Just 6% Of Californians Want Caitlyn Jenner As Governor, New Poll Finds




A dismally low 6% of California voters said that they would consider voting for Caitlyn Jenner against Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) in the state’s upcoming recall election, according to a new UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies/LA Times poll.

Only 6% of the 10,289 California voters polled April 29 to May 5 said they supported Jenner, including just 13% of Republicans.

Nearly half (49%) of voters do not want Newsom to be recalled, versus 36% who support his recall, and 52% approve of his job as governor.

Jenner had the lowest support among the Republican candidates polled, as compared with 22% for former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and businessman John Cox and 14% for former state Rep. Doug Ose.



“There doesn’t seem to be a significant constituency for her candidacy,” pollster Mark DiCamillo said.

“Even among Republicans, only 13% say they’d be inclined to vote for her,” said DiCamillo. “It’s a very poor showing.”

Jenner’s campaign has already faced several speed bumps as her past support for Donald Trump has resurfaced as well as her recent opposition to transgender rights and alienating comments about homeless people.
