A new poll out Tuesday shows potential trouble for Gov. Gavin Newsom in the upcoming recall election.
The latest survey, from the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies, still finds just 36% of all registered voters support removing Newsom from office — a number that hasn't much budged since January. But among voters most likely to participate in the September election, support for the recall jumps to 47%, the poll finds.
Poll Director Mark DiCamillo said the numbers show Newsom must work hard to motivate his voters.
"We're finding that there's much higher likelihood of Republicans turning out, at least at this point in time," he said.
