Upward Mobility at Cal State LA

 

Happy Sunday Funday! No World Cup today, but the Giants hope to start a winning streak against the Cards at 1:05 with MadBum on the mound.

A subscriber pointed out that I screwed up the email on a subscription/renewal special of $35/year. The subject line was apparently missing and it looked like just a blank message from me. Here is the link

For those who have renewed/subscribed at the regular rate of $49.99, I'll be extending your subscription by three months. 

My goal is to expand the paid subscriber base enough to make $35 the standard price. Only 10% of readers are paid, so just a little bit more would make that possible. The increase over the decade from $29.99 to $49.99 weren't just inflation. The biggest jump is because it was a five-day-a-week hobby to a seven-day-a-week full-time gig. I'm not complaining, as I love our daily conversations.

Anyway, moving on. Remember the hubbub before the primary predicting turnout in the June 5 primary election was going to be a historic low?

Uh-huh:

  • June 2018: 37%
  • June 2014: 25.2%
  • June 2010: 33.3%
  • June 2006: 33.6%
  • June 2002: 34.6%

I'm still doing analysis on a county-by-county basis to see if the uptick is because of the Voters Choice Act counties of Madera, Napa, Nevada, Sacramento and San Mateo counties.

CALmatters's Byrhonda Lyons looks at it and the preliminary analysis is maybe or maybe not.

I honestly don't know what propelled turnout. Obviously, I follow elections far more than the average voter. To no offense of my friends who were on the ballot--incumbents and challengers--on both sides, it was really not all that exciting. Obviously, it was confusing with so many candidates on every ballot with the jungle primary, so many "analysts" said voters would give up and not cast a ballot. 

Nevertheless, voters said "screw you all" and voted. The one that people pointed to was the gubernatorial election where so much money was spent to propel Antonio Villaraigosa over John Cox. There is no evidence that was the case. Again, I need more time with the data, but I just think we have a more pissed off electorate on all sides. And, voting is easier. Indeed, we had five counties ditch polling places, but it is far beyond that. Election day of 7am-8pm on a Tuesday has turned in to election month, and that appears to be resulting in more participation.

It also completely changes how campaigns are (or should be) run.

SCOTUS WITH THE MOSTUS: In the LA Times, John Myers writes today that, while the Supreme Court appointment may change abortion law with a revisit of Roe v. Wade/Planned Parenthood v. Casey, things likely won't change in California, largely due to a 1972 state ballot measure placing in the constitution a guaranteed right to privacy.
