GOP Candidate Pulls Ahead in Recall Election Poll

Californians likely to vote in September’s recall election of Gov. Gavin Newsom are divided on whether to oust the Golden State’s first-term embattled Democratic governor, according to a new poll.

And a UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies/Los Angeles Times survey released on Tuesday also indicates that conservative talk radio host Larry Elder, who won a court battle last week to appear on the ballot, is the current frontrunner among the nearly four dozen candidates running to replace Newsom, should he be recalled.

Forty-seven percent of likely California voters questioned in the poll said they supported recalling Newsom, with 50% opposed.

But among the wide pool of all registered voters, support for recalling the governor drops to 36%, with 51% supporting keeping Newsom in office.
