At least you have changing demographics to blame. I live in Minnesota where people have always been crazy!

If more conservatives would move to California and outnumber the libs, we could take back that state.

Honestly. Why are the democrats running a statewide poll in California?

Do they need some reassurance? They seem a little worried!

I’m seeing fewer Obama signs this time around. A few diehard dolts are sporting “Obama 2012” on their cars. No yard signs that I’ve noticed. But I live in a relatively conservative area. In 2008, I was shocked by how many Obama signs and stickers were on display in this area.

In case people are wondering why California has moved so far to the left. Changing demographics.

Couldn't agree with you more. California changed for the worse in the '70s with a huge influx of New Yorkers and their politics. Barbara Boxer went to Brooklyn College. This was, at one time, was Reagan country.

Unless we can figure out a way to win a higher share of minority (Hispanic) voters

OR, we could deport the illegals, have a moratorium on legal immigration, and eliminate citizenship for anchor babies. All those Hispanics didn't fall from the sky. We let them in.

A note to my fellow Californians: Yes, Obama will win this State by a mile; but, you still have to get out and vote for Romney. You know how the Electoral College works and I know how it works. But, there is no shortage of dolts out there who don’t. We need to have a big popular vote win in addition to the Electoral College win. When that happens, words like “mandate” start to get tossed around. We need to see Romney win by well over 50% of the popular vote and we Californians can help to create that big majority.

(And, of course, there are plenty of other reasons on the ballot to vote. Say NO to Prop.s 30 and 38. We aren’t under-taxed. The sluts in Sacramento need to learn to stop spending. Say YES to Prop. 32 to muzzle the evil unions.)

anyone living in a blue state can move or accept the inevitable. You will be forced to contribute more and more to corrupt politicians, special interest groups and assorted parasites

Illegal immigration is not a good thing but we really should broaden our thinking whenever we talk about latinos or hispanics. It really doesn’t have to be so adversarial. Even legal immigrants feel like they are getting lumped in and we suffer from not having their support.

Doesn’t matter. All it takes is one vote extra passed away 150yo democrat vote.

California Poll: 0 53%, R 41%

President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden maintain a lead over Republican challengers Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan (53% to 41%) among California likely voters in the upcoming presidential election. Findings were similar last month and in July. The second presidential debate occurred while the survey was being conducted.
..................
There are likely two problems with this poll. If its like most of the rest — it oversamples democrats. Second, it does not reflect the big break toward romney that happened after the second debate.

Look at the (liberal) Washington Post poll trend map.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/polls/index.html

Its showing a cascade effect as Obama’s support collapses and Romneys support goes parobolic.

This presidential race is not going to be close. Obama voted today to encourage democrats to get out and vote early because the trend 2 weeks from now will be devastating for Obama.

In places like Ohio and North Carolina you can already see the college towns are not turning out for Obama. Same will happen in California. Young whites will simply not vote. Same goes for about 5% of blacks who go to church. So Obama will get 90% rather than 95% of the black vote. Peel off another 15% of the Mexican vote and 25% of the Jewish vote.

Obama will still likely win California but it will be a squeaker if he does.

Of course if some Ads were run in California featuring Clint Eastwood saying it ok to vote for Romney and then looking off camera and saying “no I still won’t do that to myself.” And then turning to the camera and saying “And you shouldn’t either.”

Then play the theme song of the good bad and the ugly.

Likely then California would go for romney.

Don’t expect sympathy from me. I live in DC. We means test wellfare recipients here. If you don’t own an investment bank that is down a few hundred million we won’t give you the time of day. Those guys have to share a parking place at Reagan. Our true friends, however, are the real down and outers who lost their investers a few hundred billion. They get private spots for their jets.

a loss of 10 or less could be considered a moral victory—sort of...

I'd guess that California is probably one of the places where a D+20 would be legitimate.

Gallup has Obama’s approval in California at 50.1 percent. No matter what other polls say, that says to me Obama could lose California if there is a tidal wave against him on election day. Even in California.

He’s weaker in California tham in places like New York and most of New England, where his approval is 55% or so except for New Hampshire and Maine. It’s not inconceivable Obama could lose Maine in a tidal wave election. That leaves Hawaii, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia.

Even among these states, Obama’s approval is below 50% in Rhode Island (49.2%) and only 50.9% in Delaware. Illinois is just 50.4%!
