Upstate NY is the underutilized golden ticket for right wing movements.The northeast has been pretty strongly in the left’s pocket for a long time. If you live in new york then you are fully aware of NYC’s vice grip on the political landscape. Voting becomes less effective as you get a way from the local and get to the statewide scale. However in 2014 , new york overwhelming voted for the GOP . But the democrats did secure the governor slot . The democrats have 4 major enclaves that ensure their dominance . New york city , Albany , Troy , and Syracuse. Upstate new york has a conservative counter culture and a history of failed secession attempts . Upstate NY right wingers are aware of how NYC alone decides elections . You’ll hear a lot of anti immigration and anti gun control sentiment from people in this part of NY . A movement that is advocating an america first and traditional values worldview could see some success in NY congressional districts 21 , 22 , and 24 . Creating right wing enclaves in the northeast would be very useful .
