Here at the SD Rostra Number Crunching Institute, we found intriguing data in the Secretary of State’s final report of election 2010. We Compared final pre-election GOP registration percentages, to the average Republican vote for Governor and US Senator.
Among the 8 southern California counties, the Republican Party of San Diego scored a 1st-place finish, running a full 14.1% ahead of GOP registration. OK, in fairness to our many friends in OC, they tied for top honors, also with 14.1%. San Diego Republican registration is 36.2%, but Fiorina and Whitman scored an average 50.3% of the vote, producing the 14.1% figure cited.
These figures further confirm the local trends we’ve previously reported on the ‘San Diego Sweep’ of top local races: Lorie Zapf and Ernie Dronenburg taking seats away from Democrats (SD Council 6 and Assessor/Recorder), the easy re-election wins for Ron Roberts and Bill Horn, and the ballot measure wins in defeating Sales Tax hike Prop. D, and approving the PLA-ban for County
of SD projects with Proposition A.
Hat tip to the mostly women volunteers who ran 7 regional HQs for the Republican Party of San Diego. With guidance by Tony Krvaric and Barrett Tetlow, the GOP boosted rank-and-file turnout by 4% relative to Democrats.
And yes, as today’s map and those local results confirm, 4% can win a lot of elections.
