On Tuesday Nov. 2, Jerry Brown won for the 3rd time as California Governor, 28 years after he last served. Voters across California were questioned as they left the polls on Tuesday and provided us with some insight into who voted for Brown and who voted for Meg Whitman. Click on the exit poll data and check it out. There are three pages of quite a bit of data. Check out race, education, income, gender, party affiliation and any other data you consider useful.
Show your ability to analyze and draw conclusions by identifying which groups supported Brown and which groups of voters supported Whitman. Look at all 3 pages as to fully see all the trends.
Now with Brown winning and getting most support, look where Whitman was strongest and where Brown was strongest.
Do your best to explain why those particular groups gave each candidate support. Use your knowledge of the parties, consider what the groups have to gain from either candidate, and do some logical assumptions if you have to. If you look at all the data it should become clear.
Be sure to give complete thoughtful answers, not just a quick response to the first piece of data you see or a copying of someone else's comments.
Responses due by Friday.
