Proposal To Split California Into Three States Makes The November Ballot

Hannah Bleau

We often joke about how our border wall needs to extend all the way up around California.

Jokes aside, Cali is problematic. Democrats have a stronghold on the state. Liberal policies are driving it into the ground. It’s not sustainable.

So there’s a proposal… divide California into three states. It’s on the table. It’s on the November ballot.

The three states would be California, Northern California and Southern California.


Tim Draper, a billionaire Silicon Valley venture capital investor, sponsored the ballot measure to divide America’s most populous state into three jurisdictions, the Mercury News of San Jose, Calif., reported.

— California

 would be made up of six mainly coastal counties, including Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.

— Northern California would include 40 counties from Santa Cruz to the Oregon border, including San Francisco and Sacramento, the state’s current capital.

— Southern California would comprise 12 counties, including Fresno, Kern, Orange and San Diego counties.

Would this even make a difference, politically speaking? I mean, think about it. Would we just end up with 6 Democratic Senators instead of two?

I don’t know. Something to think about.

It doesn’t seem likely anyway.

SurveyUSA poll found that 72 percent of registered California voters opposed the proposal, while only 17 percent support it, the report said.

Even if voters approved the plan, it would still require approval from the California Assembly and Senate, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Then the plan would have to overcome likely court challenges — and still win approval from Congress, the Hill reported.
