No, Idaho won’t become more liberal as Californians migrate here.

most of the newcomers are as conservative or almost as conservative as native Idahoans

Not according to some new research from the Blue Review.  While the state remains one of the fastest growing places in America, most of the newcomers are as conservative or almost as conservative as native Idahoans.

Overall, the figures show the new people may be slightly more liberal, but not enough to change overwhelming Republican dominance.  When you isolate just the Californians coming to Idaho, it turns out the immigrants as a percentage are more conservative than people born in the Gem State.
