If there’s one state that most everyone would consider in the bank for Barack Obama, it might well be California—any more to the left and the state would be afloat in the Pacific (thus fulfilling the fantasies of many). So why are the early voting returns telling a different story?

According to RedState.com, 104,000 Republicans have voted early or by mail-in ballot, compared with 105,000 Democrats.
