By cross-referencing multiple different types of data, I can infer that at least 4.58% of Derpibooru's traffic comes from California alone. Maybe more. Here's what I took into consideration:
- Population density | California is the most pop. dense state at Around 40,000,000 people.
- Estimated number of current bronies in the US | 6 million median. 4 million small. 8 million large.
- Estimated percentage of US population being brony | About 1.83% median. 1.23% small. 2.44% large.
- Derpibooru total monthly visits | 5.21 million. 1.96 million are from the US.
- Estimated percentage of US bronies that visit Derpibooru | 32.67%
- Estimated Number of bronies in California | 732,000
- Estimated percentage of California bronies that visit Derpibooru monthly | 32.67%. Around 239,120.
- Estimated percentage of Derpibooru's traffic from California | 4.58%
The end percentage can go up or down depending on the estimated number of bronies in the US. 4.58% of traffic from a single location, when considering the entire planet, is a pretty big number. Imagine just getting rid of upwards of 5% of your traffic simply because you don't like 1 person who lives in that area. It sounds like a small number, but from an analytics standpoint, it's a pretty big hit for no real gain. I don't know of any company that would take such a risk, knowing the implications.

Interestingly, this is actually a case of percentages and real numbers getting mixed up. The percentage of Californians leaving California, by political party, are largely republican, followed by independent. Democrats in California are experiencing an uptick in percentage of voters purely because of this exodus.
The amount of Californians that have left, however, is not large. 650,000 people SOUNDS major, but when you consider all of the US states that are main destinations of the Californian exile, you get less than 1% if you spread it evenly.
No other state should worry about left-wing Californians entering their state. If there is some, it's the minority. States should be welcoming republican Californians because they've specifically fled California due to political and economic reasons, and red states are much better off in the price of living to wage ratio. Not to mention every other factor that is California specific (or SF and LA specific, really). If any left-wing Californians move to, say, Texas, they're going to move to Austin more than likely. I doubt left-wing Californians are so stupid as to try and change politics in red-major counties when their numbers are so incredibly low. They're smart enough to know that concentration of their politics gives them the best edge in any political election or decision. The possibility, for example, that Texas will become a swing-state is non-zero, and right now the number of Californians going to Texas, and the likelihood of even 1/10th of those being democrat, makes the notion completely ridiculous. However, this doesn't mean you shouldn't be on your guard. With enough people in key areas, yes, Texas could become a California, where the ruling votes come from the least number of counties, thus representing the least communities.
The democrat plan is to enslave you politically, economically, and mentally. DO NOT LET THEM.
