The new Northern California would include 40 counties, including Sacramento, San Jose and San Francisco as well as the state's wine country and rural northern areas. With its 55 electors in the Electoral College, California has always been a stronghold for the Democratic Party.
Draper and his team argue California has become ungovernable because of economic and geographic diversity. Even if the measure does pass, it will require congressional approval to break up the existing state of California.
Draper's initiative calls for the division of California into the new states of "California", "Northern California" and "Southern California". While California's differences run deep, they may only be heightened in closer quarters. He backed proposals in 2012 and 2014 to create sixCalifornia states, but both initiatives fell short of gathering enough valid signatures. Southern California would have 12 counties with 13.9 million people.
Draper has reasons for wanting to slice and dice his home state. The proposal would give the people of Californiasix senators.

"Dems consider California to be a single golden empire, it would be hard for them to accept it as three golden empires".
"Meaningful improvement has proven impossible through the Sacramento system of top-down control", said the Cal 3website.
Vikram Amar, a law professor from the University of IL who had studied Draper's plan, told the Times that based on the last election, the Electoral College split by the plan would allow a Republican to win one of the states.
