Handicapping the Recall….Final Edition

HANDICAPPING THE RECALL….FINAL EDITION….In a display of pundit machismo, I am going to link to my recall predictions from two months ago. Here’s the summary:

  • “I think the recall with succeed. My prediction is that it will get 55-60% of the vote and Gray Davis will get tossed out.”

  • “I don’t think the courts will stop the election.”

  • Schwarzenegger will get only 25% of the vote and lose to Bustamante, but ? “If Schwarzenegger and McClintock end up as the only serious Republicans, Schwarzenegger wins.”

Tomorrow we’ll see how I do at this stuff.
