Down toward the end, we have this:
“I’m calling in sick tomorrow - everyone is calling in sick,” said Patrick Steber, 31, as he celebrated on Castro Street.
“And then I’ll vote around noon,” he said. “We have to honor (pitcher) Timmy Lincecum by passing (the measure to legalize marijuana) Proposition 19.”
This points to a win for prop 19, and likely problems for Fiorina and Whitman.
It doesn’t appear that there’s much of an “enthusiasm gap” in San Fran. All across the country, Dems are demoralized - there’s nothing for them to vote for. Here, they’re honoring the hero pitcher. A reason for them to vote, and instead of working for 8 hours or more, they’re doing nothing but voting.
And, typically, “change” candidates don’t do as well when the home team wins. Winning the World Series “all is well”, not as angry, not wanting change quite as much.
