I’ve made no secret of my support for Larry Elder. If I were still in California, I’d vote for him in a heartbeat. He’s intelligent and deeply principled, and California is in very bad shape. The good news is that I’m not the only one who likes Larry. It turns out that a lot of Californians are relieved that Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner isn’t the only alternative to Gavin Newsom. According to an Emerson College/Nexstar Media poll, there’s bad news for Newsom and good news for Elder. With the election coming up in September, currently, 43% of voters want to recall Newsom, while 48% want to keep him in office. If Newsom continues to re-lockdown the state, those numbers can be expected to get much closer — the 9% of undecided voters will follow the trend. Even more damaging for Newsom is the fact that, while a lot of voters aren’t enthused about kicking him out early, a large majority (58%) wouldn’t vote for him when he runs for reelection in 2022. Moreover, a plurality of voters gave Newsom a grade of “poor” on key issues: COVID, droughts, wildfires, and the homeless. If Newsom cherished any ideas of jumping from California to the White House, he’d better put those dreams aside.
