Democrats Avert Disaster in Crucial Calif. Primaries

Democrats Avert Disaster in Crucial Calif. Primaries

Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newson, a Democrat, easily advanced to the general election, with business executive John Cox coming in second.

With primary-election ballots still being tallied across the state, things are looking good for the California Republican Party - that is, not catastrophically bad. He's been examining the pre-election polling data for more than a year.

Dozens of women on Tuesday won congressional and gubernatorial nominations as voters in eight USA states chose candidates ahead of November's elections, including several who notched firsts in a year boasting a historic number of female contenders. How did we get here?

Primaries in eight states ended Tuesday night, further setting the stage for the midterms this November, but some of the races won't be decided for a while.

Trump tweeted early Tuesday urging Republicans to head to the polls.

After that, our poll found a significant swing among GOP voters toward Cox and away from Travis Allen, his leading Republican challenger. This, in my opinion, vaulted Cox into a strong second-place position behind Newsom on Election Day.

Incumbent Republican Rep. Martha Roby came under fierce fire in her GOP primary for withdrawing her endorsement of Trump in the 2016 presidential race, after the after the Access Hollywood tape revealed his boasts about grabbing women by the genitals without their consent.

By overwhelming backing a left-leaning candidate like Newsom over a relative moderate like Villaraigosa, the Democrats have left the Republican Party an opening in California, he said. Kevin de Léon (D-Los Angeles); incumbent Sen.

Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican who has come under fire for his close ties to Russian Federation, captured the lead in a tight race against both Democratic and Republican opponents.

About 62 percent of votes were cast against Proposition 70. That was identical to the level found in our final pre-election Berkeley IGS Poll. That is a clear advantage for the Democrats who sport four registered voters to every one registered Republican.

Furthermore, Republicans were not locked out of all major statewide races, which would have depressed their turnout in the general election.

Mark DiCamillo, director of the Berkeley IGS Poll. "That's not much different to the proportion in previous election cycles".

And by a whopping 25 percent margin, voters say they're more likely to back a congressional candidate who promises to serve as a check on Trump than less likely.

Stephanie Taylor, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, said there was a reason why Mrs. Newsroom's campaign also boosted Cox, fearing an expensive battle against Villaraigosa in the general election. Those who had primaries on Tuesday were largely successful. "Republicans feel that way in California about a liberal state that's getting crazier and more liberal". How did this play out? Democrats struggled to unite behind a single candidate in the race. They also said Republican candidates combined for more votes than Democrats in six of the seven competitive California congressional districts.

Former Santa Monica Mayor Richard Bloom was unopposed in his race to be re-elected to the California State Assembly.

The San Francisco mayor's race is unique and very close. She's also co-host of the Political Breakdown podcast, and she's here to bring us up to speed.

Right now, things are really too close to definitively name a victor. Mr. Turner served just three months in jail, sparking worldwide outrage over what many felt was a sentence that was too lenient.
