There's no statement of vote on the SoS web page for the 1978 general election.  Sad

The only county I found whose site reported election results from 1978 was Shasta County (50.03% Yes, 49.97% No).

One would probably need to visit a library or contact the SoS to get the county results.

Bump

I saw Milk today and they said it lost by 2-to-1, but had it carrying Imperial with 69%.  Otherwise it looked like a standard social liberal/conservative mix except it lost in Glenn.  wtf?  Oh, and it was also two-to-one no in Los Angeles despite being almost 70% in Imperial?  And then there was something about the results vs. the "polls," and I got totally confused

Anyway, if anyone knows, I'd be very interested...

If it only won Shasta by a hair one imagines it went down hard.

I saw Milk yesterday.

Crazy.

They totally ignored the riots and counter-riots that occurred once White was sentenced.

Imperial County is the most populist county in California.  61% Obama, but 70% Prop. 8.

Yeah, way Hispanic, but my point was it coudn't have failed 2-to-1 statewide with that map (even if it did lose Glenn?!) and failed 2-to-1 in Los Angeles while it won 2-to-1 in Imperial.  L.A.'s Hispanic community isn't that pro-gay now, and it certainly wasn't then

Milk was dead at that point and the movie was was meant to focus on his literal life only.

What are you talking about Duke?  Things are great so far.   I do have to cling to God no matter what.  I have nothing against this at all,  but in my class there are 9 blacks and 4 whites.  African Americans are quite prevalent in that part of Tulsa.  I don't mind it at all,  but it is an interesting fact in white Oklahoma.

Prop 6 also lost in Orange County, which was far more conservative than it is today.

I know this post is very old, but I personally am seeking the information requested here. Mainly just on individual county results which I would like to compare to Prop 8 results. I was able to find a map which indicated the measure failed 59% to 41% not quite the 2-1 margin the movie indicated. Perhaps the absentee ballots were not counted on election day and it appeared to be 2-1 in the first reporting. It did fail in Orange, Fresno, Riverside some counties that are heavily republican today. I would like to find county numbers but have not been able to....??
