Seeing as much of California is liberal, that would give the democrats a bunch more seats in the U.S. Senate. Say four of the 6 states would have liberals U.S. Senators, and the conservatives control two of the states, the democrats would gain at least two seats. So, even if Colorado (which has talked of splitting) splits into two states, one where the liberals live, and the other where the conservatives resides, the Democrats would have a even bigger majority in the Senate, and this country will move further to the left.

And Texas is already on the verge of moving out of the RED column and more of a PURPLE state, liberals will rule the US, as the conservatives get marginalized.

"Times map of county-level changes in the U.S. presidential vote from 2008 to 2012 shows almost every county in California shifting red in the Republican direction. In most counties, the change was minor."
