have Californians abandoned Christian politics?

Christian rights groups held a rally at the state capitol in Sacramento today. They planned on 100,000 people showing up and blocked off many city blocks for the crowds, complete with police protection, giant video screens on every block, a fancy sound system, dozens of cash donation collection stations, etc. TV news video shows that maybe 5000 people showed up for the rally. All of the video screens were far behind the crowd with no one watching them.
The speakers were chanting about traditional Christian rights issues (anti gay rights, anti abortion, anti religious diversity, etc.).
Does the dismal turnout show that Californians have abandoned traditional Christian politics? Or just abandoned modern Christian politicians? Or have Californians abandoned Christianity altogether?
