News, Column: California voters don’t like where the state’s headed. But they still want Newsom in office : detailed suggestions and opinions about Column: California voters don’t like where the state’s headed. But they still want Newsom in office .
Most California voters think the state is headed in the wrong direction, yet they intend to reelect the governor who’s leading us there. That seems wrongheaded.
But it’s explained by two modern-day realities. Political polarization has gripped all of America. And in California, most voters have lost all confidence in the Republican Party. They’ll choose most any Democrat over a GOP candidate, especially for statewide office.
That and the fact there are nearly twice as many Democratic voters as Republicans. Both parties are polarized, but it’s a lopsided matchup.
This was illustrated in a statewide survey released Wednesday by the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California.
