    The correct conclusion, as with the two recalls in Colorado, would be that, regardless of what the overall populace in their areas wants, a sufficient number of people are passionate enough about that issue to turn out to vote on that issue, rather than stay home or only vote on elections that are larger.

    A small, active, mobilized base can be more important to elections than the preferences of a larger, but less mobilized, electorate.
