Californians who say they expect to vote in the September recall election are almost evenly divided over whether to remove Gov. Gavin Newsom from office, evidence of how pivotal voter turnout will be in deciding the governor’s political fate, according to a new UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies poll co-sponsored by the Los Angeles Times.
The findings dispel the notion that California’s solid Democratic voter majority will provide an impenetrable shield for Newsom, and reveal a vulnerability created by a recall effort that has energized Republicans and been met with indifference by many Democrats and independent voters.
The poll found that 47% of likely California voters supported recalling the Democratic governor, compared with 50% who opposed removing Newsom from office — a difference just shy of the survey’s margin of error.
Conservative talk radio host Larry Elder, who last week won a court battle to appear on the Sept. 14 recall ballot, leads in the race to replace Newsom among the dozens of candidates in the running, while support for reality television star Caitlyn Jenner remains low, the survey found. Forty percent of likely voters remain undecided on a replacement candidate, providing ample opportunity for other gubernatorial hopefuls to rise in the ranks before the Sept. 14 special election….
The above comes from a July 27 story in the L.A. Times.
A vote here for Larry Elder. It’s about the content of his character, not the color of his skin.
And, of the candidates who are generally prolife and profamily, he seems to have the best chance of winning.
The Dems have already amassed about seven times the campaign money the recall people have. Slim and none
Go Larry Elder Go.
The Democrats are not worried? Maybe they have a good cheating system rigged again?
We don’t cheat but many in the other party lie.
That’s what they do best Peggy cheat.
The reversal of the socialist tides, at first the gentle, Menshevik control of the U.S. Government down to local city and county governments and local school boards, utilizing health departments and the CCP/Big Tech alliance to become a Bolshevik, censorship cancel culture authoritarian state control over the education of our children, the shutting down of schools and youth activities and family/main street businesses, and churches and places of worship, without care for the distress caused, the reversal of this authoritarian tide begins with the Recall of Newsom, who is a key link, both politically, and in terms of the financial interests that manipulate our politics.
Larry Elder is the best candidate to replace Newsom. He is passionate for what is true and right. He has a great life story of how he has come to his family, faith, and hard work centered values. Certainly John Cox also has a great backstory, and made a great sacrifice running for Governor, and there are other good candidates. Yet, Elder is the best candidate, and he can win. We all need to get behind him, and do what we can to get the vote out, combining this with local Recall efforts concerning local school boards and district attorneys.
Do any of you really believe that we can vote our way out the current culture in Cali and the US?
Sorry Chard, but I am not running for office. Culture isn’t changed by election.
