Reality in California is that the GOP represents the less affluent\ lower education level & white [often Baptist\ Mormon] residents more suited for Moderator cut: Texas than California.

What do I think of those places? They're nice, family-oriented, but very boring. I have a few friends from the San Gabriel Valley who only do things in that whole Glendora/Arcadia/Monrovia/Asuza corridor. Pasadena is just about the closest to LA they ever get. With them, it seems like if the place doesn't end in an 'a', they know nothing about it. Needless to say, I don't do things with them too often.

Nita,
It's difficult getting data but this link shows voting data going back to Mayor Yorty for the San Gabriel Valley. What surprised me is how Democratic this area has been for over 40 years: California's 26th congressional district - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Can one live in San Dimas/Glendora, go to Pasadena for some Entertainment, and then go to LA for the really big things conveniently?

Depends on your personal definition of convenient. But yes, you can do that.

That is quite a generalization. The 26 congressional district includes areas of La Canada all the way east to Rancho Cucamonga. There is a world of difference in the demographics of, for instance, Pasadena--or even parts of Pasadena--and say, Rancho Cucamonga. And when your source states, "L.A. County is one of the most democratic in the state," they mean GREATER L.A., of which the San Gabriel Valley is only one part.

Yes, I understand your point since some congressional districts overlap\ extend into 2 counties. That's why it is helpful to study the data on the Wikipedia link [I know Wikipedia isn't 100% reliable but finding voting data for the San Gabriel valley requires a bit of research]. Considering the very large Asian & Latino communities in that district does suggest one reason why it is heavily Democratic.

For Glendora, see: http://www.ci.glendora.ca.us/aboutglendora/demographics.html (broken link)

and for San Dimas: City of San Dimas

That's funny because your map shows that La Verne, San Dimas, and Glendora (middle class), had a majority that voted for McCain. San Marino and Bradbury are quite wealthy and they also had a McCain majority.
