A new poll is now showing that California Governor Gavin Newsom may be in far more political trouble than many realized.
As The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s approval rating dropped significantly over recent months, according to the results of a new poll.
Only 50% of likely California voters said they approved of Newsom’s job performance as of March, according to a Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) poll. The same PPIC poll found Newsom had a 57% approval rating among likely California voters in January.

Newsom is up for reelection Nov. 8 after surviving a recall election in September 2021.
California voters’ apparent frustration with Democrats also extended to President Joe Biden, who saw his approval rating fall from 49% to 46% among likely voters in California between January and March, the poll found.
California has seen both its rate of homicide and visible homelessness soar to record new levels during Newsom’s tenure.
