The Unusually Cool Summer in California Reminds Me… August 10, 2010
The unusually cool summer in California reminds me of one of my pet theories: that cold winters drive white Anglos to vote economically “progressive,” whereas cold or cool summers push them to liberalism on social issues. This applies to overall climate. What I don”t know is whether an unusually cold or hot casino summer will have an effect on the next November election. There isn”t anything on abortion or same sex marriage on the ballot this November; the only “social issue” is legalizing weed, and I wonder if the dynamics of that issue are the same.
