Total Recall?

Monday,  10/06/03  11:19 PM

So tomorrow is the big day - will Davis be recalled, and will Arnold replace him

total recallMy sense from friends and the blogosphere is that the LAT's last-minute negative articles have had a polarizing effect.  The campaign is now seen very much as Davis vs. Schwarzenegger (even though there are others, Bustamante in particular, who are running to replace Davis).  People who were leaning toward keeping Davis anyway are now strengthened in their position by the allegations against Arnold, and people who were leaning toward recalling Davis are mad at the apparent smear campaign.  The LAT articles have cost them credibility, but probably have not affected the overall outcome significantly.

Of course regardless of the results of the voting, there will be legal challenges to follow.  It will be interesting....
