His original margin of victory in 2018 was 24 points. This one is running 28 as I type this.
When he won in 2018, he got the highest number of gubernatorial votes (7.7 million) in California history. In fact, he got more than the two major 2014 candidates added together! This recall election has a chance to top that number, depending on the final count of voters and the final margin of victory.
Having noted all of that, let’s add that it is time for California to review some of its preposterous election procedures on recalls and referenda.
