the "swingiest swing state" in the 2016 election, per CNN, we thought it’d be interesting to hone in on the top major Florida cities (populations over 100,000) to buy a home and their current political leaning.

Based on desirability and political scale, the best place to buy a home for Florida Democrats is Orlando while the best place for Republicans is Cape Coral, according to, an online, low commission real estate brokerage.

As for South Florida, Miami leans 64 percent Democrat while Hialeah leans 60 percent Republican.

The methodology used sourced from overall desirability, which included crime, real estate affordability, schools, cost of living, and jobs.
