This is a very real possibility. I don’t care about national popular vote polls as much as polls in swing states that will determine the election.
a good summary
Blue states were already subsidizing red states before Trump’s vindictive tax cuts that punished states that didn’t vote for him. Now NY, NJ, and CT are suing IRS for blocking a workaround to the $10,000 limit on state/local tax deductions.
The tax cuts could also further penalize blue states by causing people to move from them.
