    has many of the same problems as most states: outside of the big cities, and the college towns, it's mostly red.  You're right about Detroit and Wayne County.  Oakland's pretty red though, at least at the presidential level.  Really, outside of Detroit, the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area, and maybe Kalamazoo, it's all Republicans.

    Well, the UP's nominally blue, but it's swingy, and more blue dog than anything else.

    My point though is that California has the same issue, so it's kind of stupid to argue that it's radically different from states like WI.  The difference is, CA has more cities with large populations than Wisconsin does, so there are more Democratic voters.
