While I am not the first to bring it up, if my customer starts the conversation, I will tell him/her with my opinions. That being said, I have never lost a customer because of my opinions on politics or religion. What people like about me is my honesty and openness and I have found that even if we don't agree, we create a bond with each other. People trust my common sense.

No I dont.  The reality (and I tell them this) is that I dont really pay enough attention to it to really speak to it.  Some people are extremely passionate about their political position...me not so much.  Being in California, it will always be a democratic state...all of the Electoral votes will go to the democratic nominee.  enough said

No.  Not unless they explicitly let me know they're of the same political strata as I am.  The last thing I want is to get into any conflicts with clients.  But I have found that those that have the same beliefs as me have become some of my best clients and good friends over the years.
