California governor suddenly not so popular

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “California governor suddenly not so popular”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

What’s going on with California Governor Gavin Newsom these days? After roughly six months in office, you might think that the Democratic chief executive of our nation’s largest state would be the bell of the ball, but the most recent polling shows that this isn’t the case at all. In fact, the number of Golden State residents who disapprove of Newsom is almost precisely the same as those who approve. There’s clearly a mystery here to be solved. (CBS San Francisco)

There has been a ten point increase in the number of Californians who say they “disapprove” when asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Gavin Newsom is handling his job as governor?”

That is according to a new Quinnipiac University Poll taken between July 10-15 that surveyed 1,125 California voters and has a margin of error of +/- 3.9 percent.

In February 2019, only 28 percent told Quinnipiac they disapprove of Newsom’s job performance. But in July, that number rose to 38 percent. His approval ratings have stayed the same, at about 39 percent, but the undecided voters have declined, indicating more people are making up their minds and choosing disapproval.

As the poll results reveal, this isn’t actually a case of Newsom’s approval numbers dropping. It’s more a situation where there were a lot of voters still undecided earlier in the year and now they’ve made up their minds. And collectively, they’ve decided they’re not happy with the job “The Gavinator” (as he asked to be called during the campaign) has been doing.
