Literally nothing has changed in the California government between yesterday and today.

I see a lot of news projecting that Newsom has beat the California recall. Newsom has even already given a victory speech. The No vote currently has 5,520,289 or 67%. The Yes vote has 2,747,825 or 33%. I believe these results are only for mail in ballots received prior to 8 pm pacific time and does not include in person voting or mail ballots that were not yet received.
I'm a little disappointed, but not surprised. I was hoping that Californians would get a reprieve from any future covid restrictions and mask/vaccine mandates.

Gov Newsom Survives California Recall, Thanks Voters
An overwhelmingly no vote tonight here in the state of California. That was expressed tonight. I want to focus on what we said yes to as a state," Newsom said. Newsom continued: "We said yes to science. We said yes to vaccines. We said yes to ending this pandemic. We said yes to people's right to vote without fear of fake fraud or voter suppression. We said yes to women's fundamental constitutional right to decide for herself what she does with her body and her fate and future. We said yes to diversity. We said yes to inclusion. We said yes to pluralism. We said yes to all those things that he we hold dear as Californians and I would argue as Americans. Economic justice, social justice, racial justice, environmental justice. Our values, where California's made so much progress. All of those things were on the ballot this evening.

I doubt the entire state is a 60-40 ratio. The large cities are probably higher than that, and the smaller (much) communities probably less so.
As in most states, maybe all of 'em, the cities carry the day. Most of the time.
Los Angeles. San Francisco. San Diego. ...and the 'burbs of those, will probably carry most any state wide election.
Not always, probably, but usually. My guess is, barring shenanigans, that's how it worked out, or will work out, today.
