CA to vote on splitting into three states

I hadn't heard of this movement but it has now reached the point where the guy ramrodding it got ~402,000 signatures on a petition so it will be on the November ballot.

What are the odds, do you think?

If liberals lost all those electoral college votes, split into three, they would never win another election period.

I do not think it will happen. I can not rule out though, the bigoted left of the coast actually voting for it because in their narrow mind they would be getting rid of those wretched other side of the mountain people.

They'd add 4 electoral votes, and 4 senators

Yup, but the urban leftists would be split into 3 states. It would end up much like MN it at least one of them if not 2.

This has been proposed almost 200 times in CA.

Last time a State was formed from another State was West Virginia in 1861.....
