DISTRICT UPDATES

 

Well, the Cubbies were able to even it up last night, and Kings beat the Suns in Phoenix in their regular season opener. The first regular season game at Golden One Arena is tonight.

Lots of chatter yesterday about my race rating changes. It's funny. Some campaigns get angry when ratings changes go against them, and some are happy. Many candidates want to have the perception of being slightly behind or tied, as that drives turnout and last-minute money. Read the email you're getting these days about the desperation of candidates who are generally safe. Meanwhile, if a district moves from "Leans" to "Likely" against a candidate, campaigns fear that it will dissuade voters from turning out.

Let's be candid, entities that issue race ratings--from Cook Political Report to Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball to the Rothenberg Report to the lowly Nooner/AroundTheCapitol.com--don't do so to drive voter turnout. While The Nooner has over 9,300 subscribers, it's largely an insider audience, as are those who look to the national ratings of congressional races.

Yesterday's changes were largely based on the vote-by-mail (VBM) ballot returns through Tuesday, which account statewide for 13.8% of all VBM registrants. The changes generally reflected the performance of VBM returns compared to 2012's presidential general, considering party performance and that of Latino and Asian VBM returns. Other factors are also included.

As I wrote yesterday, this cycle I'm doing much more dynamic race changes. Some of these disttricts could change back based on 1) tonight's campaign finance reports, 2) the daily VBM returns, 3) the new voter registration numbers expected late next week, and 4) reports of and financial reports reflecting ground operations.

POLL POSITION: California poll: Trump’s numbers dropping into ‘uncharted territory’ [Matthew Artz @ MercNews]:

According to a new poll from the Public Policy Institute of California, in just one month Democrat Hillary Clinton’s lead over Trump has soared from 16 to 26 points as the brash billionaire’s campaign has imploded amid allegations that he’s a serial groper. He now has the support of only 28 percent of likely California voters, the poll found.

. . .

While Democrats have little chance of winning the 30 seats needed to retake the House, they could make a bigger dent than expected in California with four Republican incumbents now facing competitive races: Jeff Denham and David Valadao in the Central Valley, Steve Knight in Los Angeles County, and Darrell Issa in the San Diego suburbs.

Here are some of the poll's results:

Jerry Brown job approval:

  • 55% approve
  • 24 disapprove

Legislature job approval:

  • 46% approve
  • 33 disapprove
  • 20 don’t know

  • 68% approve
  • 29 disapprove
  • 3 don’t know

Congress job approval:

  • 31% approve
  • 59 disapprove
  • 10 don’t know

Democratic Party job approval:

  • 53% favorable
  • 37 unfavorable
  • 9 don’t know

Republican Party job approval:

  • 23% favorable
  • 69 unfavorable
  • 8 don’t know

California right direction/wrong direction:

  • 54% right direction
  • 39 wrong direction
  • 7 don’t know

California economy over next 12 months:

  • 47% good times
  • 38 bad times
  • 15 don’t know

Presidential vote:

  • 54% Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine
  • 28 Donald Trump and Mike Pence
  • 5 Gary Johnson and Bill Weld
  • 5 Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka

US Senate:

  • 42% Kamala Harris, a Democrat, Attorney General of California
  • 20 Loretta Sanchez, a Democrat, United States Congresswoman
  • 18 neither/would not vote for US senator (volunteered)
  • 20 don’t know

Prop 51 (School bonds):

  • 46% yes
  • 41 No
  • 12 don’t know

Prop 55 (Tax extension for schools/health care):

  • 59% yes
  • 31 no
  • 10 don’t know

  • 56% yes
  • 38 no
  • 6 don’t know

Prop 64 (Marijuana legalization):

  • 55% yes
  • 38 no
  • 6 don’t know

DOING THE LAUNDRY: You can see where the sights of the Democratic Party is by the large unlimited contributions (both direct and in-kind) are being made. Here's a sample from yesterday:

Newman For State Senate 2016
 
Cook-Kallio For Assembly 2016
 
Muratsuchi For Assembly 2016
Assembly District 66 (D)
 
Medina For Assembly 2016; Abigail
Assembly District 40 (D)
  
Stern For Senate 2016
Senate District 27 (D)
 
Cervantes For State Assembly 2016; Sabrina
Assembly District 60 (D)
 
Ervin For State Senate 2016
 
Smith For Assembly 2016; Christy

The top recipient of Republican Party money yesterday ws Catharine Baker (R-AD16), who received $12,200.

SD21 (Santa Clarita-Antelope Vly): Ervin and Wilk vie for open 21st Senate District seat [Beau Yarbrough @ SBSun] - “A state assemblyman and aeronautical engineer are competing to see who will replace the late state Sen. Sharon Runner, R-Victorville, who died in July. Democrat Johnathon Ervin, an Air Force reservist and aerospace engineer working for Raytheon, is facing Assemblyman Scott Wilk, R-Santa Clarita, for the open seat.”

AD38 (Simi Valley/Santa Clarita): Republican candidate faces sexual harassment allegations in heated Santa Clarita Assembly race [Christine Mai-Duc and Javier Panzar @ LAT] - “Less than two weeks before the general election, allegations of sexual harassment emerged Tuesday against Republican Dante Acosta, a candidate for Assembly in the Santa Clarita Valley. The accusations in this previously little-noticed race threaten to touch the campaigns of two prominent Southern California Republicans with close ties to Acosta, one running for state Senate and the other for Congress.”

PROP 57: Why Gov. Jerry Brown is staking so much on Proposition 57 and prison sentences [John Myers @ LAT] - “In some ways, Proposition 57 is a proxy for a larger battle over prison sentences. There are sharp disagreements between Brown and many district attorneys over the legacy of California’s decadeslong push for new and longer mandatory sentences, a system in which flexibility is often limited to which crimes a prosecutor seeks to pursue in court. The warring sides have painted the Nov. 8 ballot measure in the starkest of terms, a choice for voters between redemption and real danger.”

SPLIT DECISION: Together in sickness and in health — but not the voting booth [Evan Halper @ LAT] - “In most elections, married couples tend to vote alike. But this year, polls indicate that married women are spurning the Republican nominee at levels not seen in decades. In households around the country, husbands and wives who have traditionally voted the same ticket are parting ways at the ballot box, creating tension — and denial.”

WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY: California's voter registration deadline has passed, but not for new U.S. citizens [Sophia Bollag @ LAT] - “The voter registration deadline for most Californians was Monday. But people … who become naturalized citizens after the deadline are allowed to register and vote until polls close on election day if they provide documentation proving their citizenship.”

STEEERIKE! California state workers to start casting ballots on possible strike [Adam Ashton @ SacBee] - “A strike vote for members of California state government’s largest union is scheduled to begin next week, according to announcements from SEIU Local 1000. The vote is scheduled to run from Monday, Oct. 31 to Friday, Nov. 11 at more than 50 different locations around the state. A list of polling sites is posted at seiu1000.org. SEIU Local 1000 is trying to gain leverage in contract negotiations for the 95,000 workers it represents.”

SIN AGUA: Northern California is seeing two or three times more rain than normal. So why is Southern California so dry? [Joseph Serna @ LAT] - “Despite a rainstorm set to hit the Southland this week, the region continues to face an unprecedented lack of precipitation, recording only 60% of average rainfall this month. By contrast, communities from the Bay Area north to the Oregon border have recorded 200% to 300% of the average this month, according to the National Weather Service.” 

HOTEL PROTECTION ACT: San Diego to consider sweeping Airbnb ban [Roger Showley @ SDUT] - “Most Airbnb and other short-term rentals would be banned in San Diego under a proposal released Wednesday by outgoing Councilwoman Sherri Lightner. The City Council is expected to take up the measure at a special meeting at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Golden Hill next to City Hall downtown. The proposal, which would need five votes to pass, comes in a simple definition change in the city municipal code. Visitors and tourists would be reclassified as transients if they rented a home for less than 30 days.”

BIG BET: Your California pension dollars at work in Las Vegas [Dale Kasler @ SacBee] - “CalPERS is betting big on Las Vegas real estate, purchasing a glitzy retail and nightlife complex on the Strip where entertainers such as Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez regularly perform. California’s giant public pension fund recently bought Las Vegas’ high-profile Miracle Mile Shops for a reported $1.1 billion. It’s one of the largest real estate deals CalPERS has made since the property bubble burst nearly a decade ago.”

#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to Steve Castellanos and Assemblyman Kansen Chu!
