I’d be lying if I wasn’t happy seeing the end of Clintonism. As Trump’s victory rolled in, his strategy became apparent. Energize the rust belt filled with blue collar workers who have been abandoned by the Democrats in both social policies and, with Clinton, economic ones. Trump recognized that the Blue Collar Reagan Democrats, with its wide presence in several states, still exists and is the true swing vote. But California isn’t in the rust belt. With 61% voting for Clinton, that is an alarm. California has a large immigrant population. Its economy is built on high tech, high end agriculture, and entertainment – all export products. Trump never had a chance in California so it’s makes sense not to cater to it. But for us Republicans behind the blue curtain we have less to stand on. Socially our policies never gave us a majority. Now that the GOP has shifted economically, that is gone too. Once we are done celebrating the nation’s victory, we need to get together and think of our brand for California because the national GOP one won’t sell here.
