Polls Show Governor in a precarious position

SACRAMENTO — The California gubernatorial recall election will soon be held. America is watching closely as Californians vote on two important issues. First, they are voting on whether or not Gavin Newsom should be recalled from the office of Governor. Second, if they do recall Newsom, they are voting on who should replace him.

This recall election provides a historic opportunity for conscientious voters to check the power of the Governor’s office and its very real impact on their daily lives. Newsom and fellow Democrats seem convinced that he will remain in office, but recent polls indicate that he is more likely to be recalled than he thinks. If the vote to recall exceeds 50%, then the candidate who receives the most votes will become California’s governor until the November 2022 election.
