NEWSOM IN CALIFORNIA
Among voters nationwide
RECALL OF GOV. GAVIN NEWSOM (D):
Would vote to RECALL Newsom: 36%
Would vote to KEEP Newsom: 45%
RON’S COMMENT: This Berkeley/IGS poll shows that more voters oppose the recall than support it, but a high 19% are undecided. The region that is most likely to vote to recall the Democratic governor is Orange County (45%) and the region least likely is the San Francisco Bay area (26%)…. In the 2018 election for governor, Newsom’s Republican opponent received 38% of the vote statewide, slightly more than the percentage that now supports recall.
JOB RATING OF GOV. GAVIN NEWSOM (D):
RON’S COMMENT: Dueling polls––PPIC shows a majority of voters approve of Newsom, but Berkeley/IGS has him in net negative territory. The polls used different methodologies; PPIC is conducted by phone and Berkeley is done online…. In the PPIC poll, 71% of Democrats, 46% of independents and 16% of Republicans approve of the way Democratic Gov. Newsom is handling his job as governor.
