Gavin Newsom Approval Rating 2022 [Updated]

In the general election in November, Newsom will face Brian Dahle in his bid for reelection to a second term. Gavin Newsom Approval Rating for 2022 shows he is up ahead. BUT NOT ONLY Dahle Newsome is up against stiff opposition from Kamal Harris and other republican contenders for the presidency.

Let’s look at other polls to see where he stands.

Gavin Newsom Approval Rating 2022

Governor Newsom and Vice President Harris have consistently ranked as the top Democratic contenders in surveys for months; Newsom narrowly edged out Harris in early July, while Harris edged out Newsom by seven points in late July.

With the reaffirmation of California as an abortion sanctuary state, the release of off-season advertisements in Florida, Texas, and other states promoting himself and California, and most recently, his move toward the center of the party by vetoing legislation like a drug-injection site bill, Newsom’s national profile increased during the summer.

While Republicans named Newsom the candidate to target in 2024 after his early-August victory over Democrats, Harris’ surge and some criticism of Newsom from the left and right for either going too far to the center or not far enough on several critical topics have changed the game.

According to the Most Recent polls:

  • Harris, the Democratic nominee for 2024, is in first place with 21% of the vote.
  • Pete Buttigieg, the secretary of transportation, and Stacey Abrams, a Democrat running for governor of Georgia, are tied for second place with 7% of the vote.
  • Newsom, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, and Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts all have a dismal 6% of the vote.

Another Yahoo News/YouGov Survey poll revealed something comparable as well. According to the survey issued on Tuesday, California Governor Gavin Newsom has a higher chance of defeating prospective Republican contenders in the 2024 presidential race than Vice President Kamala Harris.

According to the survey, Californian contenders like Harris and Newsom performed almost as well as Trump and Biden. According to the study conducted in late June:

Biden Approval Rating 2022

  • President Joe Biden would only defeat former President Donald Trump in such a contest, 42% to 40%, with 18% still undecided.
  • Biden would lead Florida Governor Ron DeSantis by a margin of even more significant 41% to 37%, though with a larger 22% uncertain group.
  • A matchup between Harris and Trump ended in a 41%–41% tie, with 18% remaining uncertain.
  • Biden and Harris each received 41%-37% of the vote, with 22% remaining undecided.
  • In a contest between Newsom and Trump, Newsom performed better than Harris, with a slim 40%-39% lead and 21% unsure.
  • Biden is currently the early frontrunner among Democratic voters compared to the Californians.
  • Compared to Harris’ 25% and Biden’s 31%, 39% are not confident about Biden’s future in government.
  • People would want Biden back even more if Newsom were elected because his approval rating is 18%, compared to 37% for Gavin Newsom Approval rating and 40% for those who are unsure.
  • Former Vice President Mike Pence of Indiana, another highly regarded early GOP candidate, was not placed with any of the three Dems but would also likely lose to all three, given that poll respondents preferred Trump over Pence in a ratio of 61% to 18%.

Of course, they are extremely early and preliminary surveys. Even though midterms have not yet occurred, these figures could significantly change even by the fall at this time because there are so many unknowns. However, it demonstrates that Newsom is not in as good of a political position as other contenders at this time.

Most of Newsom’s positions aim to discredit Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, who is running for President as a Republican. By urging Floridians to move to California, where people still uphold “freedom to choose, freedom from hate, and freedom to love,” he sought to sour the affection for DeSantis.
