Los Angeles, US, Sep 14 (EFE).- Democrat Gavin Newsom won the California gubernatorial recall election on Tuesday by a wide margin, according to US media projections.
Preliminary results, mostly from mail-in ballots, suggest that 66.8 percent of California voters (5.5 million) chose to keep the governor in office while 33.2 percent (2.7 million) wanted to recall him.
Although the in-person vote count is expected to reduce that margin, the media considers it wide enough to declare Newsom the winner.
The Republican-led recall referendum needed more than 50 percent of voters to vote in favor of Newsom’s removal in order to elect a replacement by simple majority from among the 46 candidates who ran.
Conservative radio host Larry Elder led that list of replacement candidates with 43.6 percent (1.9 million).
Most of the signatures for the recall campaign against Newsom were secured between late 2020 and early 2021, when the governor imposed drastic measures to curb a Covid-19 wave that made California the state with the most coronavirus deaths in the country (more than 67,000).
During that period, a scandal erupted when photographs of Newsom at a party at a posh restaurant in violation of his own restrictions were made public.
Although California is a Democratic stronghold and the polls were always in Newsom’s favor, a few months ago the margin seemed so narrow that the entire Democratic apparatus launched a campaign to support him, including US President Joe Biden, who campaigned in California on Monday.
Former President Donald Trump accused Democrats of rigging Tuesday’s elections even before the polls closed. EFE

Just one more steal for the dems. If this fraudulent election doesn’t wake people up in ca then they deserve what they get.
California is the electoral canary in the American coal mine of dirty politics and stolen elections, and THE PEOPLE better get a handle on it soon or you can kiss your country goodby.
California is full of socialist Democrats who are stupid enough to actually believe the traitorous, socialist Democrat Party’s political propaganda and the propaganda news outlets.
A piper, dressed in multicolored clothing, who was a rat-catcher hired by the town to lure rats away with his magic pipe. When the citizens refuse to pay for this service as promised, he retaliates by using his instrument’s magical power on their children, leading them away as he had the rats.
But with the Democrat Party pipers, being paid is never enough, the Democrat party wants your soul and they are leading their sheeple to slaughter.
Wake up and live FREE or wake up and be servants, wards, slaves to the Socialist Democrat Party Dictatorship. 🙁 🙁 🙁
The Traitorous socialist Democrat Party has implemented their objectives.
The “Socialist Democrat Party State” political officers, Gestapo, Woke and Cancel Culture are just getting started.
You will obey, be loyal and support the “Socialist Democrat Party State” or you will be classified as
“Enemies of the State”.
24 Aug. 2020 – Monday on MSNBC’s “Live,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
referred to President Donald Trump and his Republican supporters as
“domestic enemies” and “enemies of the State”.
SINCE They voted FOR This nonsense, they are getting EXACTLY WHAT THEY DESERVE..
Thanks to Brown and Newsom, California cities have poop on their sidewalks.
Thanks to California voters, we still have Newsom, who ran purely on a smear campaign because nobody, not a single person on the street, not one single celebrity or political endorsement, not one commercial with him for his own benefit was able to offer even ONE single thing the Newsom has ever done to the Benefit of the State of California or the citizens of the State. Ever. Let alone as Governor.
Which only proves that there is more poop in between the ears of the majority of California voters than on the sidewalks of the cities.
I lived in California all my life. 65 years. Used to make me proud. Now due to Socialist Democrat overreach with out consequences, California is doomed to become the richest Third World government in the world. I’d move if I could, but circumstances prevent it. So I am here, part of the Conservative Resistance, doing what ever I can in any way I can despite the limitations I am confronted with. May the good fight go on.
THat’s also assuming they ACTUALLY VOTED him to stay, and it wasn’t fraud that kept him there.

Great… now he can get back to running ALL the business’s out of the state or into the ground along with increasing homelessness and racism … and lets not forget the ever growing illegal alien (un-vetted of course) population…. and brainwashing the children into hating their home land for NOT being communistic socialist. All being orchestrated at the same time while completely bankrupting the entire state. Just doing his part in the new world socialist order. You have to omit … he IS very talented that way
All the while, CODDLING illegals, criminals and the homeless, AND PUNISHING gun owners, and businesses… Makes me want to know, What sane person, would EVER MOVE to that state?!
Shocker. Like facing a jury of bubbas who are all related to each other . With the mail in ballots (vote early-vote often!) continuing to flood in the results were not unexpected. The outcome of a state comprised of a majority of illegals, degenerates, welfare parasites, and ruled by hyper-wealthy plutocrats of hollywood and democrats insulated by their wealth from those common dregs, should come as a surprise to no one.
I was watching an interview on Laura Ingraham, where one woman was complaining that
“When i first moved here and registered, it was as a republican. BUT last month, when i checked on my registration before this recall election, SOME HOW I was changed from A) What county i was registered in, AND B) what party i was registered with… AND I WAS ALSO changed to WILL MAIL VOTE always..
YET I have never in my time being here, even gone to ANYTHING democrat related, but i’ve been to plenty of republican rallies.. and have NEVER even been asked Do i want to vote by mail or in person. HOWEVER IT WAS NOT that way, during the 2020 presidential election...
SO HOW could they have changed my registration like that. AND WHEN did it get changed. ”
She also mentioned her brother had the SAME happen to him. Which makes ME wonder, JUST HOW MANY Other republicans out there, had the SAME HAPPEN to them!>!?!?
Nice going California – hope you are very proud. A state is a reflection of its inhabitants. Glad I visited there before pooping on the sidewalks became fashionable.
Amazing. Homeless camps, no consequences for crime/theft/assault, wildfires due to inept forest management, climate hysteria, never ending COVID lockdowns. None of that swayed the voters to choose someone else to take the helm?
You get what you vote for, California! Enjoy the continuing misery.
When i saw it, i was like “HOW?”
Wasn’t damn near ALL the republican voters, and over 30% of the DEMOCRAT voters calling for his recall??
SO HOW THEN did he win 64% of the vote?!
give a regressive liberal socialist democrat ..one millionth of and inch….(the existing voting fraud)… and they’ll take 47 kajillion light years… claiming you are the problem and they are the victims. one option left…. the very thing this great nation was founded on.
Is any unbiased, intelligent, rational, and informed individual really surprised by the outcome of this recall election? The Democrats are so proficient at committing both retail and wholesale voter fraud that they rarely lose any important vote that benefits their leftist cause. Unless integrity can be restored to our election process, the Democrats will continue to elect candidates that take our nation down an increasingly oppressive, divisive, and economically destructive path.
Nope Helen Keller could have see that coming. No surprises here!!!
The way things are going, i am seriously wondering, WHY EVEN BOTHER voting in 2022, with this SHEER LEVEL OF FRAUD being not just overlooked, but in many ways, condoned? Its getting to the point, that there is NO reason to bother voting, as THE actual VOTES don’t matter…
>> WHY EVEN BOTHER voting in 2022, <<
Let's not even think about going down that road. VOTE!
BUT if no matter HOW MANY OF us get out and vote, the leftist fraud machine, GENERATES UP a few thousand or even million more votes, to ensure THEIR candidate wins, regardless, WHAT then is the point??
What did you expect. The Republicans have refused to acknowledge and correct the problems that exist.
Believe only some 30% of the CA voters are Republicans, so even if they all voted it would make no difference. That’s why the Dems are trying to move all the illegals into “Red States” to change future election results in their favor.
BUT if 30% of the state are republican, and by MANY POLLS, 30% of the # of DEMS in the state were ALSO calling for the recall, WHY THEN was the vote 64% NO.. IF anything it should have been 55% or so YES!
“We’ve left NOTHING to chance!” gavin newsom
Congrats to you California progressives for not electing the FIRST BLACK GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA. You just missed having a GREAT one.
Eat that Obama. It never meant squat outside of the gimmick value!
Once again, Diversity and inclusiveness ONLY applies to conservatives.
The only way for Grusome to win was through fraud. Even a lot of commucrats voted against him. But CA set the protocol for election fraud (Cox actually won first time around) for the entire nation therefore pulling off the biggest voter fraud in history and achieving their goal to never have another repub win another election and to expect anything different is abject stupidity. ZERO election reform has been done in CA or ANY state, Dominion machines have not been banned or destroyed, we’re a mere one year away from mid-terms–what could possibly go wrong. We are on the same level of third world countries now. All part of dismantling America and going fast.
Just goes to show there really no help for the stupid
That’s why the next time a massive forest fire wipes out a town out there, i will not have ANY SYMPATHY what so bloody ever.. The same for the next time crooks kill someone or an earthquake hits etc.. I have utterly and totally lost ALL sympathy for commiefornia..
