Liberals are too clustered in major cities, mainly in blue states. This is why Hillary Clinton can get 3 million more votes and still lose the election. Progressives and liberals are not spread out enough across the country in large enough numbers to win more elections.
What can liberals and progressives do to turn more of the map blue? The short answer is…MOVE!
In this podcast, we talk to people in places that aren’t blue. Sometimes it’s liberals who are on the ground in deep red territory. Other times, it’s people who don’t agree with liberals. But always with the goal of answering these questions:
What will bring more liberal voters to red states?
How can liberals persuade voters who are already there?
The Clusterf*cked Podcast is an exploration of a new liberal movement…that must be literal!

Great podcast - interesting guests
Love to hear from voices that don’t get a lot of mainstream coverage. Found this pod by happenstance and I’m so glad I did! Keep it up!
I am a Floridan of almost 30 years (so basically my whole life) and I don’t want more liberals than we already have. They move here and then they screw up the property taxes and they bring with them their crazy liberal ideas that we have avoided and mess up the perfect paradise. Why did they even bother moving away from places like New York and other similar places if all they want to do is turn us into the places they just left???? Where is the sense in that? Leave us alone and stop traveling here for vacations. If you wanna vacay obey the rules. I haven’t been able to enjoy my own state for like 7 months and missed my own vacation at the beginning of the year.
IF YOU DON’T FOLLOW THE RULES YOU ARE HURTING OUR ABILITY TO RECOVER FROM COVID!!!!! PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND AND BE CONSIDERATE WHETHER YOU’RE LIBERAL, CONSERVATIVE, BLACK, WHITE, HISPANIC AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. WE REALLY WOULD APPRECIATE IT!!😁😁
