    Particularly in Ventura and Ojai, as well as some more upscale white liberals in Thousand Oaks.

    •  Ojai's pretty small though (0+ / 0-)

      Ventura makes sense.  Does Thousand Oaks have more liberal white voters than other large suburbs in SoCal like Rancho Cucamonga or Fullerton, in your opinion?  If so why?

      Idiosyncratic, pro-establishment. Liberal, not progressive. For the poor, the children, the planet, and the rule of law.
      UC Berkeley; I think I'm in the conservative half of this city.

    •  Ventura is more central coast than ... (2+ / 0-)

      "southern California" in the sense used here.

      It's partly like Santa Barbara, partly like the San Fernando Valley, partly like Orange County... and close to zero like Riverside or Imperial.

      All the problems we face in the United States today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian. -- Pat Paulsen

      •  My Socal defintion (1+ / 0-)
        Recommended by:

        Includes Ventura County which is kind of a mix of Santa Barbara, OC and SFV. Ventura (city) is like SB while Thousand Oaks, Camarillo and Simi Valley do have some of the OC in it (but more OCish in Simi Valley).

        I would put Ventura County in SoCal because it does geographically fit. My definition actually extends to Santa Barbara because it is geographically close to the same latitude as Santa Clarita but the Santa Ynez Mountains are kind of the boundary between SoCal and Central California in my opinion.

        Seriously though, it is tough to decide which area Santa Barbara (city) belongs in.
