Abstract:

California's historic recall election in October 2003 resulted in the removal of an incumbent Democratic governor and his replacement by GOP candidate Arnold Schwarzenegger. This paper analyzes a series of largescale public opinion surveys conducted by the Public Policy Institute of California during Governor Schwarzenegger's first year in office in seeking to answer the following questions: (1) how did the public's attitudes toward their governor's performance in office, trust in state government, and perceptions of the state of the state change over time?; (3) to what degree did attitudes change toward the recall process and direct democracy?; (4) is there a relationship between the governor's ratings and attitudes toward use of the recall process?; and (5) is there a link between the governor's ratings, attitudes toward the recall, and 2004 election choices? The paper discusses the implications of the California recall for the future use of direct democracy.
