Unlike Much Of The Country, California Still Solidly Blue After Midterm Elections

After a not-so-really-heated contest between the Republicans and Democrats, California still remains blue, and our State elected leaders are all Democrats:

Governor
Lieutenant Governor
Secretary of State
Controller
Treasurer
Attorney General
Insurance Commissioner

While our State Ballot Measures- Statewide Results had mixed results and the Democratic Party is no longer the super majority as the Republicans won a couple of seats in the Assembly, the Democratic Party is still in control.

The only downside to this is that Republicans can be obstructionists. During our quest to get a high-speed rail from San Francisco to California, Republicans stirred up the state and said that the rails were on fault lines and can be a hazard to the State. Yet earlier this year, we had an earthquake centered in the Northern Orange County City of Brea. A 5.1 earthquake caused $2.6 million in damage…possibly due to fracking.

Still, we, in California, got it easier than most. I’m hearing that Washington State’s Senate went red. Friends in Maine are considering moving here…even the Democratic members on Facebook are fuming. Many are preparing for what may come to pass after two years…some are even registering people to vote and getting voter I.D. from the police department…yes, from the police department and not the county registrars office. Meanwhile, very few are jumping ship and becoming Green or Peace and Freedom. Some are looking into IRV (Instant Runoff Voting). This was not a good voting season for Dems, because those who wanted change did not vote.

In California, we had a couple of failures, like no longer having a Democratic super majority, people voting down Proposition 45 and 46, because the corporations who backed this said that it would cost the consumers millions…yes, we have idiots too…but all-in-all, we did well.

According to the Los Angeles Daily News:

the state’s more than 17 million registered voters, only 5.3 million went to the polls — a turnout of 29.9 percent.

Yet through the 29.9 percent, we remained Blue. My prediction for California? If we manage to make it through the drought or avoid a major calamity like an earthquake and its after-effects, even prevent a man-made disaster like a Bomb Train, California will remain blue for a very long time.

Tim's first experience into journalism was at East Los Angeles College. Then Tim was a stringer for a local Japanese American Newspaper in Los Angeles. He then completed his Bachelors in Business and RECEIVED his MBA, but his desire to seek the truth has not been assuaged by fear of the 1% or their followers. When Tim isn't doing his liberal thing, he enjoys sitting back, relaxing and listening to Rush...the band folks!
