Why was this state so close and not a significant victory for Bush?

Because even though California was at the time reliably Republican, the Republican-won races were always close (unless a Californian was on the presidential ticket).

California was usually a nominal Republican state, unless Nixon or Reagan was on the ticket.  After 1988, when Reagan was still important, California became a soldily Democratic state.
