Earlier this year, columns promoting the proposal to split California’s presidential delegates in a bid to give the GOP 20-25 delegates in the 2008 presidential election was being touted on the Flash Report as “the Democrats worst nightmare.”
Ah, no.Ã‚Â Not really.
According to a new poll, Californians overwhelming reject this blatant Republican power grab.Ã‚Â This story from the California Progress Report reported these statistics:
Here is how bad the Republican electoral power grab initiative is doing – it has managed to unite Californians throughout the state against the measure. In fact, every demographic group and region of the state rejects this measure.Opposition is quite even throughout the state as majorities of every region of California are voting no on the electoral power grab initiative:Los Angeles County – 24% yes to 52% no
Suburban Los Angeles – 21% yes to 57% no
San Francisco Bay Area – 20% yes to 51% no
San Diego – 18% yes to 52% no
Sacramento and North – 23% yes to 56% no
Central Valley – 24% yes to 52% no
With every story like “this is the Dems worst nightmare” to a decided lack of coverage of the Carona indictment, the Flash Report loses more credibility as a reliable source of political reality.
