Colorado recall

It seems that there will be recall elections in Colorado soon, according to reports in the news (“Facing a Recall After Supporting Stronger Gun Laws in Colorado”).

That reminded me of a post I wrote back in 2011, when recall elections in Wisconsin were in the news. That post was about the research that was done in the aftermath of the 2003 gubernatorial recall in California, which is quite relevant today for anyone interested in what political scientists have found when they have studied recall elections.
