We have the same problem with NY State, dcw. ..And I was just south of the NY border, doing business on Saturday and found the business operator saying The same about Philadelphia..which overpowers the rest of the state with their liberal voters.
There are several plans for separating NY state, some called "West New York" some called "New Amsterdam", of which the map is shown below. Neither would be expected to exit the U.S., but form 2 seperate states..same for Pennsylvania as many there see it. The difference between how the Philly/NY City people think, and the rest of the state thinks is monumental. We would have the vast bulk of the land and natural resources, while they would get the vast bulk of the population...fair trade as I see it !
