Democratic California Governor Gavin Newsom is close to being forced into a recall special election as the campaign against him clears 1.4 million signatures.

A governor must face a recall special election if 12% of voters, in this case, 1.5 million California residents, sign a petition to recall the state leader.

At the time of writing, 1.4 million Californians have signed a petition for Gov. Newsom's recall.

Newsom’s poll numbers plummeted to unprecedented lows due to his controversial COVID-19 policies, Poltico reported.

According to the report, only 46% of Californians approve of Newsom’s performance as governor.

That number is down almost two-thirds back in November of last year.

At the time of writing, 1.4 million Californians have signed a petition for Newsom's recall.

Meanwhile, only 45% of voters indicated they would vote to retain Newsom in the event of a recall - as 36% of respondents saying they would support a recall, with 20% undecided.

Many of those in Newsom’s inner circle are on edge due to the sheer momentum of the recall effort.

The recall campaign of the Democratic governors was launched by Orrin Heatlie, Chairman of The California Patriot Coalition, but other groups have joined the effort, including Republican Congressional hopeful Joe Collins, who launched a 28-day "Recall Road Trip" earlier this week.

"Gavin has been less than mediocre for California," Collins said.

"Instead of giving money to illegal immigrants, he should have given back to small businesses … he should have been transparent on why he chose to shut down California," Collins added.

Within the last month, the Recall Gavin Newsom 2020 movement ramped up 100,000 signatures.

If that trend continues, the campaign will meet the minimum number of required signatures to force a recall.

According to political analyst Joshua Spivak a per the LA Times, 60% of recalls results in the successful removal of the targeted office holder.

But due to Newsom's political demography, it is not guaranteed he will be successfully recalled.

“In short, the math favors the effort to qualify for the ballot, but the base of Republicans (24%) or Trump voters (34%) falls well short of the majority needed to remove and replace the governor,” said PPIC Polling President Mark Baldassare in a statement to Politico.

The recall movement has until the 17th of March to submit the remaining 100,000 signatures needed.
