Poll reveals surprising Latino support to recall Newsom

A new poll reported that California Gov. Gavin Newsom would likely keep his job if he faces a recall, despite the fact that the state’s largest minority voting bloc – Latino voters – stand in support of his removal. …

Should Newsom be removed from office? Probolsky Research reported that 40 percent of voters would vote to remove the governor, while 45.7 percent would vote in Newsom’s favor. The remaining 14.3 percent were unsure of how they would cast their votes. …

Looking at demographics, Latino voters were the only group to have more people vote to recall (44.5 percent) than against (41.4 percent).

As white Democrats grow increasingly obsessive about some kinds of safety (e.g., Covid, third grade bullies, white supremacists) although not others (black criminals, homeless encampments), it’s possible that Democrats will run into a culture clash with the Latino lack of concern about safety.
