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

the birth of modern america & onward election Frederick Douglas becomes the 1st African American president of the united states when he wins election to the office in 1892 only 30 years after the height of slavery in the United States. He narrowly wins reelection in 1896 against William Jennings Bryan. Douglas runs again in 1900 and even indicated his interest in a 4th run in 1904 but Grover Cleveland wins the 1900 election.

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.
