“I just came back from LA. Ithaca is still worse”
Seriously? L.A. to visitors think Beverly Hills, Melrose, Burbank, OC...but when I bring them to downtown L.A. and ‘outward’, you’d think you were in mexico.
As you, yourself, have just demonstrated, LA still has some diversity. Ithaca is consistently and almost uniformly far left.
For example, in LA’s last election, the Republican got 27% of the vote. In last night’s election in Ithaca, she got about seven percent.
