Davis Descending XXXIII: He's Still Not Dead, Yet

The Los Angeles Times reports on a new poll:

Overall, 50% of likely voters said they supported the effort to turn Davis out of office, while 45% were opposed.

But, wait, wasn't the recall favored by 58% just a day or so ago!? Doesn't that mean Gray Davis may have gained eight percentage point in just a few days? (Well, probably not that much.) And Mr. Davis hasn't yet turned on his campaign, or yet really tried hard to demonize Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Isn't poll momentum supposed to be the key to this recall election? Doesn't the Governor have that momentum?

This campaign looks like it's just getting started. Gray Davis is far from lying in his grave.
