The polls have the Democratic primary for governor way too close to call, with some showing Westly moving up and some suggesting that Angelides has the momentum -- and all of them showing that almost a third of the voters haven't made up their minds the day before election day. Randy Shaw at BeyondChron  predicts an Angelides win because the hard-core Democrats are most likely to go to the polls. Markos at DailyKos gives a nod to the possibiity that negative campaigning has turned a lot of voters off, but he goes further, saying that both sides have run lousy campaigns.
The constant internal warfare matters in this race a lot more than the nastiness in the Reilly-Ma contest. The candidate who takes the Democratic Assembly primary in SF is the sure winner in November; the Republicans don't have a chance (although if the winner is Ma, I'm voting for Barry Hermanson . But either Westly or Angelides will have to unite the party and fight an ugly battle against Arnold in the fall, and this shit won't help a bit.
