    Not when one takes into consideration such factors as enrollment. In 2010, California's Democrats had a 13-point advantage over Republicans.

    Against that measure, Fiorina over-performed. That she was a new candidate who never held political office and had to build statewide name recognition also is important. This was not a race between two experienced political leaders, but a long-serving Senator vs. a new candidate.

    That's true. We went from 9 Trillion to 18 trillion under Obama. That's more like 9 trillion.

    Yes we know. You libs like to start counting debt from Obama's first Budget.

    Even though Obama signed 9 out of the 12 Spending appropriations bills in Bush's ( Pelosis FY2009 Budget )

    So more dishonesty from the Democrats, well thats not unexpected.

    as of January of this year... the national debt has increased 7.4 trillion since Obama took office.

    by CBO predictions on spending, released in januaury this year, we're looking at a touch over 9 trillion in added debt by the end of Obama's terms

    Anyway you want to describe it, it is truly horrible fiscal management. He wouldn't last long in business.

    If you knew anything about California politics you wouldn't say that. Even a poor GOP candidate is going to get about 40% of the vote in California. On that level....she performed as expected.

    Don't believe me....just look at the last Governor election in 2014. Kashkari got the requisite 40% Republican vote and still got trounced. The reality is....the GOP could put up a ham sandwich and they are going to get 40% of the vote.
