There are a number of reasons why I think Arnold won the state of California.
Here a some of them.
(1) People sick of smear tactics which are perpetrated by disgruntled, miserable people on the left. The groping revelations which were revealed in the last minute had no effect on the recall at all, which is evidenced by Arnold getting more female votes than any other candidate. Also, other sorelosers who already spoke of a new recall before the results were even in, didn’t make the situation any better for the democrats.
(2) His opponents had no chance.
Davis - people hate him, and his drivers licencse bill for Illegal Aliens backfired on him, as quite a bit of the Spanish vote went to Arnold.
Bustamante - Never renounced his ties to that suspicious group MEChA, and came off as arrogant and condescending in that one TV debate.
McClintock - Too conservative to win in California.
Every other candidate was insignificant, and was wasting their time.
(3) People like Arnold, his personality, and him being a celebrity certainly helped. Having the “Terminator” as a Governor is just way cool.
This is primarily why Arnold won. . . . . . . Agree ? Disagree ?
