    Of course, I don't think there's more than 1% chance of this happening. Isn't there something in the Constitution about states not being split into more states? (I'll have to get my copy out and look I guess....)
    Its definitely an east/west thing for me.

    As a lifelong San Diegan I can say that even here, which is pretty traditonal conservative overall, there's a distinct increase in conservatism the farther you go inland.

    If the map in the thread was the one up for consideration I'd fight hard against it to avoid being lumped in with all those "inlanders"!

    Agreed. The liberal communities are lined along the Pacific coast and the interior is the opposite, so I think the East/West idea would be better than this North/South proposal.

It would be like dividing Texas into 4 states and ensuring that 8 more Senate Republicans get elected. I can't support gerrymandering with state lines.
    It was not my intention to stack the Senate when I suggested California be broken into 4 states. In fact, that is probably unlikely to happen. California already has two Democratic senators; if you divided the state according to the boundaries I suggested that balance would be unlikely to change very much. NoCal would probably elect two Democrats, the interior would probably elect two Republicans, the LA metro area would probably elect two Democrats, and SoCal would be a "swing state" that could go either way. So the ultimate result of breaking it into four states would probably be that the Democrats were still +2 senators (give or take one) for the region.

    The reason that California should be broken apart has nothing to do with the federal government, and everything to do with the fact that California is simply too big and ungovernable to be run like a state.
