ZERO chance it will be in play in the Presidential general. None whatsoever. (Said the Californian)
However, it could be HUGE in the GOP Primary if the matter isn’t settled.
California is political fukushima. Don’t go near.
Newt is screwy if he really believes this.
Karl Rove thought this in 2000, dumped huge amounts of money in California, ultimately losing CA 52-40 by 1.3 million votes.
Rove assumed FLA was in the bag and ignored it, almost losing the election for Bush. The architect? Right.
California is more out of reach now than then.
Newt is wrong with this conclusion. California has been totally conquered by a coalition of blacks, homosexuals, non christians, Illegal aliens(mainly Mexicans) Asians and governmental drones. The only interesting feature being the date the various coalition members fall apart and start fighting each other for the remainder of the spoils. The opening shot will probably occur demand is made that the Mexican flag be flown concurrently with the American flag over the Los Angeles city hall.
This writer is a clown.
There are many House members from the GOP representing Cali. And 30% registered voters ain’t bad for a state like Cali.
Massachusetts’ Repubs come in at 12% and Scott Brown won a statewide election.
Anything can happen. Obama is that bad. And if gas is at $7 bucks by November. Long shot, yes. But does not deserve ridicule of this writer.
Even if Cali can’t carry the votes in the general election, there is still a lot of money in Cali, and this is what Newt is really after.
