California is widely understood to be a solidly Democrat state. All statewide elected officials are Democrats, including both United States senators and the governor. No Republican has been elected statewide since 2006. The Public Policy Institute of California reports that most Californians from coast to interior feel their taxes are too high, and Californians almost everywhere believe immigrants are a benefit to the state. Concern about the cost of housing shows sharp divides between the coast and the interior, though Californians are concerned in most parts of the state.
The cost of living, homelessness, illegal immigration, tax reform and economic growth weigh heavily on most Californians. Some of the radical positions held by democrat leadership throughout the state; leave many residents looking for a new direction.
