Back in the day, Orange County was the heart of the Republican Party in California. That was then, this is now.

By today, Democrats were expected to outnumber Republicans in Orange County.

Quote:
At midnight, Aug. 6, the Registrar of Voters posted daily tracking figures showing just nine fewer registered Democrats than Republicans in Orange County, 547,385 vs. 547,394. Given that local Democrat registrations recently have outpaced Republicans by 50 to 100 a day, the flip is expected to become official when the Registrar posts new numbers later today.

The switch will mark the first time Democrats have outnumbered Republicans in the county since a short-lived swap in 1978, following the Watergate scandal. Itís also the latest step in a political and cultural shift thatís been underway for years, with the county becoming more racially, ethnically and economically diverse and the Republican party becoming less popular with non-white, younger voters.

Itís also a sign that Democrats, not Republicans, are gaining momentum. While the two major parties have slipped or held even statewide in recent years (with the GOP falling to third place, statewide) and No Party Preference has gained ground, thatís not been the case in Orange County. Instead, Democrats and Republicans both have gained ground this year, with Democrats taking bigger jumps.

Well, this has always been the plan of the Dems. They bring in millions of immigrants, most illegal and then depend on their spawn to cushion their voter rolls, so they can then push through their agenda. So, no surprises.

I expect you are seeing mostly just a shift in demographics

edit: I see that others said that, so I'll give some numbers (source US Census Bureau)

2000: 51% white 31% Latino 14% Asian 4% African-American
2017: 41% white 34% Latino 21% Asian 4% African-American

Really? That's odd because I'm old enough to remember Reagan saying this:

Riiiight.

Meanwhile, back on Planet Earth, OC went from 33.7% hispanics in 2010 to a whopping 34.2% in 2018. OMG, they're taking over!

Of course, picking a presidential candidate that had fear of hispanics as a plank in his platform kinda energized the hispanic electorate. Then the GOP went and passed a tax reform that raised the taxes on every home owner in Orange County, and the GOP suddenly had a bit of a marketing problem. Trump's attitude to California doesn't help much, either.

That video has nothing to with what I posted. Reagan was talking about temporary guest workers in that clip, whereas I am discussing the fact that illegals have settled in, had kids and registered as Democrats, just as the Democrats want.

I'm sorry you lack the critical thinking skills to differentiate unless you're trolling.

Still don't understand the difference between immigrants and illegal immigrants, huh? Or are you just deliberately being deceitful?
