Could California Go Red?
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?

The polls have shown California to be Obama country for months. And the pundits are still predicting a sea of blue. But there has been a lot of chatter on the political blogs about an interesting finding on early voting in the state.
According to RedState.com, 104,000 Republicans have voted early or by mail-in ballot, compared with 105,000 Democrats.
