Ten States that are Nearly Wards of the State,
American in Japan says
I'd say...9 Red States and 1 "Purple State
NM: Purple, maybe blue
LA: Red, but there's still some Dixiecrat folks left. But definitely Red attitudes even if sometimes vote Dem due to historical reasons
WV: Like LA. Red in thinking but often vote Dem. It's like the Southern Strategy passed by them somehow.
SD: Red, although ND and SD had 4 Dem senators between them 10 years ago
So by my count:
The overall point remains, that blue states are more prosperous and subsidize red states. I just saw another article that this is also true at the congressional district level. Certainly we see this in CA where the blue areas of Silicon Valley and LA subsidize the red Central Valley. And the Central Valley residents decry the moves to charge them for scarce water as "Socialism!!"

Los Angeles and San Francisco - houses are overvalued by around 16%,
My rentals are cash flow positive and are not in one of the fortress areas of the San Francisco Bay area. Of course it helps that I was heavily buying when people like you were telling me not to do so
Iwog, the article is about sf msa, which includes CC and Alameda counties. And Concord. So yes, SF city is different, but, this article is about the msa.
