.@GavinNewsom "should be worried that after years of official and unofficial campaigning, he’s still favored by less than a quarter of the state’s likely voters," @DanCALmatters writes https://t.co/ZDB7aMisdn pic.twitter.com/x2puf9PA8n— CALmatters (@CALmatters) February 20, 2018
Well folks, it looks like we may have an old-fashioned, down-to-the-wire political race this year for governor, something Californians haven’t seen for quite a few years....
Antonio Villaraigosa, the former mayor of Los Angeles, has pulled into a virtual tie with Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, the long-time frontrunner, in the latest statewide poll by the Public Policy Institute of California.
Newsom’s standing in PPIC’s polling hasn’t budged much in the last year. He was at 22 percent among likely voters last May; 23 percent in September; 26 percent in December and then dropped back to 23 percent in PPIC’s January poll.
