I mostly grew up in Orange County. Basically the more north in the county you are, the more liberal it becomes, as you’re closer to LA. Yorba Linda is an exception though.
With that being said, people there are not going to treat you any different just because of your skin colour. California as a whole is very diverse and many people there are used to being around a variety of cultures in their daily life. Many who live in Ladera Ranch and surrounding towns go shopping at the Irvine Spectrum, you will hear a lot of languages other than English and Spanish being spoken there.
While most of South OC is very Republican I have found that people don’t make a big deal about politics. If they do then most likely they won’t say anything and just avoid you, but you probably don’t want to be friends with those kinds of people anyway.

Well I voted for Trump, have a PhD in nuclear chemistry and own 3 houses in Ladera Ranch but apparently I am "poor" and "uneducated". Not sure why you would care, there is a reason our city is so nice Majority of the city leans right, we do not feel the need to broadcast our political views however and everyone gets along just fine. My neighbor is a democrat, I am a republican. It maybe came up once in conversation and that was it. We are best friends and go out for drinks every Friday night. Surrounding yourself with different opinions is important.

Honestly, if you are looking for a far left utopia where your opinion is the only opinion, Ladera Ranch is not the place for you. You might want to check out Laguna Beach or Laguna Niguel you may like as well. Irvine is a little more balanced but I am not sure as you mentioned your price range will allow for it. I would seriously look into Laguna Niguel. I lived there for 3 years and loved it, just a little more crowded. I love how quiet Ladera Ranch is and being further from the 5 is a plus to me at this point

I agree, So many of working class neighborhoods in California are now $1M plus and for the higher income upper middle class today. Small simple homes, like you also see around San Jose now $1.2-1.5M, that grocery store works, police and teachers lived in. Today it tech millionaires, executives living in these simple homes and updated them into mini palaces inside.
