The effort to recall California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom is not only gaining steam, it is looking more and more like an inevitability.
Just a few months ago, Democrats and their friends in media were referring to the recall effort as a project by the political fringe.
Now even some liberal media outlets are admitting things don’t look good for Newsom.
His polls are sinking. Democrats are mobilizing. The Newsom recall just got real.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom doesn’t want to talk about the recall. But his allies can’t ignore it.
The campaign to oust Newsom went from unlikely to unavoidable this week as pervasive frustration with Newsom’s pandemic management cut sharply into his approval numbers. The longer businesses have been closed, hospitals full and school campuses shut, the more the movement has gained traction beyond conservative social media circles.
The nation’s biggest Democratic vulnerability after a score of blue victories has become an irresistible nightly feature on Fox News. Should the effort qualify, look for money to pour into the state and celebrities to add their names to the ballot, if only for the promotional benefits.
Newsom still deflects questions about the opposition effort by saying he is singularly focused on vaccinating Californians and reducing Covid-19 spread. He has adamantly denied that his abrupt decision to reverse stay-at-home orders last month was an attempt to quell voter frustration. And he seems determined to avoid legitimizing the effort by acknowledging it.
They can no longer ignore this.
There are now 1.4 million signatures to Recall @GavinNewsom.

Gov. Gavin Newsom has failed California’s businesses, schools, and families, all while displaying an unmatched hypocrisy with his fancy French Laundry dinner parties with friends.
No wonder his approval rating has dropped to 31%.

Newsom may be looking for a new job very soon.
