California Governor Election Polls: What is favoring Gavin Newsom?

One of the biggest advantages for Gavin Newson is that California has turned in favor of the Democratic Party after the term of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a Governor of California ended in 2011. He was the last Republican to be elected as Governor of California.

Apart from this, Newsom leads Dahle among both men and women, and among voters across all age groups and racial backgrounds. He has a huge advantage among the Black, Latino, and Asian American Voters.

The voters registered as No Party Preference are mostly backing Gavin Newsom. In California, 46.8% are Democrats, 23.9% are Republican, and 22.7% are either Independent or No Party Preference registered voters.

Dahle has a slight advantage over Newsom among voters registered with a political party other than the Democratic or Republican parties.

In the metropolitan areas, Newson has a big lead over Dahle, especially in the state’s two major
metropolitan areas, Los Angeles County and the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as among
voters in the Central Coast

A major factor working against Dahle’s candidacy is that a majority of the state’s likely voters (52%) are unfamiliar with him.
