California Voters Split on Recall Effort

NPR's Ina Jaffe reports that California voters, faced with a recall election Oct. 7, seem to be divided into three camps: those who want to oust Gov. Gray Davis, those who want to keep him, and those who might want to oust him but oppose the recall. Polls show slightly more than half of voters would remove Davis if they could choose today. But voters also say they might change their minds depending on who runs to replace Davis and how much the election costs.
