Social Does anyone see California picking a GOP president in the near future?

    Ca has voted for a Democrat every time since 1992.
    Washington State has voted for the Democrat presidential candidate since 1988
    Oreogn has voted for the Democrat presidential candidate since 1988

    In the near future I don't see this changing. The West coast, excuding Alaska, is going to vote for the Dem presidential candidate everytime, for the near future.

    The GOP can pretty much write off the 3 contiguous West Coast states, unless the GOP has a radical change in their appeal and platform. But if the GOP changes to appeal to these West coast states, they will alienate their Southern and Heartland voters.

    It's possible but it has to be a perfect storm like situation. Like a charismatic Republican candidate going against a terrible incumbent. Doesn't really matter though. Elections are decided by Florida and the Northeast US.

    CA has the most electoral votes, and is the big prize, followed by Texas then FL and NY. The only reason both sides do their best to capture Fl , Ohio and Pa is because those states can be a toss-up while Ca is pretty much in the bag for the Dems.

    They would have to have an actual populist candidate, without the divisiveness and incompetence of Trump. That doesn't currently exist in the party.

    No. I don’t even see what a GOP senator can run on. Californians have made it clear that they’re apparently fine with expensive housing, energy, and plenty of taxes.

    California has always had expensive housing, energy and plenty of taxes even going back to when it was a reliably Republican state that voted the likes of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan by landslide margins genius.

    OK. So what would a Republican run on in 2020 that doesn’t involve deregulation, stupid?

    How about this not playing culture warrior? How about not pandering to Evangelical wackjobs? How about embracing California's cultural and religious diversity? How about looking forward to the future instead of promising a bunch of angry paranoid white folk to bring back the so called good old days? How about repudiating crazy shit like QAnon genius?

    Naw, wont be red for a long time...simply put, we are educated.. mid west and Bible Belt voters are easily swayed by pseudo evangelical/nationalist candidates (palin anyone?).
    Until the right offers candidates with progress platforms that actually have substance it will remain blue.

    Arnold is closest te GOP got to a candidate who could carry Ca , but Arnold is not natural born so no chance of him running.

    Ca is expensive because everyone goes there, because they generate a lot of money so have a lot of rich people. Chicago is expensive, NYC is expensive, Portland and Seattle have prohibitively expensive real estate prices. Desirable places are expensive. Just as waterfront property is usually more expensive than inland property.

    At the end of the day we’re not disagreeing on anything, we both think a Republican can’t win in California, I explained that the only viable position (since white identity politics and other things would not work) in my mind is lowering the cost of living in California, and Californians obviously don’t care about that.

    Anything is possible. Liberals have this strange feeling that when people vote Left, they never ever change. It's why they think a shifting demographic all but insures their ultimate power forever. They have left out any and all possibility that foreigners can ever change their minds.

    I see Texas going blue before California going red.

    They don't have to be Cuban(don't think there are very many Cubans in California anyway), they just have to not be an Evangelical pandering, bring back the good old days!!!, immigration is destroying America, hypocrite jackass who doesn't believe in science.

    Actually California is in the bottom half of IQ/SAT scores, Northern California being at something like 30th place and Southern California being at 40th.
