Trump is on track for a level of defeat in California not seen since the Civil War

President Trump lost overwhelmingly in California in 2016, and 2020 could be even worse, putting him on track for the poorest showing by a Republican presidential candidate in the state since the Civil War, a new poll finds.

Just 29% of likely California voters say they plan to vote for Trump, compared with 67% who say they do not, according to a new UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies poll, conducted for the Los Angeles Times.

Trump lost the state to Hillary Clinton by 30 points in 2016, and the state’s voters have moved further from his party since then. The administration has fought California officials on a host of issues involving immigration, healthcare and the environment, among other things — all topics on which Trump’s positions are unpopular in the state.

In the 2018 midterm election, Republicans lost seven contested congressional seats in the state, including in onetime GOP strongholds in Orange County.

This is very bad news for California Republicans, even if Trump isn't on the ticket next year.

Even if it means cutting off financial support; that's totally legal and democratic right?

Under Pres. Obama, we saw the results. Our freeways were being repaired, cash for clunkers was good for consumers and the air quality, employment went way up and we were pulling ourselves out of the Bush years.

We were happy again. Then came tRump.

All he does is shit on everything and screw things up! He points out problems and makes them worse out of spite.

We will never kiss his ass!

The Electoral College must go or be circumvented by the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
