Gavin Newsom will lose the California Recall Vote [Dave in Fla]

Ha! We'll see.
- Dominion

I said vote, not election, you tiresome overused stinky sock.

The California Recall System

Ace posted on August 6th about a new poll from Survey USA showing Newsom is in trouble in the recall election. In the comments it was obvious that a lot of people don't know how this election works and are making uninformed assumptions about expected results.

On September 14th, California will hold a special election. There will be a single topic on the ballot, whether or not to recall the governor.

The ballot has two questions:
1) Should Governor Gavin Newsom be recalled?
2) If the governor is recalled, who will fill out the rest of his term?

If 50%+1 votes are received with a "yes" on question 1, then Gavin Newsom is no longer the governor. His name is not allowed to be listed as an option for question 2, even as a write-in. The person who will serve out the rest of his term is the top vote getter from the 46 names that are listed in question 2. Even if the top vote is 18%, the most votes wins. There is no runoff.

Newsome is in Trouble

If Newsom is in trouble in California, it shows you how deeply unpopular, at a core, lockdown policies really are nationwide. Because that is the most favorable audience for a lockdown in the country.
- Robert Barnes, Civil Rights Attorney

I started paying attention after listening to Richard Baris and Robert Barnes discussing this on their "What are the Odds" YouTube broadcast on August 2nd. They were digging into the poll conducted for the LA Times by UC Berkeley. Barnes started the subject by saying that he had changed his mind on the recall election after digging into the crosstabs of the Berkeley poll. He noted that Newsom was doing very badly in key demographics. For example, "keep him" leads by 16 points among Hispanics, where that lead should be 40 points. Newsom's support among blacks is under 80%, a serious warning sign. Newsom also is being supported in only two geographic regions, Los Angeles metro and west side, and the Bay area. He is losing in the Central Valley, Orange County, Inland Empire, San Diego, and North California. Even the very wealthy areas of the Central Coast are only barely in favor of keeping Newsom.

Survey USA released a poll last week that showed an even more dramatic result, with recall winning 51-40 among likely voters. This poll asked for vaccination status, and found that among those vaccinated, recall wins by 4 points, but among the unvaccinated recall is winning by 40 points (67-27).

Problems with these polls

I wrote last year about polling mode problems. The Berkeley poll is a perfect example of a flawed mode that results in a biased result. Their methodology was to send 5700 email requests to participate in a survey. They received 3200 responses that were then included in the poll. While 3200 is a decent number, the methodology alone is highly skewed toward young, urban, professional class respondents. It's been shown that work from home liberal women flock to this particular methodology. This mode always ends up with results that are skewed toward liberal upper middle class, the exact demographic that supports Newsom and Lockdown Theater.

Survey USA suffers from the age-old problem of small sample size. They only have 613 likely voters in their final numbers. This makes their result showing Newsom losing by 11, suspect. There were only 25 blacks in their likely voter pool. The non-white sample size is too small to be valid and doesn't track with the Berkeley results.

2020's Most Accurate Pollster

Baris has been separately polling congressional districts CA-16 through CA-21, which span the central part of the state, especially Fresno. When he looked into his data, he saw some very bad numbers for Newsom in this portion of the state.

CA-21 is a Mexican American district in the central valley. It is generally a 50/50 district, and the current representative is David Valadao, a Republican who voted to impeach Trump. While Valadao won by less than 1 point, Biden won the district by 10. In this district, recall is currently winning by 21 points. Baris is finding the follow results when broken down by education and race.

CA-21 Education (recall yes or no)
Pre-high school - Yes +35
High School/GED - Yes +15
Some College/Associates - Yes +10
Bachelors - Yes +10
Graduate Degree - No +30

CA-21 Race (recall yes or no)
Hispanic - Yes +1
White - Yes +17
Asian - Even
Black - Yes +10

The only demographic that supports keeping Newsom are those with graduate degrees. Baris's results show the sampling bias in the Berkeley poll. CA-21 is the same region that Berkeley polled as Central Valley. Where Berkeley found recall winning by +14 in this region, Baris found +21, a 7 point difference. Note that Survey USA found recall supported 58-33 in this region, a 25 point lead.

When looking at all 6 districts, which span from the coast south of the Bay area, all the way to the Central Valley, Baris breaks down the voters by employment status.

CA-16 to CA-21 Employment (recall yes or no)
Retired - No +19
Unemployed, not looking - No +17
Part time - Yes +17
Full time - Yes +11
Part time, want to work Full time - Yes +19
Disabled - Yes +19
Students - Yes +15
Small Business Owner - Yes +18

In the central part of the state, the only people who want to keep Newsom as the governor are people who aren't working. They are either retired or they are happy to sit at home collecting benefit checks. This portion of the state is heavily dominated by working class voters who are not part of the professional class. These districts are agricultural and industrial. Most importantly, these voters are heavily ethnic and tend to vote Democrat. The El Salvadoran community is 3:1 Democrat, but is currently 50/50 on the recall.

How will the Democrats Cheat?

Frankly, it is depressing to have to spend time discussing this in every post. But here we are, the conventional wisdom is now that no level of voting against a Democrat will be sufficient to win. Honestly, I will be completely unsurprised to hear on September 15th that Newsom managed to squeak out a 400 vote win and retain the governorship.

But Newsom and the Democrats made this harder on themselves by making 3 strategic mistakes.

1) Early election - They moved this election up to try to limit the ability of other candidates to organize. This has worked against them now that they are behind and need to get their less reliable voters in LA and the Bay area to the polls.

2) No recognizable Democrat - Newsom and Pelosi blatantly ignored the advice of Willie Brown, who had been hearing rumblings that the recall has a good chance of winning. He advised putting a well known Democrat on the ballot as a safety measure. He was overruled and instead there is no Democrat with name recognition running. Survey USA has Kevin Paffrath, a YouTube influencer, leading on Question 2 simply because he is the only person with a (D) next to his name that anyone has any familiarity with. Even Newsom doesn't have a (D) next to his name. because he forgot to include it on his ballot application. By the way, if you are worried about Paffrath, note that Berkeley has him polling 4th at 4% behind 3 Republicans.

3) Absentee ballots statewide - This is the primary Democrat strategy in California now, send absentee ballots to every registered voter, then send out ballot harvesters to get them turned in with the "correct" vote filled in. But this time it might work against them. Newsom's strong support is in the affluent professional districts that were going to turn out to vote anyway. What they have done is send a lot of ballots to working class voters that were less likely to vote, but now might vote anyway. Democrats just made it easier for them to vote, and they are leaning hard toward voting yes on the recall. This is compounded by the short election cycle, it is harder to get the harvesters into the field, and it is harder to recruit them in the first place, since harvesters are in the demographic that wants to recall Newsom.

The Democrats have their work cut out for them. The way they win statewide elections is to assume that they will get a decent vote share out of the ethnic districts in the Central Valley and from the LA suburbs to offset the losses they get in San Diego and Orange County. And in recent years they haven't even been losing in those areas because Independent and 3rd party voters are voting for the Democrat. With this baseline of a legitimate vote, they run up the count in their strongholds of LA County, the Bay area, and Oakland. This is done through traditional machine politics as old as Tammany Hall. They bus voters to the polls, encourage their voters to vote through pressure politics, and even "enhance" the vote as much as needed by controlling the election system in their strongholds.

Since 2018, they have upped the game to use ballot harvesting to start winning in other areas of the state where they don't control the election system. Multiple long term Republican incumbents lost in 2018 by putting canvassers out to collect ballots from voters who traditionally don't vote. While these votes may or may not have been fraudulent, the county election systems were not obviously corrupted in these districts. By law they had to accept and count these votes.

But now the Democrats have a self-inflicted problem. The districts that they need votes from are not ones that they control to the point that they can just manufacture additional votes. They need to use ballot harvesting in these districts, but the time frame available to do so is short. There is a real danger that they don't have enough registered voters in their stronghold districts to overcome the votes in the rest of the state, even if they were to report a 100% turn out.

There are still a decent number of undecideds, and it is possible that the Democrats will find a way to get the undecideds to vote for Newsom. But so far, core Democrat ethnic working class constituencies are "yes" on recall by about 7:2. We might be looking at a repeat of Mike Garcia's win in the May 2020 special election for Katie Hill's seat. He won by 10 points by winning every demographic in the district. This is not a good place for Newsom to be 5 weeks before an election.

++++
Provisional ballots fill that final gap. >100% turnout is a route occurrence. I suspect they'll be able to pull it off, but it will come on the back of impossibly high turnout for a one-off special election. No one will question that turnout.

Posted by: Joe Mannix (Not a cop!0 at August 10, 2021 11:25 AM (Jsjd7)

43 There's also a recall of the DA in LA County, Dave.

Which might be material to the phenomenon you don't mention (I think) - recalls do not generally have normal turnout dynamics, like other special elections.

So in the LA area, a key reservoir of robot votes for the Dems, it's possible a disproportionate % of "angry/recall the bastids" voters will vote.

Another item on the scale against Newsom.

CA is likely unfixable, and a Republican winning means that the Republican is to blame for everything since Moonbeam's first administration. It would be the ultimate scapegoating opportunity.

===========

If a GOPer wins it, they should spend their entire tenure trying to fire as much of the bureaucracy as possible while vetoing every piece of legislation that comes to their desk.

Instead, they will try to forge some kind of huge compromise bill on something, spending every iota of political capital on it, and it will be a complete disaster that gets the GOPer nothing of what they say they want.

Plus with the fires raging in the conservative parts of the state (weird how that happens huh, but that is a different issue) tens of thousands of people affected will have more pressing things to worry about than voting on a recall.

Right, they could be happy to let Newsom go if he's more trouble than he's worth in that billet. Not like they can't put him somewhere else later. I'm sure being related to Pelosi has its privileges.

But his departure seems about as interesting and important to me as the Hollywood crap that consumes 50% of the blog, regardless of the "topic".

Who cares? Cuomo was going nowhere, had no effect on anything other than an already declining NYS. Other than as a monument to the kind of talentless, dumb, corrupt, nasty, empty-headed POS that Democrats now elect with regularity, what was Cuomo anyway? Pretty much a nothing.

122 Elder as governor would be absolutely a good thing and an improvement. He is extremely unlikely to prove as weak and useless as Ahnuld. And he can definitely make a difference just as a partial brake on the idiocy.

Jerry Brown, in the early part of his last term, was just such a brake. He even vetoed "gun control" legislation. His complete, bizarre, unexplained, and utter collapse towards the end (he signed, without comment, the same "gun control" bill he had vetoed - with a detailed and sort of vicious veto message - the year before - !!!) obscures that.

Posted by: ... at August 10, 2021 11:26 AM (Psuwu)

There's a level of cheating that goes on pretty much all the time, and then some levels of cheating that tend to only get rolled out for bigger elections, and the recent level of cheating was at a level of coordination and magnitude that we haven't really seen before. State-wide popular elections are easier to cheat because the fraud can be concentrated in the cities.

One might reasonably infer that they were more restrained in the past because they were afraid and posit that since that's no longer a concern they'll be more extreme going forward. It's also possible that they show more restraint but the general pattern in other coutnries is that these things just get locked in over time.

Another thing not mentioned, which I have noted in my comments about this topic recently, moving the recall up a few months puts it right towards the time of what might prove to be politically fiery school shut-downs (more "remote" non-learning). If in-person schooling is pulled away at the last moment, it *will* be a gigantic provocation of the mostly sleeping and mostly clueless beast (the electorate) - and would easily generate a wave effect against Newsom.

200 Yep, it's angels-on-pinheads territory, but Newsom is far, far from the worst the Dems have to offer here. On the margins, he's said/done almost normal things.

Just when the The Great Idiocy (lockdowns) began, and the issue of gun stores staying open as "essential businesses" arose, he made an incredible off-cuff statement. He basically said people have a 2A right to firearms. In context, it was stunning. It received little attention.

Related, of the Big Blue governors, Newsom was, by far, the most publicly cooperative/least disgracefully insulting with Trump during the The Great Idiocy. The two publicly praised each other's performance and cooperation on more than one occasion. And unless I missed it, Newsom never engaged in the loathsome ankle-biting that was mostly the norm for Cuomo, or Whitmer, or a few others. Murphy in NJ also avoided trashing Trump, as I recall. Might have been just vestiges of good judgement at work - trashing a president who's turning flips to help you out during a crisis is not an obvious thing to do, for everyone.

235 Not sure about "potentially powerful national candidates".

I mean, the entire context of that.

Biden was/is a complete non-entity. Not that well known, not well thought of, not liked. Period. He had no campaign. He "ran" against the most visibly popular incumbent in many decades.

Either he "won" via massive fraud, or not. Either way, it demonstrated that the Dem candidate is irrelevant. Biden was as close to a ham sandwich (to borrow the saying from the legal world) as we're gonna see. And he's in the Oval. Either way, doesn't really matter who runs. Cuomo was a comically bad public figure, worse than Biden - dumb, clumsy, crude, insulting, arrogant. Newsom's an empty suit sort of floating along, few hard edges, but also just not much at all.

And then the worthless CA politicians protect PG and E. And they let the fires in conservative areas burn.

325 >>> Presuming Elder wins you do have to ask how a no-name (sorry Larry the LIVs have no idea who you are) Republican does better then the Republican president that presided over the best economy in American history. Posted by: 18-1 at August 10, 2021 11:52 AM (DpkTQ)

Look at the Youtube links I posted of Elder on his platforms: homelessness, terrible schools, and the root of why the black community is failing and how he'll make it better. All backed up by facts in a compelling way. He will use emergency powers and the veto. A gov has not had their veto overruled since the last century, Elder said he'll have more power than he first realized.

If Elder can resonate with a fraction of the black community on these issues without being dismissed as an uncle tom, and get elected, I have hope for CA.

But the #metoo disarmed him. He didn't have the power to frighten people to keep the power. He was going to be impeached because the Democrat controlled legislature said they would do it. He quit to avoid that.

I know your pain. In the good old days we could grab ass and nobody dared complain. Today? You are looking at an Attorney General taking you out so she can run for governor, having AOC and the Squad calling for your head, Brian "The Tater" Stelter and Jeffery "WankerMan" Toobin tag teaming while you are in the gutter moaning in agony. It is just not fair, we manly men do these things by nature; we can't help it. Hang in there, it can't get worse unless you get indicted for killing the elderly. In that case you are so f**ked.

Cuomo used to be married to a Kennedy and he pretty much humiliated her by his asshole nature.

The Kennedys still have some clout in Dem politics. The pro abortion lobby was neutered by Cuomo's antics, the NYC politicos hated Cuomo, and the Republicans after losing the NY Senate were pretty much screwed to the wall by Cuomo because they did not matter after that. Same for the NY Dem Assembly members especially minorities. Essentially, he alienated everyone that might have come out to save his sorry butt.

The bill that passed is the $1T version that has most nonsense out of it. It is likely theater because the Dems want the $3.5T version with all the agenda items. They will try to push that with reconciliation.

The question for me is did this bill pass to give Sinema and Manchin cover to vote no on the $3.5T bill.

If so then this is the price the GOP paid allowing those 2 seats in GA to be stolen.

Political reality is that something was going to pass, just a matter of how bad it is. I think most of the green new deal crap is in the $3.5T bill.

The Kennedy Klan never embraced Andy, and treated him like the low-class gavone he is.

When ex-wife Kerry got pulled over she had an excuse -- it was sleeping pills not booze. Ordinarily she'd get a break as a first offender.

Instead Andy had the State Police run her through the ringer. The the local Westchester DA pounded her hard.

520 The "Jungle Vote" (how fitting) is how the Democrats have seized power in California so beware any attempts to do so in your state.

I believe that the vote scheme used in Maine is like this also. What it does is dilute everyone's vote. And if enough candidates compete (how hard would it be with DNC financial backing) that are Democrat then a Democrat is about guaranteed to be elected (selected).

It's a scheme and always was. For the purpose of seizing permanent governorship. I don't know if they use the same system for the legislature and if they do then there you have the entire scheme wrapped up. And until that somehow gets rescinded they will always have a Democrat in office.

I take the position that we didn't even need an infrastructure bill. We built a cable and fiber network across the country with largely private funds. Our interstate highway, while possibly - possibly - needing upgrading, would only get marginal improvements after throwing billions on it. You certainly wouldn't get the benefit that Eisenhower got by building it in the first pace. States and local gov'ts could just float bonds to fix bridges. Anybody that compared our roads and bridges to Third World countries has never been to a Third World country.

This bill was completely unnecessary.

571 What will the NYS GOP do now that Cuomo resigned?

They've done little in public the past two months but fundraise off "Investigate Cuomo!" --in their characteristic grifter/small-ball opposition way.

So sad that my once reliably 50-50 state has drifted so far blue. Some of this is non-natural demographics (massive influx of immigrants anyone?) but much is the GOP basically abandoning the field of competition in ideas in favor of becoming the Washington Generals.

572 >>> I long for peace. I yearn for civil politics.
But you don't get either of those things by capitulation to fascists and barbarians. You just get a chain around your neck. Si vis pacem, para bellum.

I think it was Jesse Kelly who had a nice rant on his show last night about how Christians get the "turn the other cheek" idea wrong and let people walk all over them in the political realm. Which is not untrue.

573 185 >>Now if we can get the Tappan Zee Bridge renamed.


I thought they replaced that?

They did. Cuomo got the new bridge renamed The Mario Cuomo Bridge by holding another urgent bill hostage in an emergency session. The bill as literally passed it in the middle of the night.

Everyone hates it and there are multiple petitions to void the renaming and return it to the Tappan Zee Bridge. Hopefully his resignation in disgrace will help that cause.

574 If you live in CA sign up to be a ballot harvester and record the "training." Or call them up to pick up your ballot and see what they say; record it with your Ring.

575 It's time for everyone in CA to download the "ballot at home" document, print off at least 10 copies, and send them in for all your neighbors.

Do not just send them in or all your neighbors who you think haven't voted, send them in for everyone.

If you know and trust someone, you should encourage them to do the same.

The goal is to make sure that, on election day, I mean "no more ballots accepted day", there's multiple ballots in for as many people as possible.

The goal is to make sure it's so obvious that it can't be swept under the rug that the CA election system, and any system that allows ballot harvesting, is completely, utterly corrupt, fraudulent, and broken.

576 They have deliberately created a system where the cost of a fraudulent vote is the cost of printing a piece of paper, and an envelope. You don't even need to buy a stamp.

And the law says they have to accept ballots even if there's no information about the ballot harvester on the envelope, which is to say there's no way to track who's bringing in the fraudulent ballots.

Since they've made it a game anyone can play. So everyone should play it.

577 Isn't CA now allowing them to print their own ballots and mail them in?

578 Lot more dead people in California than live ones.

579 The new rules are, "Democrats will never lose another election" even if 100% of the voters vote against them.
