I'm confused how this is calculated because by the margins California seems like a safer state than Kentucky.

Both Kentucky and California voted for Romney and Obama by the same margins. So it would seem that they are about as safe a state for their party as the other, but you have to account for the overall vote. Obama won by about 4 points in 2012, and it is likely that in a race where the popular vote was tied, Kentucky would be more Republican than California would be Democratic.
