New Jersey: Is Bayonne recall "gross miscalculation"?

Interesting discussion of Bayonne Mayor James Davis recall -- it notes that the change in law for how many signatures are required to get a recall on ballot from voter turnout to registered voters has killed the use of the recall in Hudson County (and though not mentioned, really in New Jersey as a whole). There have been only two successful ones in in Hudson County -- one in North Bergen, one in West New York that resulted in the same official winning reelection.

The result is that the recall against Davis seems like a waste of time that could have been used to have taken power in other ways.
