    Well the proof is In the pudding. The RNC has abandoned california, they don't do effective advertising, and they're failing to run Latino and Asian candidates in districts where those groups are vital voting blocs. The few effective republican candidates, like Andy Vidak and Janet Nuyen won without any real support from the state party. Even in Washington state republicans control the legislature because of a good ground game and candidate slate. The CA GOP is content to sit in Irvine while they lose the rest of the state, I'm not a republican nor a Californian so I don't care much, you can dismiss yur problems as evil liberals if you wish

    I will agree the Republican Party is pathetic in California, however, one shouldn't overlook the reality of the situation. One, Democrats gerrymandered the state. Two, unions pushed through the "top two vote getters" law that effectively eliminated any competition in elections. Three, with one out of 5 people receiving some kind of public assistance, the carrot has proved to be an effective tool. Four, with 60% of the nations illegal alien population living in California, the propaganda machine has been in full force, which is not going to favor "order of law" positions the Republicans hold.

    California is a lost cause for at least two generations IMO. I'd love to see Republicans do a better job here, but it's really only going to be the small races, and as long as liberal/progressives hold a super majority in Sacramento, there is nothing Republicans can do to stop anything the liberal/progressives want to do. They have absolutely no purpose there, so it's pretty hard to attract candidates willing to battle to arrive and a job they can't do anything with.

    I grew up in a very Pro-Republican but not necessarily conservative township near the jersey shore. With little research you can find it. I've moved around since then, and ended up in North Jersey. Dominated by Corey Booker's good little Democrat soldiers and wasting Zuckerberg money.

    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    California should be leading the country in so many economic measures, instead, because of unchecked liberal/progressive control, it's a leader in poverty, welfare rolls, taxes, regulations, and unemployment.

    Awesome legacy of the liberal/progressive at work.
    If anyone wants to see what damage liberal politics does, California is a perfect example of why liberalism should be run out of America on a rail.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Cool idea for a thread and it's interesting to see the responses!

    NH is a quirky state. We were the only state north of Virginia to go for Bush in 2000, but we haven't gone GOP in the general elections since. We have 2 polar opposite Senators (Ayotte and Shaheen). We always seem to have very moderate Democratic governors. Our state legislature flips more then the pancakes on the griddle at IHOP. This used to be a very red state, but the influx of Massachusetts liberals who move here to enjoy our tax free living have changed that. Libertarians love NH because we are, after all, the "Live Free or Die" state.

    Most of our friends here are like my husband & me - upper middle class fiscal conservatives who are socially moderate and would like to see the state/country be the same way.

    I think it's the liberal/progressives worst nightmare. It's their policies, ideology, and agenda on display for all to see and evaluate.

    I also think that is why the reality of California receives so little coverage in the MSM.

    So what you're saying is that republicans lose because Latinos won't vote for anyone not Latino and they don't spend enough. I suppose they're kind of ****ed then since immigrants take their politics with them and according to you Latinos are racist.

    I spent many happy days at the shore in my youth. I remember when NJ was a very red state.

    Belleville is in a pretty Democratic area and always was. My parents lived in North Arlington when I was born but we escaped to the suburbs when I was 1.

    Well that would depend on how "in your area" is defined.

    In my Congressional District I'm probably a little more conservative than most folks but wouldn't be considered to be outside the norm. However, compared to the general Tucson area I'd probably be considered a frothing at the mouth, baby eating ogre.
