Deep inside a new USC/Los Angeles Times poll are details that could make the California Republican Party, and by extension its cohorts elsewhere in the country, fear anew the march of time and demographics.


The collision between ethnicity and age is even more lethal. Six in 10 white voters are over 50, making them prized in the present but not dependable in future decades. The reverse is true for Latinos, 64% of whom are age 49 or younger. Overall, among all voters, 35% of those 50 and over are Republicans; of those younger, only 23% were.

Already those younger and minority voters 38% of the voter pool are propping up Democrats in California. Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown has a positive job approval rating of 55% overall. Among white voters the rating is 51%. Among black voters, it is 61%, Among Latinos, it is 67%.

It's a shame he's not ten years younger.

Brown is doomed, he's lost a key endorsement.

That's one of those articles that feels like it must be from The Onion, but somehow isn't.

Honestly if Jerry Brown is responsible for Rob Schneider not making movies anymore, then I want him to run for President for life.

Governor Moonbeam for President! If he didn't veto that farmworker's protection bill, he'd easily be my favorite politician at the moment (not saying much but w/e).

A lot on the left here in California are actually very dissatisfied with Brown after Prop. 30 because apparently the funds are being used to finish his prison reform plan instead of returning to the university system. But the provision for the prison reform was included in Prop. 30 so I don't understand why this is such a surprise to anyone.

That said, it amazes me that this is actually the only place where I hear any rumblings of the prison-industrial complex from liberals. (Or at least where the issue is actually important to someone.)

No one loves spending money on prisons, but he was required by the courts to spend money on prisons. There's not much of a "choice" aspect here.

To be fair, California is so far ahead (or to the left) of the rest of the country on so many issues, you can afford to tackle the prison-industrial complex. Also you've got a huge prison population, right?

Yeah the overcrowding is a heavy issue but it requires a lot more examination for reform than it has right now. That said, the state could choose to release low-risk inmates instead of committing to the transfer. However, its nearing an election year, and there's little to no chance of that happening (or even to the majority of Dems consenting).

Don't knock California's agriculture. Many of your out-of-season fruits and vegetables come from California.
