Just days from now, Californians will head to the polls to cast their votes for whether to recall embattled Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, who has been under fire for imposing tyrannical pandemic restrictions and mishandling government funds.
But will enough fed-up Californians be motivated to vote “yes” on the ballot on Tuesday to actually remove him from office?
New polls—if you can trust them—show that Newsom could be rapidly gaining anti-recall support. One survey conducted by University of California, Berkley, a liberal university located near Sacramento, shows that 60 percent of California voters would reject the recall, The Hill reported.
The research showing an upswing in support for Newsom comes after Vice President Kamala Harris’ visited the state to help him campaign where she said if Republicans can win in California, “they can win anywhere.” His campaign also recently received a massive donation of $500,000 from George Soros, who has contributed over $1 million total.
However, considering that nearly two million Californians signed a written petition to recall him this year, there is a strong chance that the passion against him will outweigh any last-minute support he musters among the Democrat base.
On the other hand, support for Larry Elder, the front-running Republican candidate in the recall election, has skyrocketed among Californians over the past few weeks.
Despite the vicious attacks Elder, who is black, has received from the Left for running as a Republican, he is continuing on what is hopefully the path to victory to replace Newsom as Governor of California.
This week, former President Donald Trump weighed in on the recall election and predicted it could be rigged in favor of Newsom. California has not taken any precautions to thwart the possibility of voter fraud since the 2020 election. It has also again sent out mass mail-in ballots to all residents of the state.
It would not be surprising if on election night we see a similar situation to that of November 3 where states, including California, took days or even weeks to count votes. Without transparency and same-night election results this time around, Trump’s prediction may very well come true.
Despite the chance that it could end up being rigged or fraught with fraud, the election must go on. And as the California recall election intensifies, the candidates are hitting the campaign trail this weekend to garner support ahead of election day on Tuesday, Sept. 14.
