Cleveland's 10 Most Republican and Democratic Suburbs


Election 2020 is finally here. And, as always, Ohio is a must-win state for both President Trump and Vice President Biden. Highlighting its importance, Biden is spending his final day on the trail visiting our beautiful city to make his pitch to Clevelanders.


Although the Cleveland-area leans heavily Democratic, Cuyahoga County as a whole is polarized. Some suburbs reliably vote Democrat, others consistently cast Republican ballots. We analyzed data from the Cuyahoga County Board of Election's website to find out which suburbs receive the crown as "Most Republican" and "Most Democratic." Based on an average of each party's vote in the past two elections (the 2018 governor's race and the 2016 presidential race), here are Cleveland's most Republican and Democratic suburbs.
