    This recall will waste millions of taxpayer dollars. If people in CA want to have a new governor, despite the safety measures enacted by Newsom leading to CA having the lowest number of coronavirus cases in the country, wait until next year when he is up for re-election.

    Obviously yes. The people performed the recall and it should play out. That's the way the political system in California is designed and it should be followed.

    It's just another waste of money by Republicans. Newsome hasn't done anything wrong. He wasn't following what the ignorant governors have done, by opening the state too soon and making more people sick from the covid. He did what was necessary to preserve lives. So the Republicans need to get over their bad selves, their ridiculous conspiracy theories and craziness.

    For overstepping his Constitutional authority? For overtaxing the state? For trashing small businesses and putting citizens in COVID jail? Absolutely Newsome should be recalled. Heck, even Caitlin Jenner could do a better job... ;)

    Waste of time and money. We’re a democratic state.

    This recall campaign appears to be primarily supported by anti maskers and anti vaccines Republicans; it has no real merit, in my opinion.

    The trumpublican Party in their never-ending quest to gain/retain unearned political power is a driving force behind a lot of assaults on prominent Democratic governors. Just think, if they can remove Cuomo and put in a puppet trimpublican Governor, they can simply pardon the trump's outrageous tax fraud crimes. They are also undercuttin California's Governor Newsome for what, exactly? This winning at all costs by any despicable means possible has got to stop. Just think how much better it would be if the Republicans Party had principles and would focus on the welfare of the country instead of their never-ending Gingrich-launched continual war against the Democratic Party. I remember the days when the Republicans stood for something other than just winning; they offered ideas, solutions to problems and engaged in meaningful collaborative compromise. … … … The Republican Party has not had any platform for years, nothing at all that they stand for. The Republican Party has defaulted to the trump for leadership since their party has no-one willing or able to step up to the challenge. McConnell just gages the political winds and finds a middle position within the Republican Senate. That is not leadership. You cannot lead a parade by marching in the middle of it. McConnell is more of the Bass Drum Section of a marching band. He keeps the band together in a synchronized lock-step march in whatever random direction they may be headed. – and he is very good at this. However, the drummers do not pick the route, the destination or even the music that the band plays. That takes leadership and there is none from McConnell. McCarthy is still dancing to stay in the middle and not offend the trump or his radicalized cult followers because they represent a voting bloc. He does not want to offend them and dares not to attempt to lead them; if in fact, he was ever even capable of doing so. When a political party’s existence is defined by the acquisition and maintenance of political power that has no definable targets or goals other than defeating their enemy, they have no goals to strive for other than defeating their enemy and discrediting them so they can stay in office - and suck up funding to tweak the scales in their benefactor’s favor. This is power without any real purpose – and acquiring power without purpose other to remain in power is exceedingly dangerous and a core factor which has led to the demise of erstwhile functional democracies.

    Unless politicians have been found guilty of crimes, they should be allowed to finished their elected terms. Recalling people because they make decisions that many people find unpopular is not a reason to lose their jobs. Let them run again in the next election and if they do not win, then they can't keep their jobs. In the meantime, American people need to focus on things that make the world a better place -- not trying to destroy other Americans because they are in a different political party.

    This recall effort is truly one of the most democratic actions a citizenry can participate in, and I support it whole heartedly. Why should people have to accept anything other than what they were expecting? Politicians lie and this is one way to hold them to account and in this case the perfect mechanism to send the message to the political class that every action has a consequence, and we as the electorate do not have suffer for an entire election cycle!

    I have family in the Bay area and in the Central Valley. There are Democrats and Republicans and every single one of them signed the petition to recall Newsom! The Republicans signed as soon as the petition came out but most of the Democrats signed it after the French Laundry! Those who own businesses had finally had it with Newsom when the restrictions have dragged on and on while other states open. One even closed his specialty painting business in Concord and moved to Boise, Idaho. He voted with his feet!

    When you are elected governor in the most liberal state, and you are too liberal for your constituents, that says something.

    I feel that Newsome merely did what was necessary to control the spread of the virus in one ne of the largest states in the nation, that people still haven't come to Jesus in regards to doing what's necessary to hasten the ridding of COVID says more about them than it does about him

    Newsom is a good governor and this recall is a waste of money

    This is pathetic. Are republicans such babies that they have to throw tantrums every time they lose? Instead of underhanded stunts and cheating, did it ever occur to any of you to earn votes by doing what’s right for the people rather than what always looks like you feathering your nests? Weren’t you raised by decent people? If you were, you keep dishonoring them. Shame on you all.

    IT is up to the voters of California - not the members of CAUSES
