“Based on our analysis, we project that Trump will win at least 133 out of the 172 delegates at play in California,” remarked Vince Vasquez, NUSIPR senior policy analyst and author of the report. “Pollsters have identified a coalescing of Republican vote behind Trump over the past two weeks, suggesting a greater acceptance of Trump as the party nominee. Prior exit polls have also shown that Trump voters don’t feel represented or heard in the political process. That would certainly be true in California; Republicans have suffered a string of losses in statewide races over the past 18 years. There are currently no Republicans holding statewide elected office, and Republicans are in the minority in the State Assembly and Senate.”
