My Final 2012 Predictions, National-Level and California-Level

by: cali_girl_in_texas

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 06:14:59 AM PST


I was able to squeeze some time out of my hectic schedule to make my routine election predictions for 2012. After these results, I will have my "Partisan Factor" predictions for California, basically merging a national and a California diary into one.

For the national-level results, I used a combination of state polls and national polls, and factored in the results from 2008 to come up with my predictions. For the California-level results, I used registration and presidential, Senatorial, and gubernatorial results to come up with my "Partisan Factor", which is how I predict each competitive district will go.

cali_girl_in_texas :: My Final 2012 Predictions, National-Level and California-Level
Here are my predictions, signed, sealed, and delivered, beginning with the presidential race. Switches from 2008 are noted with an asterisk.

Assuming districts with a PF of less than R+7 are Dem wins (California's Cook PVI is D+7), then the composition of the delegations will be as follows:

U.S. House: 37 DEM, 16 GOP
(Districts 3, 7, 9, 24, 26, 41, 47 and 52 go DEM; 10 and 36 go GOP)

Safe DEM (29): 2, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 27, 28, 29, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 37, 38, 40, 43, 44, 46, 51, 53
Safe GOP (14): 1, 4, 8, 21, 22, 23, 25, 31, 39, 42, 45, 48, 49, 50

State Senate: 28 DEM, 12 GOP
(Districts 5, 19, 27, 31, and 39 all go DEM)

Safe DEM (10): 3, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 25, 33, 35
Safe GOP (5): 1, 21, 23, 29, 37
Up in 2014: 13 DEM, 7 GOP

State Assembly: 55 DEM, 25 GOP
(Districts 8, 16, 21, 32, 40, 44, 61, 66, and 78 go DEM; 60 and 65 go GOP)

Safe DEM (46): 2, 4, 7, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19, 20, 22, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 37, 39, 41, 43, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 56, 57, 58, 59, 62, 63, 64, 69, 70, 79, 80

Safe GOP (23): 1, 3, 5, 6, 12, 23, 26, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38, 42, 55, 67, 68, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77

Thanks (8.00 / 1)
I HOPE you're right about the Senate
Especially in Ohio, Wisconsin, Virginia and Missouri

The Tea Party shot themselves in the Foot in Indiana and Missouri
Both should have been Easy GOP wins

A win in Arizona would be AMAZING !!


Awesome work! (8.00 / 1)
cali_girl:

Thanks for doing this.  So far, it appears your analysis is spot on.  You should expect contact from a news network.... this is good stuff!


Prop 30 (8.00 / 1)
It looks like Prop 30 WON !!!
Is this official ?
THAT was the big issue in California for me

I'm pretty sure the Dems didn't get super majorities in the Assembly or the Senate

But, at least Howard Berman LOST !!

*** NEWSFLASH ***

Mitt Romney says he gonna STICK TO HIS PRINCIPLES !!

(which are FOR Gay marriage when running in Mass,
and AGAINST Gay mariage when running for the Republican nomination)

HA ! HA !!


Did Prop 30 Win? (8.00 / 1)
You betcha! With 98.5% of the votes in, 30 won with 53.9% of the vote, also Props 35, 38, 39 & 40 also won, the rest all lost...

[ Parent ]
Did you notice ? (8.00 / 1)

'... Maine, Maryland and Washington State voters all approved marriage equality...'

DURING A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION YEAR
Don't run a Gay Marriage initiative UNLES it's a Presidential Election

Dollars to Donuts that Gay Marriage would have won in Californai if it had been on the ballot yesterday

But, it's suicide to run it in off-year elections
