    Watsonville, for example, has a fair D lean because its hispanic population are citizens and vote.

    The really highly productive areas are the ones more likely to have hispanic citizens that vote and/or sustainable organic farming communities and/or wine-country type demographics that add some blue and purple to the maps.

    Its' the more marginal areas (arid I-5 corridor that needs lots of irrigation piped in from elsewhere, the northern mountain region starting at about Redding etc) that are red.  Plus Orange County and some of the richer suburb/exurbs.

      with the exceptions of bakersfield and redding. orange county has really changed over the past decade or two, politically.
