Here is Steve Sailer’s post-mortem

Here is Steve Sailer’s post-mortem on California’s gubernatorial election. His analysis is optimistic for conservatives; I had lost track of the fact that Bill Simon, despite the many problems with his campaign, lost only 47%-42%. Sailer points out that the much-vaunted Hispanic vote is only 10% in California, and argues that Republicans can win in California the same way they did in many other states in 2002–by motivating, dominating and turning out the white vote.
