Washington or Oregon are the most politically polarized states.

And, red and blue talk past each other on sex:

Social liberals in the country’s “blue states” tend to support sex education and are not particularly troubled by the idea that many teen-agers have sex before marriage, but would regard a teen-age daughter’s pregnancy as devastating news. And the social conservatives in “red states” generally advocate abstinence-only education and denounce sex before marriage, but are relatively unruffled if a teen-ager becomes pregnant, as long as she doesn’t choose to have an abortion.

No matter what happens next week, the people that disagree with you will still exist, will still be engaged, and will try to make their political world happen.
