Newsom seems confident that he'll survive the recall:
The Ds better start learning from R strategy. The risk to the country is far too great for them to stand back and make stupid mistakes.Newsom did / is doing something quite interesting. He nationalized the recall and scared CA voters with examples of recent R behavior in FL and TX, something generally Rs do to Ds in election season. It seem to be working ... This is something my election whisperer stated was a winning strategy that Ds often mess up.
I'm now thinking that the strategy of not having a strong Dem candidate is brilliant. It makes it that much more important to vote No if you don't want a shitshow like Larry Elder as governor.The Ds better start learning from R strategy. The risk to the country is far too great for them to stand back and make stupid mistakes.
And just where have we heard this before?So the county just south of ours, which is just as red or maybe even redder, has a ballot snafu where some of the ballots can't be read due to printing glitch. The election officials have explained that it only affected a few ballots and they have a bipartisan committee of four who will check each ballot, make a duplicate, verify it is correct, and submit it. All four will sign off on each ballot. It will have the same serial number as the original ballot so it can be tracked and matched. Has this stopped the screaming of "Fraud!!! Dems cheating again!!!!" Of course not...
Um, Larry Elder has not really been campaigning the last few days and has ALREADY set up a website and phone source claiming election fraud. Before the election is even final. Because that is the NEW GOP: "If we win, the results are fair. If we lose, IT'S FRAUD!!!!" And of course, he won't say he will accept the election results. The Trump Playbook, 101.And just where have we heard this before?
Here's the articleCNN called it for "NO."
