In the scientific ABC 10News/San Diego Union-Tribune poll, more than 500 registered voters were asked about their thoughts on the Sept. 14 election.
More than 50 percent of voters need to vote to recall the governor for the recall election to happen. Should the recall election move forward, the highest vote-getter among the candidates would become California’s next governor.
Survey participants were asked whether they believed Newsom should be removed from office, and the results showed:
49 percent — Should be recalled
40 percent — Should remain in office
11 percent — Not sure
