Does anyone here think that California will REALLY split into three states?

2018-07-10 06:44:36 UTC  

Or do you think CA will just rig the election again?

CA is better undivided.

2018-07-10 10:05:18 UTC  

The Dems don't need another two senators.

2018-07-10 10:05:32 UTC  

If you've ever been in CA, you've noticed the elections here have been all decided by Los Angeles and San Francisco.

2018-07-10 10:05:51 UTC  

Letting THEM be their own thing, and letting the rest of the counties vote for themselves would be a good thing.

2018-07-10 10:06:18 UTC  

Northern California is mostly Republican, but our votes don't matter if the big three cities are democrat

2018-07-10 10:06:23 UTC  

Which they ALWAYS are

2018-07-10 10:06:36 UTC  

Not to mention San Diego, which is usually a Republican stronghold

2018-07-10 10:07:02 UTC  

Splitting California would mean democrats get LESS power, not more

2018-07-10 10:27:54 UTC  

Over time they'd get all three due to their proximity to one another. Secondly, these R strongholds are becoming increasingly purple due to the displacement of the local GOP white population. They're voting red now. In eight years they won't be.

2018-07-10 10:28:10 UTC  

Mark my words.

2018-07-10 10:30:47 UTC  

The division of the states will be decided by a monopoly Democratic legislature also.

2018-07-10 10:32:24 UTC  

Most models I've seen have three states, 1 red, 1 purple and 1 blue.

2018-07-10 10:33:04 UTC  

The purple state among the three is not becoming less Democratic, it's becoming moreso. So that's an additional two senators for the Democrats.

2018-07-10 10:34:51 UTC  

The division of CA would also likely greatly legitimise conversations about granting PR and D.C. statehood which eternally locks the GOP out of the Senate.

2018-07-10 10:36:48 UTC  

The best thing to do now is to call for whites to flee a state they will never politically conquer democratically.

2018-07-10 10:40:17 UTC  

Michigan, Florida, Texas, North Carolina, Arizona, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania.

2018-07-10 10:40:25 UTC  

We need men in those states.

2018-07-10 11:05:27 UTC  

Proximity to other states don't exactly mean they'll be swung...

Colorado swung due to its bright economic prospects attracting Californian liberals, in addition to the massive Hispanic immigratiom from Mexico.

2018-07-10 11:18:41 UTC  

Vermont became hard blue due to NYC migrants.

2018-07-10 11:19:42 UTC  

There's extensive precedent for proximity to big blue states causing swing behaviour in red states.

2018-07-10 11:20:23 UTC  

That isn't always the case, though. There's a reason republican strongholds in California are republican strongholds.

2018-07-10 11:21:42 UTC  

But they're rapidly dying. OC for the first time since the 30's flipped.

2018-07-10 11:22:22 UTC  

Likewise several other traditional GOP trenches in CA.

2018-07-10 11:22:41 UTC  

Look at all the OC reps.

2018-07-10 11:22:45 UTC  

All purple.

2018-07-10 11:23:11 UTC  

Are you looking at this, or something?

2018-07-10 11:23:57 UTC  

Because people add in "moderate" to make it look like they're sort of blue

2018-07-10 11:24:07 UTC  

I've got the most likely division on my computer but I'm in bed rn.

2018-07-10 11:24:17 UTC  

I'll post when on comp.

2018-07-10 11:24:21 UTC  

They make it look purple to conceal the fact that these are actually republican counties

2018-07-10 11:24:50 UTC  

Hispanics will flip them in less than eight years.

2018-07-10 11:26:48 UTC  

Need I remind you, the counties indicated by these green circles control the entire state. California was always a RED state until 1992 when San Fransisco became huge.

2018-07-10 11:27:57 UTC  

Dividing the state where red counties can control their own election would be a boost to the GOP population here in California.

2018-07-10 11:31:38 UTC  

But as of right now, there's too many people concentrated in two liberal areas for there to be a fair election.
