Chesa Boudin getting annihilated in San Francisco recall results

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is down more than 20 percentage points in his recall election.The first batch of results from San Francisco show “yes” on the recall leading “no” 61% to 39%. This batch contains all mail ballots received before Election Day. Since November 2020, every San Francisco voter has been mailed a ballot for elections. In all of those elections — the November 2020 general election, the Gavin Newsom recall in 2021, and two special elections in February and April 2022 — that first batch of results has contained about 70% of the number of total votes cast. Because such a large proportion of the total vote comes in that first dump, the final results have been at most 2 to 3 percentage points different from results following the first batch.In other words, Boudin is in deep, deep trouble. SFGATE will not call the race until the Associated Press does.Ahead of Election Day, polls had shown that Boudin was likely to get recalled. The margin of defeat was anywhere from 10 to 36 percentage points.San Francisco’s elections office plans to release second batch at 9:45 p.m. That batch will contain some of the votes cast in-person at polling places. Another batch of such results will be released at 10:45 p.m.
