    Blue State or Red State based on your Party?



    Ok if the U.S Parties split, Democrats and Republicans into 3 other parties with leaders for each party which would you pick?

    Republican Party - Leader Ted Cruz

    Democrats - Leader Joe Biden

    Libertarian Party - Gary Johnson

    Reform Party - Donald J Trump

    Liberal Party Leader - Bernie Sanders


    (If you can pick a better party leader please write it in your comment.)

    I am going with B

    California would almost certainly be Biden because it is no where near as left as people outside the state insist. It's more the Republican party committed suicide here.

    I would prefer Sanders, however.

    Sooo.... why is Dumbass Dump labeled "Reform party" whereas Bernie is labeled "Liberal Party"?

    Shouldn't Dump = "Alt-Conservative Party"?

    California isn't a certainty for Biden. Bernie almost won there in 2016, and chances are that is probably more strengthened towards Bernie than Biden over the years.

    Assuming we had ranked choice-voting and proportional representation to allow a true multi-party system, I'd vote for the "Liberal" Bernie Sanders led party, though it would be called the 'Progressive' Party or the 'Social Democrats,' not the 'Liberals.'

    More to the point I think, California (along with several other safely blue areas) has tremendous amounts of concentrated wealth, which when spent in local elections tends to keep policy to the right even when Democrats are elected. Not as much as in truly red states, but in general the economic populist brand of politics that the Progressive wing of the party is not the politics of the Hollywood/Wall Street/Silicon Valley wealthy elite.

    Seattle suffers from the same, too. The city council was going to put a head tax on large businesses to help raise revenue to address homelessness, but Overlord Bezos threw a fit. The tax would've basically been equivalent to a 50 cent/hour raise for full-time workers, yet Amazon and other businesses was able to cow the city council into repealing it almost immediately. This in a city that had recently raised the minimum wage to over $15/hour.

    Trump isn’t a conservative he is an opportunist. I put reform party but it could be just a place holder.

    Fairly telling that all the listed candidates are old white men.

    Reform Party far better describes Bernie than anything resembling what Dump is doing IMO. All Dump does is just "Un-Form" whatever Obama did.
