More than half of all likely voters would vote for the recall of California Gov. Gavin Newsom next month, according to a statewide survey of 1,100 adults released Wednesday.
The poll, conducted by SurveyUSA for The San Diego Union-Tribune, KGTV 10News in San Diego and KABC-TV in Los Angeles, said 51percent of those asked indicated they would vote to remove Newsom from office.
Forty percent of respondents said they would vote no on the recall.
The findings appear to be grim news for Newsom, who has worked to convince voters that the recall drive is a product of right-wing Republicans and supporters of former President Donald Trump.
According to SurveyUSA, registered Republican voters overwhelmingly support removing the incumbent first-term governor, by a ratio of 8 to 1.
