It just occurs that if California manages to secede, there's never going to be a lefty liberal president in the United states again.
California would take 55 electoral votes with them if they left.
There's several ways they could break things up in Congress and thus the electoral college.
They could simply dump 53 representatives and 2 senators from Congress and leave the electoral counts alone.
They could redistribute those 53 house seats to keep the 435 count the same, but there'd still be 98 senators.
Of course, if California gets to leave, expect other states to demand out too. Texas comes to mind.
Hmmmm, perhaps the south WILL rise again. Who knew?
