According to Fox News local time on February 2, California Governor Gavin Newsom’s poll approval rating plummeted, which may aggravate the possibility of his dismissal.
A poll of more than 10,000 registered voters in California by the Berkeley Institute of Government found that Newsom’s performance received only 46% of the recognition, a sharp decline from his 64% approval rate last September.
In addition, Newsom has been widely criticized for his previous strict stay-at-home order, and 1.3 million people have signed a petition to remove him from the governorship so far.
According to the report, 36% of California voters currently support the removal of Newsom.
Most of them support the Republican Party and are dissatisfied with Newsom’s performance in handling the pandemic.
In addition, less than a third of the respondents said that the governors had performed “excellently” in responding to the pandemic.
In recent weeks, the number of new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in California has declined in a single day.
According to the state’s statistics, only 12,000 new confirmed cases were reported on the 2nd, compared with more than 50,000 new confirmed cases in a single day last December.
