The power of Gov. Schwarzenegger?

Though when I went to sleep last night it looked light California's Proposition 66 would pass, this morning CNN's numbers report that Proposition 66 failed by a margin of 53% to 47%. Based on all the reports from California, it seems clear that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's active and vocal opposition to the measure turned the tide. Also, debate over the potential retroactive application of the Prop. 66's changes to California's Three Strikes law clearly played a role.

With thanks to Howard Bashman, here are early articles about Prop. 66 from San Francisco Chronicle and the Sacramento Bee.
