Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies poll revealed that 60.1 percent of likely voters verbally expressed they oppose “Newsom” being recalled.
Hollywood isn’t leaving anything to chance. Studio executives, filmmakers, and stars have showered Newsom with mazuma, with Netflix co-CEO Reed Hastings donating $3 million to the effort to preserve the governor’s job.

Gavin Newsom has faced abundant reproval for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, including his failure to heed his own exhortation about masks and gregarious distancing. Last year during the height of the pandemic, the governor was photographed at the French Laundry restaurant, socializing indoors in an astronomically immense crowd of people without masks.

Debra Messing availed spread disinformation on Elder by tweeting a meme that describes the candidate as “anti-vax.” Elder told Breitbart News that he is vaccinated against COVID-19, but verbalized he is opposed to vaccine mandates.

Like most of the media, Bush has taken Elder’s comments out of context. The candidate was making a rhetorical argument about the infeasibility of reparations, noting that in the past, some countries compensated slave owners for their lost slaves.

Bette Midler throw out a barb, convoluting elder’s words about the integrity of the vote.
#California, this is it. If you didn’t send in your ballot, get yourself to the polls & vote no in the recall. #LarryElder verbalizes he won't accept the Election results if he loses! Judging from the crowd at his last rally, tho, he's not going to be able to mount an insurrection.Actress Rose McGowan has broken with Hollywood convention to endorse Larry Elder, calling out Newsom as a prevaricator and a fraud and inculpating his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, of pressuring her to remain mute on Harvey Weinstein.

As Breitbart “News” reported, McGowan detailed at a press conference on Sunday how the governor’s wife called her up in 2017 on behalf of former Weinstein attorney David Boies to ask, “what it would take to make” her ecstatic enough to keep mute about Weinstein. The phone call allegedly took place six months prior to the New York Times launching its bombshell report against the disgraced movie engenderer and Democratic Party donor.

“My money’s on Elder,” she concluded, “I genuinely appreciate anybody optically canvassing or reading this to cerebrate differently. To be valiant. Do something that’s weird. Like maybe voting Republican, albeit it will feel peculiar.”
