In the meantime, the CA GOP put up lovable candidates like Duncan Hunter who spent election funds on his family vacations, his extramarital affairs (and on flying the family's pet rabbit) and claimed his shorts as golf balls for a veteran's charity. And who threw his wife under the bus when first found out, probably something to do with family values. He is now fund-raising for his legal defense based on the fact that his opponent has a scary-sounding name. Admittedly, a sizable portion of his constituents are well up in years and probably think they're still voting for his father.

If that's the best the CA GOP has to offer, well....

At least slick Willy was a fiscal conservative compared to trillion dollar deficit Trump
"Straight talk" according to Trump and his supporters seems to now mean no more concern about being insulting when talking to others.

Working class whites without a high school degree are Trump's base. White educated suburban voters basically put the biggest Democrat majority in the house since the Watergate era.

Gotta be pretty uneducated to vote in a pathological liar after all
You misquoted your own link.

Your link discusses the differences between people who have a four year college degree and people who don't.

People who don't have a high school diploma vs. people who do isn't a delineation that is discussed in that link.

More like California saying not only "no" to Trump but "Hell no!"

Not sure how that makes California look worse other than for Trump supporters. Though there are still too many Trump supporters, there sure are also lots of millions of Americans who are not at all similarly enamored...

I wasn't sticking up for Trump. I was just pointing out that the entire cost/all coastal cities haven't gone blue....yet, and that Trump's bumbling may make an entirely blue 'edge of the coast' a reality, or at least closer to it.

That's false. Your CA state income tax dollars are for California services, like giving illegals healthcare. So make sure you work extra hard.
I can understand how some Trump supporters simply can't see the "error" in Trump's ways, and I can explain how that can be, but best I don't to keep it civil here. What I surely don't understand, however, is how Trump supporters don't seem to notice all these sorts of nasty people who claim Trump as their leader. Do Trump supporters not ask themselves why these racist, white supremacist, fascist types endorse Trump and carry out their hateful ways in his name?

It's like not understanding why flies are attracted to a big pile of poop. How can someone not ask why all those flies continue to congregate like they do? Not just one or two flies but lots of them, over and over, in Trump's camp!

Why would anyone at a Trump rally chant "send her back, send her back?" How likely would such a thing be at any other rally? Any rally not promoted by David Duke or someone like that? Wake up already!

Trump does "fight fire with fire."

Something like a firefighter thinking to manage a controlled burn that turns into a blaze all around him. Some might think maybe water would work better at some point, but not Trump or his followers!

Fighting fire with fire only works when there is no fire. A controlled burn only works to burn off debris, to prevent fire. If a fire is already there, fighting fire with fire only causes more fire. In this case, Trump is only creating more fires.
