    Guns are what allowed the recall to happen, but more than the gun issue drove people to the polls
    The data is clear.  Something pissed enough D's off to vote to remove them from office.  
    •  I disagree completely. This was *purely* about... (5+ / 0-)

      ...gun control.

      From beginning to end.

      If this had been a general election, you'd be right, and the "mail-in ballot" issue would also have been a factor.

      But this was absolutely nothing but a gun control election, no matter how much the D's tried to pull it everywhere but.

      You needed to listen to the opponents. They gave trivial lip service to issues like immigration policy. But it was flaccid and mere fluff.

      All those people holding signs and collecting petitions at Walmart were not there because of abortion or gay rights or anything else.

      Yosemite Sam was hoppin' mad.
