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

Just for the fun of it, summer 2014 reading: I am taking college courses both in July & did in May. I have read all of the material for those. Besides that I read Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story & the book on Kennedy & Nixon by Chris Matthews both cover to cover & before that One Last Kiss: The Chris Coleman Story. All very informative & entertaining books. I have started Rendevouz With Destiny By Craig Shirley.

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.
