Newsom has faced six recall efforts since he was elected with 61.9 percent of the vote in 2018, but the current petition is the only one that qualified for a ballot. The petition was launched by RecallGavin Newsom, a group led by former Yolo County Sheriff's Office Sergeant Orrin Heatlie, and collected more than 2 million signatures by its mid-March deadline.

State officials determined recall organizers succeeded in collecting at least 1,495,709 valid signatures, the minimum number needed to trigger a recall election for Newsom.

According to polls released last week, voters are relatively split on whether they want Newsom to remain in office. Newsom's Stop the Republican Recall campaign acknowledged the recent polling numbers were not ideal in fundraising emails sent to voters last week.

University of CaliforniaBerkeley Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS). In that survey, 50 percent of respondents who were identified by pollsters as most likely to vote in the recall election said they preferred to keep Newsom in office, but 47 percent said they wanted him recalled.

"We can't afford to lose this recall," Newsom's campaign concluded in its fundraising message."The stakes are too high."Though nearly half of motivated voters told pollsters they wanted Newsom out of office, only 36 percent of all polled voters said they wanted the recall election to be successful. That percentage has remained consistent through earlier Berkeley IGS polls conducted in January and April.

Another change the Berkeley IGS poll documented was the decline in undecided voters. While 19 percent of survey respondents told pollsters in January—nearly two months before the recall organizers hit their signature collection deadline—they weren't sure if they wanted the recall to succeed or not, only 3 percent of respondents were undecided in the institute's latest poll.
