They won the White House and took control of Congress, so most assumed this would be the Democrats’ time to shine.
However, in just the first few months of the Party’s reign, Americans are getting tired of Democrats’ authoritarian rule.
Now, according to a new poll, even deep blue California might actually oust a top Democrat.
California is the motherland for the Democrat Party.
Left-wing radical politicians rule the state with an iron fist.
It was held up by the Left as the example all Democrats should strive to be like.
Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom was on the fast track to stardom.
And then it all came crashing down.
Newsom’s authoritarian nature and his clear mismanagement of the state has citizens rising up and calling for him to be recalled.
The draconian COVID regulations Newsom put in place over the last nineteen months have been the stuff of dystopian novels.
Now it looks like the smooth-talking Golden boy is in trouble.
Newsom’s tone is becoming increasingly desperate as the recall election draws closer.
In his most recent campaign ad, Newsom claimed that keeping him in the Governors’ Mansion was a “matter of life and death.”
Right now Republican challenger Larry Elder is giving Newsom a real run for his money and has even gained the endorsement of some Democrats, making Newsom quite nervous.
Newsom is trying to attack Elder on his opposition to mask and vaccine mandates, but that doesn’t seem to be working for the embattled governor.
What Newsom doesn’t appear to understand is Americans are sick and tired of the mandates and COVID hypocrites like Newsom who has repeatedly been filmed violating his own edicts.
For months Newsom has avoided mentioning his Republican opponents at all, but in recent days he’s had no choice but go on the attack against Elder.
Newsom has referred to Elder as a more extreme version of Donald Trump.
But voters aren’t buying it.
Now the Democrat Party is even getting concerned about holding California’s top elected post and both Kamala Harris and Joe Biden are set to campaign for Newsom ahead of election day.
Many political experts are already calling for the 2022 midterm elections to be a complete bloodbath for the Democrats and if a Republican is able to oust Newsom from the California Governors’ mansion that could certainly set the precedent.
And Democrats may soon realize how powerful the American people really are.
