Perhaps nothing less than losing the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump could have motivated the left to brainstorm ways to tackle their popular vote problem. The left tends to gravitate to the coasts and until relatively recently have left "flyover" country to the deplorable unwashed masses.
Some on the left seem to be, in increasing numbers, coming to the conclusion that they need a Plan B in case their lunge to the progressive left
doesn't pan out.
To that end, leftists are positing a variety of ways to infiltrate red states and turn them blue. From moving numerous government offices to flyover country to congregating in and taking over the political and socio-cultural center of major cities in red states, the left seems to be alert to the fact that the massive influx of blue staters to red states can make a difference to the political fortunes of their party and, ultimately, of its agenda.
