California stays Democrat.

Postby gtaca2005 » Wed Nov 03, 2010 10:06 am

Well this is surprising.

So far not one house seat in California has switched to the Republicans, at the time of this writing.

There are 2 left open, mine, and some other.

Mine, the Republican is ahead by a handful of votes, but look at this:

With one county left, that county is Liberal. When all is done, it may stay Dem.

What is going on here?

California is on the left coast of the US; and so it remains :D

1% overall reaming to be counted.

14% from Santa Clara county.

That county is 51% dem, 45% rep at this moment.

23 votes down.

Is the Dem advantage in that county enough to put McNerney over the top?

The way the trend is going here in California, I would say "yes." We'll know in a couple of hours, however. :)

Let's hope Jerry Brown keeps his promise when he said that he will govern this State not for Republicans, not for Democrats, but for Californians.

I am just stuck to my computer hoping McNerney wins. lol

So far only ONE seat went to the Republicans from the Dems in Cali.

By LESS than 1%

In a less hostile to Dem political climate I am sure the Democrats will take it back. If things are more favourable to Democrats in 2012, look to see CA 20 to return to being blue.

For now, I am worried about my district. lol I really think the amount left and the extent the dems are ahead in that county can throw him ahead, but you never know. I came into tonight expecting him to lose, as the polls indicated. Just the fact that it is this close has me full of hope for Cali. It isn't so red after all.

EDIT

I found one source saying he lost, but then I found another saying he won:

We will see.... Recounts to be expected.

EDIT:

SFGate reporting:

Jerry McNerney | Dem | 82,124 | 47.5%
David Harmer | GOP | 82,003 | 47.4%

WOOOOO WOOOOOO

This topic is like one for "Fire stays hot". :lol:

Even if you throw ice at it, fire isn't going to be cold. That was a metaphor, by the way.

There are still 20,000 mail in ballots to count, I fear that vote-by-mail ballots will favor the Republican. I think older voters out number young voters there. We will see what happens.

But with Prop 25 passing, and Dems strengthening their power in the state senate, Democrats have complete control over the state budget. Especially with a Democratic Governor.

Also, if would seem to be a clean sweep across all state wide races for the Dems. Only Republicans to win in California was that one hose seat flip, and they other house holds that they already had.

EDIT:

Mother f*cker...

There are about 25,000 still to be counted in San Joaquin County. Election workers have 28 days to finish the job. A recount would only come after the first count is finished, and only if one of the candidates were to pay for the work.


From the CONSERVATIVE area no less. :x

-Bumping

California 11: Rep. Jerry McNerney (D) leads Republican David Harmer by 121 votes in the tightest race in the country - and tens of thousands of mail-in and provisional ballots likely remain to be counted. Election officials won't begin counting them until tomorrow, at the earliest.


Please, this is a LONG SHOT. Most those ballots are in the conservative county and more older people vote by mail.

I haz a sad. :(

ANOTHER BUMP

Seems California REALLY stayed Democrat this year. My congressman has just won, and the one I thought that lost, won when mail in ballots were counted! :D

The tide really did NOT touch this state. :)

Everyone is stupid. It was up in the polls by double digits only a couple weeks before it was down by around 8.
