5:46 pm
david mcewan sees this, there is enthusiasm and saying no to the district attorney and right or wrong to dean has become a scapegoat for a lot of frustrated mckeown points to the big money being spent on the recall effort. the organization involved here even more than that, though, looking at this particular primary, this particular primary season, he is seeing what he calls the politics of know and the politics of protest. >> and that means that there is, if you will, a threat behind the door against most politicians for moving too far too fast. and in a difficult direction. for example, if you look at san francisco and you see the pictures and the images of retail robberies of burglaries break-ins of a feeling of insecurity or where you have to, you know, file a police report on line because you'll never get an officer to come by unless it's a life-threatening situation. all of that becomes a a sanction of this protest
5:47 pm
politics. and that's where the san francisco dhs ability is really the target. what we see as it becomes a sanction. a pox on all your houses. i think one of the things to watch on tuesday is up. not just a few loses, but if he loses by more than 20 points is a 60, 40 something like that. and that will be a rapid and huge, deep message. but this electorate is not just worried. they're very upset and they're using the d a recall race in san francisco as a proxy for all that is going wrong. >> he says an awful lot of people will be watching what happens including the los angeles district attorney saying it's sending a chill over politicians and leaders across the country. and we'll hear more from mckeown at 6 o'clock on why he thinks california's unique primary system. he's basically a flop vicki and grant. all right, catherine, whether time now taking a live look outside our bird's-eye view of downtown san francisco.
