Interesting....You need to review the voting results for prop 8. Along OC, liberal L.A. county voted in favor. Our liberal President also opposes gay marriage.

When you mention the high consentration of Asians and Hispanics in Fullerton are you saying these groups are usually liberal? I only say this because I do not think of Asians as being particularly liberal. Maybe you were just saying there is a good mixture of ethnic groups..

As for Fullerton being liberal, because of the university I would be inclined to agree with you. It is probably as liberal as you will find in OC, bu still not liberal I do not think..

I don't even think Fullerton's schools have much impact. They're both commuter schools so the students live all over the place. UCI is a commuter school too but it has more on campus housing for both students and faculty and is a very red block on the map in the Prop8 story I posted on the first page.

Asians and especially Latinos are part of the base of the Democratic party [people who almost instinctively vote liberal]. Blacks are another racial group that never vote Republican.

Because LA is so ethnically diverse it is a Democratic stronghold. Only the Bay Area equals LA in numbers of Democratic compared to Republicans. Certainly universities\ colleges influence how a city votes. I lived in Chico as a kid where the university is nearly half the town's population. But even Laguna Woods [a retirement town] voted for Obama & want a marijuana dispensary

That is probably pretty true, I was just trying to think of some city that might lean a little more to the left.

Happ, I am not going to argue with you as I do not have the facts and I am sure you do. My feeling from what I do know (not particularly Ca politics) Latins, yes, are more inclined to vote Democratic but Asians not so much so. Of course blacks do, that isn't anything new. Again, if you have figures for the Asians throughout the country showing Asians are democrats I certainly am not going to argue.

they dont instinctively vote liberal. they may vote democrat, but that is something else. latinos tend to be socially conservative(pretty heavily) and asians tend to be libertarian(many of the asians in the so cal basin are first or second generation escaping from oppressive totalitarian regimes in cambodia, korea, vietnam, etc).

Based on what I've observed living in both SoCal and the Bay Area, Asians tend to be moderate Dems rather than liberals.

Since family values make up a huge portion of Asian culture, I'm surprised there's not more Asian Republicans.

Yah...Don't want to live in snobbish conservative OC, like Newport Beach. How about Compton, very open-minded.

I wonder which city has a higher murder rate, gotta love those open-minded liberals.
