Landslide victory for Newsom in California

It wasn't close. Californians clearly do not want what the new Republicans are selling. And lying about election fraud will not help their cause. It makes them look pathetic imo. If they try it.
Cool, you get to keep your leftist governor. You liberals are winning!

I think "election fraud!" is going to become the new mantra of the right-wingers every time they lose and election for a while.
Although Elder had been claiming the election would be rigged in advance of election day, he did not bring this up once the results were in. He gave a nice concession speech and asked his supporters to stop booing Newsom and be gracious. Newsom's 2:1 victory makes it impossible to claim fraud.

Exit polls asked voters about the main issues, and 70% were in favor of mask mandates for schools. that is huge. Opposition to this simple protective measure for kids is coming from a tiny but very angry and vocal group of people. While they can be disruptive at school board meetings, school officials and politicians have to recognize that this opposition is not only a winning issue, but it endangers kids.

Yes this is California which is majority liberal Dem, but there are also majorities, although smaller, on issues like this throughout most of the country.

I'm tellin ya vibie, y'all need to start cracking down on these ingrates. Isolate them in their homes. Seems like a good start!

Then you know the elections are fraudulent.
This was a landslide. You are suggesting fraud on a such massive scale that it should be easy to uncover. You would also have to explain how a heavily Dem state would go for a Trump acolyte. Have at it.

Well, if the unvaccinated would self isolate, everyone would be safer, including them.
OTOH it would make much more sense for them to get vaccinated, but sense seems in short supply in this cohort.

You need to do something vibie.

It seems like your hands are tied, forced vaccinations seem your only choice.
What Biden is mandating is weekly testing, with the opt out of a vaccine.

No one is being forced to get a vaccine, but it should be hard to remain unvaccinated. If you want to make this choice, then accept the consequences.
