Looks like the California primary elections didn't quite produce the desired results that some were looking for.

The hopes of many "tickets" being one party are apparently gone.

Voters are to blame !! 😲

California breaks Democrats' hearts: 'Big, blue shutout' fails and other takeaways from Tuesday's primaries

Neither party managed to land any knockout blows in California Tuesday as voters went to the polls there and in seven other states to pick candidates who will face off in the Nov. 6 midterm elections, when control of the U.S. House and Senate will be up for grabs.

The fate of President Trump’s legislative priorities will hang in the balance in November. Right now Republicans control both the House and Senate, but a swing of just 23 seats would give Democrats a House majority. The GOP holds a narrow majority of 51 seats in the Senate, with Democrats controlling 47 seats and independents who caucus with Democrats holding two seats.

California, home to the nation’s largest congressional delegation with 39 Democrats and 14 Republicans, has a so-called “jungle primary.” All candidates initially competed on a single ballot Tuesday. The two who come out on top go on to the general election, regardless of political party. This makes it possible for two Democrats or two Republicans to face each other in November.

Californians are sick of being taxed to death and getting nothing more than the people of any other state for the sacrifice.

Cali loves open borders! What the heck is going on?

Trump has infected Californians minds, it is clear they must be purified by taxes and unmonitored spending and handouts.

I'm curious how many ATS'ers left California, for one reason or another, and are glad they did, or at least wouldn't return.

I'm one of them....

Lifetime resident (50+) leaving in August. Love the land but hate the politics,taxes,regulations, cost of living, housing market, droughts and traffic. Never thought I could leave the Pacific Ocean but here we are..prepping a move and lining up the logistics.

as a former California resident I can tell you right now that the government is mismanaging their resources just like they are in many states

also, many Californians(the ones I know) are tired of high taxes and the traffic, the traffic is really really bad. I was very surprised to hear one of my buddies entertaining the idea of moving to Denver, never thought I would hear that

also I would like to point out there are a lot of positives to California but the culture can be... deceiving

Nearly everyone I work with were Cali Socialists.
They saw how good , sane , and civil the folks are in Georgia and reformed on the spot.

Soon , there will be no Cali . It will be a suburb of Mexico .
The good folks are learning from their friends how good life is outside of Cali and are going through a mass migration to the promised land. (anywhere outside of the Cali State border.)

It sounds like they didn't go hard enough on blaming whitey mc whitey with their racists ,homophobic , and sexist ways.

Maybe next time if they could scream a little harder and blame whitey a little more for all the issues in this country along with their deplorable families, they may just get more support.

Yeah that should work.

Or perhaps it was those pesky Russians again.

same source


That means the suburban, college-educated, mostly white, Republican married women who appeared to desert Trump in droves in November 2016 (and who either voted for Clinton or just didn’t vote) may be starting to come home to the GOP, at least as far as voting for other Republicans is concerned.


So the married women have forgiven Trump - this should be interesting

I was born and raised here in California.

This State has been stolen from the people.

Most people here are great people just trying to live their lives.

Politics here repulses most people.

So please refrain from your “I hope they fall in the ocean” or,

“California is all fruits and nuts”. It’s hurtful.

Not really, we don’t care what you think.

I see your point. Yet those leaving are flirting with 'refugee' status.

It is telling. Then there's the fact that it seems to be an 'illness' that spreads. There's only two things I find redeeming in Ca., that's the USC Trojans and the Rose Bowl...

I moved from Cali and the cost of living is sooo much better, but damn do I miss it?! The sunshine, the salty air and warmth at the same time, the palm trees, the beautiful women... ahh I miss it, but at the same time my costs are a third of what they were.

The way it's going, one will have to be very rich in 20-30 years to live in California, but maybe that's the goal -- an oasis for the rich once they deplete the rest of the country.
