Do you live in a blue, red, or purple area? [View all]

My area of western Montgomery County, PA is purple, meaning a close mix of Democrats and Republicans. If you go towards Pottstown or Skippack or Gilbertsville, it gets more red/Republican. If you go south in the county, it is more blue/Democratic.

So what would you consider your area to be?
