Feb 21 analysis Nov 20 election

Here's an interesting article that appeared in this week's Palisadian Post on how Pacific Palisades voted in the 2020 general election. 
In the Palisades precincts, 87% of registered voters turned out to vote. This bested L.A. County's turnout of 74.6% — high, but lower than turnout in the 2008 Obama–McCain contest. 
As usual the Pacific Palisades vote was heavily Democratic: 72.4% voted for Biden, making the Palisades bluer in 2020 than in other years.
The votes on Measure J, to put aside 10% of unrestricted revenue to serve social justice issues, and RR, authorizing a bond issue for school infrastructure improvement, indicate that voters are progressive in their social values.    
All candidates endorsed by PPDC were elected with large majorities, with one outlier: the DA race. Your Dem club endorsed reform candidate Gascón, who won by 10 points, while other endorsed candidates victories garnered between 70% and 80% of the vote.  
Joe Halper
President Emeritus, PPDC
