Whats 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 nations largest state would be the belle of the ball,
but the most recent polling shows that this isnt 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. Theres 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
Newsoms 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 isnt actually a case of Newsoms
approval numbers dropping. Its more a situation where there were a lot of
voters still undecided earlier in the year and now theyve made up their
minds. And collectively, theyve decided theyre not happy with the job
The Gavinator (as he asked to be called during the campaign) has been
While this isnt totally unheard of, most newly elected leaders tend to
get a bit of a honeymoon period during their first months in office, so a
39% approval rating is definitely on the low side. And its not as if the
general electorate objected to him. In the 2018 election, Newsom beat his
Republican challenger 61-38. It was a landslide. Youd expect him to at
least be up near fifty with that level of turnout. Also, he was the
Lieutenant Governor for eight years prior to that, so people should know
him by now. Further, he became something of a liberal sensation back when
he was the Mayor of San Francisco and ordered the City Clerk to begin
issuing marriage licenses to gay couples. Dont they still love him?
Perhaps not. He may not have been in office for long and all of the
states problems cant fairly be hung around shoulders, but people expect
results and things havent been going well. For one thing, the states
urban population centers are currently being overrun with filth and
vermin. Los Angeles was recently described as the City of a Million Rats,
and other municipalities (including his home town) have similar issues.
No doubt related to the rat problem, the state is also awash in homeless
people, particularly in the major cities. Even the early estimates of the
homeless population were found to be significantly on the low side. This
leads to outbreaks of disease, is bad for tourism and makes the locals
On top of all that, the state is experiencing something of an exodus of
middle class working people. The reason is that between all the taxes and
fees, combined with skyrocketing real estate prices, nobody can afford to
live there unless they are extremely wealthy or living on the streets. One
recent study estimated that any worker leaving San Francisco and moving to
Austin, Texas would immediately receive the equivalent of a 46% increase
in income just because of the lower cost of living.
All of that adds up to trouble for any politician. And Newsom volunteered
to be the captain of this ship so he gets the blame when the iceberg is
approaching. Well you asked for the job, Governor and now youve got it.
