african-americans and latinos underperformed and that gender gap we all talked about did not meet predictions. in all, 7 million fewer voters. that is amazing. fewer voters participated last tuesday than in 2012. and most of these were democr democratic. on the economy, the growing gap between rich and poor and a lack of good jobs, that struck a cord with large swaths of voters particularly in that upper midwest region. clearly economic recovery from the great recession just has been uneven. and then politically. clinton represented more of the same, which just didn't go over well those who felt less doubt. but trump presented himself as a change agent and voters were willing to forgive him for his abusive behavior in exchange for that possibility of better life. >> let's talk about california. state races. any surprises or up? >> you know, the lack of
7:47 am

industry to defeat this proposal and then, finally, ratification of an agreement between san jose and the public safety unions on safety reform. that's measure f may signal a new beginning for a city and its unions with the public being the beneficiary of more police hires. >> in many cases what we saw voters taxing themselves. >> you know, it's really something. it's really clear that bay area residents want better services and aring to pay for them. part of the reason has to dawith the economic vitality of this area. we know we live in a bubble and also lies with the desire of local citizens to live in quality communities. you know, whatever else. it's times like these that remind us that the bay area really is a special place. >> it is a special place with some money to spend. larry gerstein, thank you much. much more today in the bay. san francisco make the day of a
