I'll be praying for his victory, California. All I need is for you guys to go out and vote NO!

1. I am very worried and don't even want to watch...
but am hoping Davis can somehow come through. Why don't those idiots in CA see what a dork Arnie is? How can he have more than 5%? Even repugs shouldn't be supporting the groper/Nazi.

6. Hmmmm.....
You're obviously believing the shit they're shoveling in these polls.

I don't know ANYONE who has been polled ...yes, I know that there are a LOT of Californians, but statistical samples are very easily skewed in CA IMHO...especially if you make a point of not calling certain area codes (or prefixes within certain area codes), etc., or only calling during certain times of the day...Camejo got more votes in S.F. county last november than Simon, and I don't think they're switching over to Ahnuld...

2. We may not know
There will be a lot of uncounted absentee ballots, not to mention the likelihood of tabulation problems in the "chad" precincts.

4. Probably won't know immediately
There are 2 million absentee ballots. The ones we got here in OC were 11 by 17. They will have to hand count those.

I imagine the recall up/down vote will be the easiest to tabulate. The actual victor from the race if the recall is YES will be much more difficult.

5. unlikely!
at least in my area, the ballots need an extra manual step this time. this is due to the unusual nature of the ballot with 135 candidates in one race. the extra step will probably take hours... so at this time tomorrow, poll workers will probably still be processing. depending on how heavy the turnout is.

8. Expect them to proclaim Arnie the victor no matter what --then ...
later they'll actually look at the votes,

if results don't say "yes"on recall "majority for Arnie"
then they'll call Diebold crime family to attempt a slight adjustment...

Wait--results used to say "No" on recall--
now it''s "Yes"--magically !!!
presto Arnie wins by a million votes--rabbit out of a hat!!


But when exit polls don't match we have a valid reason to question the results...
Wait..
since touch-screens have no paper trail we can't prove it---it can now drag on for months ---

and then the U.S. Supreme court can intervene and say Arnie wins--end of story and then we will all have to revolt and take to the streets to get Davis back in.
