    It amazes that we held on to all our statewide seats this year, included an open secretary of state position( as we ran awesome canidate)

    The big issue we have my state of CA isn't so much people ticket splitting, but people undervoting. This why Republicans did so well San Diego for so long. Democratic Presidents would easily carry the city but those voters wouldn't vote for candidates down the ticket (they'd just left it blank on their ballots). That's finally starting to change thankfully. Obama won San Diego county again breaking 50%. The last Democrat to do that before was FDR in 1944! Democrats held onto their city council majority. won the mayors race, a county supervisor seat, and a  congressional seat!
