    is a big improvement for Democrats from the 1980s, when none of the three Democratic nominees broke 40% of the vote there.  Even into the 1990s, Clinton only got 39% in his first race (while he would have gotten quite a bit more without Perot, he still lost the state.)

    And remember back in the 80s California was at best a swing state and often GOP leaning, New Jersey was solid Republican for president, and even New York wasn't safe Democratic.  For all the current challenges, we've come a long way in two decades.
