California Election Results 2018: Overall Analysis

California is as solid a blue state as there is in the United States. Arnold Schwarzenegger getting elected governor twice was an anomaly in what has been a steady and firm lurch to the left for the Golden State. Republicans are no longer a competitive force.

The GOP has once again been shut out of statewide offices and handed supermajorities to the Democrats in the legislature. Further, they are down to just ten seats in the US House out of 53. Believe it or not, this could have been worse.

Over the last 20 years, Republicans have been systematically defeated by Democrats almost everywhere in the state. Even former Republican bastions like San Diego and Orange Counties are changing. Looking ahead, California remains 55 reliable electoral votes for the blue column.
