    The fact that Rose McGowan and others are already calling fucking fraud, including Elder, means that they aren't going to give up without lawsuits that are going to go the same fucking way that the Trump lawsuits went.

    I still wonder when McGowan became a political pundit who anybody pays attention to, but oh well.

    It's the current Republicant schtick. Spend time talking about threats of fraud knowing you'll lose, pre-emptively claim fraud right before you lose, spend months complaining about fraud after you lose.

    The Trump playbook is remarkably thin, it's just a single page. Yet apparently it's good enough to be the blueprint for national Republicans everywhere.

    You know, despite the fact that after decades of whinging and moaning about "widespread voter fraud" that Republicans have yet to show any actual evidence of it, and the few instances of meaningful voter fraud uncovered have been from...Republican candidates.

    Id think they'd go worse

    between everyone seeing that show before and any judge they show up in front of not wanting their court used for that same circus. It will likely open with a demand that they put up or shut up, and anything else will see them risking their license.

    So good luck finding any lawyer that will drag it out like Lin Wood or Sidney Powell

    especially over a governorship that would barely last a year.

    I'll wait and see, as D Luniz already pointed out I highly doubt it will get that far, but even if that happens, the result of the election stand until they get overturned. Them being called into question doesn't mean he gets elected.

    LARRY ELDER'S PEOPLE HAVE DETECTED FRAUD ALREADY!

    Only a bit of a problem in that the election is ongoing and results haven't even begun to be counted...nor that it makes no mention of what the actual fraud "is".

    And I suppose he thinks a victory for Newsom means he's "reinstated" which...it doesn't, it just means Newsom continues doing the job he's been doing since he was elected.

    Fucking hell I deeply loathe these dishonest shits.

    First numbers are coming in, from some counties in California, and it isn't looking good for the recall election. Some counties are beating 2020 numbers for Biden. Granted the numbers are extremely early.

    Don't jinx it. Hopefully Californian's are sane enough to vote no on recall and reject black Trump as governor.

    Yeah, most of the numbers are the mail in votes they have gotten, which is about 70-75% of the total votes. Some of the biggest counties, like LA County, 60% of the vote was apparently by mail, there is 10 million people in that county. They would have to get 40% of that county's votes, for the recall to succeed. They are currently at 23.7%.

    Steve Kornacki is the best of the business for breaking down numbers.

    Dave Wasserman of the Cook Political Report already called it on Twitter and declared that the recall has failed based on the numbers coming in.

    Current vote numbers for totals, is roughly 71-29%. Roughly 4.5 million for no to 1.9 million for yes.

    Same day votes would have to be drastically insane for the recall to succeed. I suspect the major networks will call it relatively soon.

    Yeah, Kornacki is stating that some of the Trump strongholds need 60-70% for yes, and they are barely getting 51-58%.

    Swimming in dumdum populist tears this year. It's sweet!

    Yeah, looking at the registered voters for California, it is about 22 million. I doubt they get maybe more than half of that. Right now, the numbers in, for totals, is about 7.5 million, 68% of which are voting no, at the current moment.

    So they'd need like 90% of the remaining vote or thereabouts to recall?

    The same day vote would have to be heavily Yes for the recall to see. Like insanely high, a percentage they aren't likely to hit.

    NBC just called it, 67% for No.

    Hilarious that this was supposed to be a referendum on Newsom, but became one on Trumpism. Republicans are so stupid, considering how unpopular Trumpism is.
