Take A Deep Breath
Before everyone faints from glee, a few things need to be pointed out.
- Exactly two states elected Democratic governors, New Jersey and Virginia. In both states, the current governor was a Democrat; in Virginia, he was quite popular as well. And big surprise, a Democrat won in New Jeresey.
- In California, Ahnold was dealt a pretty strong blow, the realignment plan was rejected. But in Ohio, a similar plan was rejected as well, except unlike California, which is gerrymandered to ensure Democrats win, Ohio is gerrymandered to ensure Republicans win. It just seems like everyone prefers the status quo.
So what does this mean for the 2006 election? I have no idea. And neither does anyone else.
