Dr. Pitney's California Super Tuesday Primer

See Pitney’s article in National Review. A summary of his six points to consider:

First, for many Californians, the election has already ended.

Second, while vote totals are psychologically important, presidential nominations hinge on delegate counts.

Third, independents can vote in the Democratic primary, but not in the Republican one.

Fourth, in spite of all the talk of California’s diversity, the makeup of the California electorate is a problem for Obama.

Fifth, while the state’s most famous Republican takes some liberal positions, its registered Republicans lean rightward.

Sixth and last, Schwarzenegger’s endorsement of John McCain has scant effect.

More of Pitney’s thoughts, along with those of Steve Williams, Opinion Page Editor of the Victorville Daily Press, here.
