California is famous for being the most left-wing state in the union. Reportedly, most of Hillary Clinton’s touted “majority” votes came from that single state, and that’s not surprising, given its combination of flaky celebrities and illegal aliens who no doubt were allowed to cast ballots.
It wasn’t always this way. California was also the birthplace of the Reagan Revolution, which began with the Gipper was governor. Is it possible that this bluest of blue states is turning red? Trump already made historic gains in the 2016 election, but the latest poll has even Republicans floored.
One poll doesn’t another “revolution” make, but these findings are certainly unexpected:
Roughly 74 percent of California residents want to see an end to sanctuary city policies, according to a poll by UC Berkeley.
The issue to end sanctuary cities in the state crosses racial and party lines, with 65 percent of Hispanics registering their agreement, while 70 percent of independents, 82 percent of Republicans, and 73 percent of Democrats feel the same.
During President Donald Trump’s term, sanctuary cities could see a cut in federal funding and pushback from the Department of Justice under likely Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
After Trump’s bold-faced threat to defund sanctuary cities, paired with the latest terror attacks in The Golden State, Californians are finally coming around to the truth: that Republican policies to protect Americans is in the best interests of every citizen.
Note that the source of the poll isn’t a conservative think tank, but the Berkeley campus of the University of California. The name “Berkeley” has been synonymous with radical leftwing activism since the early 1960s.
Can you imagine the look on their faces when they got the results of this poll back? It’s a minor miracle they even agreed to make it public.
Perhaps the election of Donald Trump has finally freed ordinary people to tell the truth to pollsters, whoever they may be. It could also be the first domino in turning blue California red again, and Republican experts are already seeing other striking evidence of this.
What do you think? Can California turn red again in our lifetime—or even the next four years? Let us know in the comments below!
