Kotkin thinks things will only get worse as out-migration changes the mix of the electorate:
As progressive policies drive out moderate and conservative members of the middle class, California's politics become even more left-wing. It's a classic case of natural selection, and increasingly the only ones fit to survive in California are the very rich and those who rely on government spending. In a nutshell, "the state is run for the very rich, the very poor, and the public employees."To borrow from another well-known 1970s lyric: Greece is the word.
