Take a good look. Trafalgar Group is a very respected and straight shooting pollster. I am going to let you in on a secret – I had been getting internal polling on the recall and those leaks stopped abruptly two weeks ago. I believe I now know why.

I also understand why Kevin Faulconer throttled back his ads and stopped mentioning the recall. (more on that in a bit)
John Cox, Larry Elder and Kevin Faulconer have all run very selfish campaigns and the Yes on Recall part of the message has suffered. I am an out of the closet #neverfaulconer Republican. I will give him no quarter until he is demolished. Elder? I like Jeff Corless a lot, but Corless inherited a campaign that made far too many mistakes to recover from.
Gavin? $100 million worth of advertising can make up for anything. Just take a step back from everything – Gavin has not really needed to attack Elder. Gavin has simply done feel good ads playing to weak minded people’s covid fears.
What will happen when Gavin survives the recall? Retaliation aided and abetted by the legislature and the attorney general. They will attempt to prosecute Elder.
Gavin will lock the State down in the name of the Delta Variant. (If you have any doubts, take a look at his ads)
Gavin will go even further left with jailbreaks and executive orders.
On the Republican side of the aisle – the very same people that opposed the recall and then got Faulconer in the game way late will blame Larry Elder and the recall people for the disaster. Faulconer will then be presented as the savior of the GOP.
Problem – the GOP will lose another 1,000,000 registrations in both a mass exodus and disgusted people leaving the GOP because of their behavior. Arnold was good for 1,000,000 as was Meg Whitman. The same people that foisted those two on us are lurking in the Faulconer cesspool.
Faulconer? His crew will be back for their pound of flesh. The same brain-trust that called the FBI on your intrepid blogger are going to resume the third attempt to sell the CAGOP to Kevin Faulconer in 2022. The consultant class have huge egos and I’ve seen many of them go on tilt just to prove their authoritah at the expense of all kinds of collateral damage.
The rank and file? Nothing will really change there – the establishment will continue paying people (many of whom control CAGOP committees) to keep the undesirables out of the CAGOP so they can keep abusing the skeleton to pay their bills.
For those of you new to the CAGOP political scene due in part to the recall – take this as a warning. You did all the work and now the people that opposed you and helped the recall fail with their actions are going to blame you for the consequences and then use that as justification to push all of you out of the process. I’ve seen this game before and I will be here for the team Faulconer perpetrators.
P.S. – keep fighting because it is not a foregone conclusion the Recall is going to fail. However, make contingency plans because that is the prudent thing to do.
