Bullshit. The entire Puget Sound region which consists of far more than Seattle. All of King County is blue. Snohomish County, blue. Pierce County, blue. Bellingham where Western Washington University is, blue. Ellensburg home of Central Washington U, blue. Pullman which houses Wazzu, I believe is blue, but not positive.
You're right in the regard that the Eastern part of the state is red, but the West side carries the elections due to the larger population, and they're almost all blue. There's a reason that state hasn't had a Republican governor in over 30 years. It's much more heavily populated on the west side of the state, and they are die hard liberals.
