Not that Mitt Romney will necessarily be contending in deep blue California, but don’t be surprised to see a now-desperate Obama hastily arranging some Bay Area campaign events.
Even more importantly — particularly in what is considered a ‘Blue’ state, where not surprisingly significantly more Democrats watched the debate than Republicans — it was striking that 48% thought Romney was the clear winner.
That’s according to a KPIX-TV CBS 5 poll taken right after the debate, which found only 34% of Golden State debate watchers actually believed Obama won.
Even in the San Francisco Bay Area, debate watchers saw Romney as a narrow winner, according to the poll which was conducted for CBS 5 by the firm SurveyUSA.
Narrow or otherwise, how devastating must it be to see Romney judged the winner in the most liberal region in the nation?
Not surprisingly, Obama narrowly won with one demographic group.
In fact, African Americans were the only demographic group in California to see Obama as a winner — and only narrowly, the CBS 5 poll found.
Whites, Hispanics and Asians all viewed Romney as the clear winner, according to the poll results.
Among other demographic breakdowns, men by 24 points and middle-income viewers by 27 points saw Romney as the clear winner.
Only younger Californians, those age 18 to 34, saw the debate as a draw. Viewers age 35 and over all said Romney won.
Meanwhile, Obama sycophants all over Twitter are in full-fledged meltdown. After some ribbing, this tool just blocked me. He’s stroking more than his chin today.
