California Needs to Listen to its Elder

A long shot, but it would be a sea change if Elder won in California.

A new poll has revealed conservative radio host Larry Elder is gaining popularity with California voters as Gov. Gavin Newsom faces a recall election in September.


The Emerson College/ Nexstar Media poll, published on Friday, found 48 percent of voters still want Newsom to remain in office, even as momentum for a recall grows. 43 percent of people polled now say they will vote to recall Newsom – up from 38 percent in March.


If Newsom is removed from office, there are 40 candidates currently vying to replace him – and the new poll shows Elder leading the pack.


The 69-year-old Republican gets 16 percent of the vote share among those candidates, ahead of businessman John Cox and former San Diego mayor Kevin Faulconer, who are tied in second place with 6 percent respectively.


Meanwhile, the poll shows Caitlyn Jenner struggling to gain traction among voters despite widespread name recognition. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is polling at just 4 percent.

    Elder would be an excellent governor, as long as he can do handle the bureaucracy.
    Newsome is a disgraceful governor and needs to be removed.
    But California gets what they deserve. They vote Blue, so, they get the tyrannical government and governor they deserve.
    If California votes Newsome back in, they deserve the crime, corruption, the tyranny and liberal politics and it’s time to put a fence around California and let no one out.
    They deserve who ever they put in charge of their useless liberal lives.
