Ahnold is thuh new govahnohr. 48.3% of the votes, a solid 1.2 million more than Cruz Bustamante. Not a majority, but a very sound plurality. 99.2% of precincts reporting

The turnout numbers are interesting. Marin County's no BFE, and they turned out 71%. A lot of 60's, 53% statewide. That's low even for off-year and special elections, according to the Secretary of State's office.

At the end of the day, Gray Davis still isn't a bad guy. But he was politically incompetant, he failed to serve his constituents. 55% of the voters who showed up agreed. It's entirely constitutional, and if you don't like it, you can work to change it, or shut up.
