|Democrats Kamala Harris and Loretta Sanchez|
"Corruptus in Extremis"
- In a corrupt midnight deal former California GOP Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger went along with abolishing party primaries to help crush the voting power of Conservatives. Only the top two vote getters would move on to the general election.
- Now we may see an open U.S. Senate seat with two Democrats only on the November ballot. As a bonus your write-in vote has been declared illegal and smaller opposition parties like the Greens and Libertarians are banned.
- Other nations that have one-party elections are Communist China, Communist Korea and Communist Cuba. But I am just a "crazy" Blogger. What do I know?
(KABC/Survet USA) - In the open, non-partisan, Top-2 primary for United States Senator, Republicans Tom Del Beccaro, Ron Unz and Duf Sundheim split conservative voters, paving the way for Democrats Kamala Harris and Loretta Sanchez to finish 1 and 2, and advance to an 11/08/16 runoff.
Democrat Harris gets 29% today, Democrat Sanchez 18%.
Harris gets 32% of the white vote, 58% of the black vote, 19% of the Latino vote and 29% of the Asian vote. Sanchez gets 11% of the white vote, 18% of the black vote, 36% of the Latino vote and 9% of the Asian vote.
Del Beccaro at 10%, Unz at 8% or Sundheim at 7% could overtake Sanchez if Latinos vote in smaller numbers than here shown. A best-case scenario for the 3 Republican Senate candidates had been that the outcome of the Democratic presidential primary was a foregone conclusion suppressing Democratic turnout statewide.
Harris' support is older, which in a primary often translates to be "more reliable." Sanchez' support is younger. Harris runs 1st in all 4 regions of the state; she leads Sanchez and Del Beccaro by 35 points in the Bay Area, leads Sanchez by 9 points in the Central Valley, leads Sanchez by 3 points in greater Los Angeles, and leads Sanchez by a nominal 1 point in the Inland Empire.
