If Governor Davis is recalled, the election for the next California
governor will be won by a plurality.  With many candidates on the ballot, a
well-organized group can win the plurality even if they have a small total
portion of the vote.  So far, the Democrats do not want to put up a major
candidate because that would increase the vote to recall the incumbent.  So
the optimal strategy for the Democrats would be for Davis to win the recall
election, thus they are avoiding providing an attractive Democrat
alternative.
