CBS News Poll in CA Recall: August 6-12, 2021

The latest CBS News Poll (and we point this out exactly because it’s CBS) shows Governor Gavin Newsom slightly leading, 52-48 percent, on the question of whether to recall him, with a four percent margin of error. In other words, close.

Possibly the most fascinating take-away from the poll, is the other question. Look at the results:

Whether or not you vote to recall Gavin Newsom, the next question will be who should replace Newsom, if a
majority of voters do recall him. On that question, if you had to decide today, would you vote for:
