The Corner


You wanted political predictions. Sorry. I think the recall will happen, if for no other reason than that would be the more exciting outcome and it sort of feels like Californians are following a script. But I think the margin of recall and Arnold victory will be lower than people think. So: Recall: 52%, Arnold 39%, Cruz 30% McClintock 17% and Gary Coleman (AKA “The Other Arnold” — which should have been his slogan) will get .9%

Does anybody have any predictions about Prop 54?
