Politics in Placer County

A few days ago a friend from Chicago asked about the politics where I live. I live in Placer County which has a higher percentage of registered Republicans than Orange County. The further north you go in California the more conservative the voters are. People joke that Placer Democrats could meet in a phone booth (if they still existed). So that pretty much says it all. I knew this when I moved here.

That balance may change as more and more retirees from the Bay Area move to various retirement communities here.

Is there any sense in your area that the Gulf problems will have some impact on them?

Or do they believe that there will be no increase in taxes?
