    Just out of curiosity, which of the Dems do you think currently running g would be better for our nation?

    Can I ask which would have your vote if it were tomorrow?

    I'm not really familiar with the recall process, but I would think that the 25% figure would apply to the number of eligible voters required to petition for a recall election. If this threshold is reached, a special election would then be held and the recall would be voted on by the entire electorate. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Actually no as that leads to mob rule. There is a lot of good reasons our government was designed as a Republic not a Democracy.

    Because it was a midterm and Trump wasn't on the ballot. The Republican turnout was weak without his army rushing to the polls, thus allowing the revved up Dems to take seats they likely would have never had a shot at during a presidential election year.
    His base honestly let him down in 2018 by sheer laziness and complacency. You can bet your ass they turn up in 2020 and if Bernie is the Dem candidate, a bunch of moderate Dems will sit this one out killing down ballot races.

    Yep impeachment is not a conviction, Clinton was also impeached. That just means articles were sent to the Senate.

    The rules vary, but the one usual aspect is the petition count threshold is to trigger a new election. A special election listening to all the voters. But that system is not the only one. Would be interesting to see the usage with US senators.

    Waiting for Terry to give me the gate code so I can drive all the way to MD to get my ass whoopping.

    pickled egg Tell me more

    If your math is correct, and IDGAF enough to check it, that number you posted is the threshold that has to be reached to bring a recall action to the voters.

    25% can’t subvert the will of the voters. 25% can ask the voters to reconsider their decision.

    Damn. Does it get tiring being wrong so often?

    I cant even answer that I really haven't been paying attention to them crazy fools

    I took a test that wapo put out I think Partick was 1st the Bloomberg and then biden I think I agreed with warren on 5 out of 20 questions and burnie 4
    that's as honest as I can be I haven't paid that much attention I tried to watch the debates but the questions being asked I didn't find to be important.

    I have yet to see anyone in the democratic party address the upcoming open Seat in Scotus I said that to a polster just a few weeks ago

    I think only 12- or 14 states allow it and the standard between them are a percentage of the actual vote count in the election in some states and percentage of registered voters in others. One state "Louisiana" I think used a sliding scale to determine the threshold. so if the vote count is 1000 then they'd require 40% and then over 1000 but under 25000 I think it was 25% and over 100k it was 20%.

    Active voters in Utah 1.443 million.
    25%=360,750 voters
    Romney was elected with 240,000 votes which was just over 71% of votes the 337,000 of all votes cast for the senate seat.

    So...I think you need to revisit your comment. IF the recall bill passes it would require the equivalent of 107% of ALL votes in the 2018 election. I think you need to sit YOUR simple ass down on this one.
