Seattle & Washington State

The state of Washington has a reputation for being a rather “liberal” state, in American terms. There are many “alternative” groups of people here. But actually, the state is rather divided into two half's: On one side of The Cascades - the mountain range dividing Washington State - people are mostly liberal. On the other side of the range there is a higher concentration of rightwing voters than elsewhere. It was quite clear during the last mid-term election a few weeks ago. On the TV screens it was all blue on one side (Democratic) and all red (Republican) on the other side. In my native Denmark the party colours are vice versa... It takes some getting used to! :-)
