Being from Northern California, I feel like something needs to be said on this topic.
Yes, only 31% of voters in California voted for Trump in the general election, but like everyone knows, California has an absolute shit-load of people. That leaves just under 4,500,000 Trump voters in California during the 2016 general election (around 200,000 less than TX).
So while California is mostly filled with complete fucking idiots and it’s run by more of the same, let’s not forget about how immensely populated and geographically large California is. We cannot just brush off the relatively large amount of Trump support coming out of California just because our electoral votes go elsewhere.
