Poll indicates Newsom likely to beat recall effort

A new poll suggests California Governor Gavin Newsom is likely to beat recall efforts.

California is a safe blue state and the party registration gap is highly in favor of Newsom.

Per The Hill “the survey, conducted by the independent California-based firm Probolsky Research, found 46 percent of voters and 53 percent of those who say they are likely to vote in a recall election would vote to keep Newsom in office. Forty percent of all voters and 35 percent of likely recall voters would vote to remove him.”

“About two-thirds of Democratic voters would vote to keep Newsom in office, a relatively low number, but one that hints he has room to grow if he can keep his party in line. Registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans in California by a nearly 2-to-1 margin,” the report adds.

Recall effort organizers collected over 2.1 million signatures of which only about 1.5 million need to be verified as legitimate in order to force the recall election that will be likely held in the fall.
