SATURDAY POLITICS: CA Democrats Dominating Statewide Races

Leveraging their significant edge in voter registration, Democratic candidates are dominating all statewide races in California. The latest figures show that registered voters in California are 43.4% Democrat, 28.2% Republican, 23.1% No Party Preference. The respected Field poll released their final poll before Tuesday's election and it shows how deep blue a state California is. Governor Jerry Brown is romping to an easy re-election for an unprecedented fourth term and carrying the rest of the Democratic slate of statewide candidates with him to victory.
The final pre-election Field Poll completed earlier this week finds Brown enjoying a 21-point preference advantage, 54% to 33%, over his Republican opponent Neel Kashkari. Since the June open primary in which Kashkari finished second and earned the right to challenge Brown in the November general election, Brown has maintained large double-digit leads over Kashkari ranging narrowly from 16 to 21 points. 
The latest poll also finds that in the six other partisan statewide election contests to be decided next week – Lt. Governor, Attorney General, State Controller, State Treasurer, Secretary of State and Insurance Commissioner – the Democratic candidate holds the lead over the Republican by margins ranging from seven to thirteen points.
It's nice to see that the nation's largest state and my home state has decisively rejected the Republican agenda. Sadly, it looks like the same can not be said for races happening around the country in red and purple states.
