- Fixed it as follows:
Liberal Portland versus Conservative Eastern and Southwestern Oregon
The high population density northwest areas of the state (Portland and Salem) are very liberal leaning especially in the area of environmentalism. The southwest area of the state (such as the Rogue Valley, Josephine County and Jackson County) and the portion east of the Cascades are very conservative. Hence, Eastern Oregon (Palouse, Harney Basin, High Desert, Treasure Valley and East Central Oregon) is considered to be part of the conservative American Redoubt area of the United States.
