- Had Steve Pougnet not been embroiled in a corruption scandal and had he decided to stand again he could have been expected to win another term easily.
- The total number of votes cast over the past three elections is quite consistent despite there having been two landslide wins and one that was much closer at around 11,000. Clearly in Palm Springs, especially when the incumbent is not seeking re-election, every vote has the potential to make a difference.
- When Ron Oden, who is seeking to be elected as Mayor again, won in 2003, he won by only a narrow margin of 827 votes. (He was not a candidate in 2007).
