According to a poll done, over 50% of those asked would still vote for Newsom in a recall election.

I can't tell if people here in California are confused, dumb, or still like living under tyranny. Hell, Davis was recalled for a legitimate but lesser of a reason!

All of the above, sadly.

Commie-fornia has far too many open-minded criminal and homeless loving Leftists. Add the fact we are becoming the Nation's toilet with illegal immigrants and homeless, is it any wonder why so many voters 'support' Satanist Newscum? That was literally the frontpage headline for quite a few Bay Area newspapers today. This acceptance of Newscum is a great example why other states view CA as a bunch of people belonging in an insane asylum.

That is sad and ridiculous. I hope the poll is skewed to discourage us form voting him out.

Aside from not having a clearly laid-out plan for Newsom's replacement, such... uh... 'thinking' on the part of the majority of California voters is part of why I'm suspicious that the whole 'recall' thing is simply someone's idea to 'slow down' the "fundamental changes." For instance...

Newsom asked for a fracking ban. He may get more than he bargained for with ambitious plan

Quote:
...Proponents of the bill have said from the outset that Newsom must take an active role in pushing the legislation through and have expressed concern that the governor’s attention will be focused on his own political survival with a recall election in the fall all but certain.

With his future on the line, Newsom might be reluctant to cross California’s trade unions, an influential force in Democratic politics, and voters in the oil-rich San Joaquin Valley.

“The problem with the recall is that it becomes quite distracting,” said Kathryn Phillips, director of Sierra Club California, who supports the legislation. “It’s one way of essentially shutting down activity and so I worry that, not just for the fracking bill, but that everything is going to be hard to get done this year.”...

There is movement in the Recall Newscum waters.

He is getting large donations from the wealthy.
https://www.sfchronicle.com/politics...l-16093231.php
https://www.sfgate.com/politics/arti...d-16101483.php

Senate Bill 663 a measure that would allow the target of a recall effort to access information about voters who signed a petition to remove them from office.
https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/f...202120220SB663
https://www.ijpr.org/politics-govern...ignature-lists

Who knows what awaits but one thing is for sure the corrupt Newscum is doing everything he can to lie, cheat, and block the recall efforts.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned it yet. ...or maybe I missed it?

Don't forget, according to the pollsters Trump would never be elected president. As for me, Caitlin is the one.... That would really be one for the lib's: first trans governor and a Republican to boot....

After all, Arnie did a better job than most of them...

Moving in the right direction! Recall this corrupt Satanist Newscum. Glad he is on his way out. Lets hope enough people realize the consequences of laziness and apathy can result in Satanist Newscum on future ballots for higher positions of office! We MUST stop him from destroying America.

There is a map in this piece (posted last night)... Newsom recall: What happens next with California's recall process for governor... showing where support for the recall is strongest. Let's just say that the recall petition didn't garner the best percentage voters that provided signatures from the population centers. That doesn't necessarily mean the overall numbers aren't there; but, it's not necessarily promising either.

What still has me concerned is the lack of a solid alternative. As NPR observes...

Quote:
...If the recall election is held, voters would face two questions on the ballot: whether to remove Newsom from office and who should replace him. Newsom is not allowed to appear on the list of replacement candidates.

The only time a California petition succeeded in forcing a gubernatorial recall election was in 2003, when Democratic Gov. Gray Davis was removed and Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected to replace him. There were 135 names on the replacement ballot, and many are expected again should Newsom face a recall.

Several candidates have already declared themselves, most recently Republican Caitlyn Jenner, the 1976 Olympic decathlon gold medalist, reality television star and transgender rights activist. CapRadio reports that others include former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, businessman John Cox and former U.S. Rep. Doug Ose, all Republicans...
The AP is a bit more pointed...

Quote:
...Republicans running to replace Newsom include former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and reality TV star and former Olympic decathlon champion Caitlyn Jenner, who has never run for elected office. Businessman John Cox, who lost badly to Newsom in 2018, and former Congressman Doug Ose, also are running...
The point is not to get your hopes set too high. Remember, there are two questions... 1.) Newsom goes, Yes/No, (2.) If #1 is "Yes," who replaces him? That's two hurdles, not just one. Without a viable replacement, it might be difficult to get a "Yes" to the first question. While "anyone but Newsom" might work for most of us, the issue would be whether it works for the majority of voters in this State.

Isn't today the day the counties verify their recall signatures and the state declares the recall is on? I've been monitoring the news during the day and nothing. I thought there was something significant about today (29th) in relation to the recall.

Today was the final day for counties to certify their counts Secretary of State Calendar.

Easily enough signatures, recall electioneering is in process.

Well, I guess the recall process is not popular with the Left, at least here in California...

Letters to the Editor: Recall foes are seriously mistaken if they think Newsom can coast to victory

Quote:
To the editor: Nicholas Goldberg’s column predicting that recall elections may become a permanent Republican strategy in California is flawed in several respects.

First, even if the recall mechanism isn’t perfect, it serves as a last-resort voter tool to remind our politicians that they ultimately report to the people.

Second, Goldberg implies that qualifying a recall for the ballot is easy...

Third, Goldberg says that the recall could cost the state up to $400 million...

...if Senate Bill 10, which would end single-family zoning in much of the state, makes it to Newsom’s desk and he signs it before the election, even Democrats and independents who are homeowners will take a hard look at voting yes. This is one wildcard that recall foes aren’t considering.

You can’t just blame the recall exclusively on Republican extremists...
Naturally, 2 of the 3 letters were negative...

Quote:
... It would be reasonable that those who want to remove Newsom from office should pay for this election. Why should those who do not want to recall our governor have to pay for it?...

...I thought he missed one simple change that would reduce the appeal to Republicans of pursuing recalls.

Instead of having a simultaneous election on whether the governor should be recalled and who should replace the governor if more than 50% vote to remove him, just hold the yes-or-no recall vote. If the governor is recalled, the elected lieutenant governor would fill the vacancy to become the new governor...
Unfortunately, at least for me, the link in the first letter to the Goldberg column is hidden by a paywall.

Still do not know who can be a viable candidate to replace Satanist Newscum, only time will tell.

Newsome will survive, he'll then cite a vindication and claim a mandate. Having gotten past the recall he'll feel embolden to do almost anything he wants.

Winning the recall will become a badge of honor, the martyr who made it through. There will not be a recognition that a significant portion of the population wanted him gone only that those that did had taken their best shot and they've had their say.

Around that time some portion of the trillions will hit and some roads will get paved, your neighbors will be down at the car dealership looking to buy an EV and all the masks will be off. For many, Newsome getting past the recall will be like a breath of fresh air until the next big fire.

That was always the risk of the recall, if it didn't work whatever was seen as bad will only go faster and father in that direction. Its like the speeder doing 120 and the cop chasing them runs out of gas, the radio doesn't work and there is nothing but 20 miles of straight road ahead. Think they'd slow down and go back and say "You know what? I was wrong, give me the ticket and I'll slow down"

Not sure if this was answered already, but why is there such a long period of time between the recall vote being certified, and the actual recall election happening? I'm hearing September???

By then, yes, everything SharedShots said will have become true, and Californian's will have largely forgotten exactly why they were mad at Newsom in the first place.

Politics is fickle...
