Newsom's California Recall Strategy: It's Me or the Abyss

And Mr. Newsom, despite job approval ratings of 53 percent, does not have the personal popularity of, say, former Gov. Jerry Brown, his predecessor. The governor must decisively postpone the recall, said Steve Maviglio, a Democratic political consultant from California, “because if the margin is close, there will be blood in the water,” which could complicate Mr. Newsom in 2022.

The recall bulletin asks Californians to answer two questions: Should Mr. Newsom be recalled, and if so, who should replace him? If a simple majority votes no on the first question, the second is irrelevant. But if the recall is successful, the governorship will go to the challenger with the most votes, even if only a small sliver of the electorate chooses that person – a characteristic that prompted calls for reform of reviews.

Nathan Click, a former spokesperson for the governor who is now working against the recall, said Mr Newsom’s team understood early on that they would need to make their case quickly. From December – six months before the recall officially qualified for the ballot – supporters of the governor echoed the language of their official responses to the petition, denouncing supporters as “pro-Trump anti-vaccine extremists.”

In January, the state Democratic Party chairman called the recall “a californian coup», Comparing it to the insurrection of January 6. And in March, Mr. Newsom used his “state of the state” speech to denounce “California critics who promote partisan political power takeovers.”

Now, the very name of Mr. Newsom’s campaign – “Stop the Republican Recall” – aims to mobilize the dominant party in the state. Its TV ads and social media implore voters to stop the “bold Republican takeover.”

In speeches, Mr Newsom attacks the challenger in the lead, the conservative talk radio host Larry Elder, as a Trump clone who would recklessly undo the state’s progress in fighting Covid-19 infections and “vandalize” California’s identity.
