A poll released on Tuesday showed that ‘only anemic support has surfaced’ for the ‘I Am Cait’ headliner amid the ongoing campaign to recall current California Governor Gavin Newsom. 

The survey comes from the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies and was co-sponsored by the Los Angeles Times.

The results were ‘especially bleak’ for Jenner, as just six percent of Californians who took part said they would vote to have her replace Newsom.

‘A vast majority of Democrats, Republicans and unaffiliated or independent voters said they would not be inclined to support her candidacy,’ the report said about the Republican candidate.

Jenner has been given substantial press coverage since announcing her run last month, including major interviews on CNN and Fox News.

Despite the push, DiCamillo said: ‘There doesn’t seem to be a significant constituency for her candidacy.’

The poll actually showed that 52 percent of those surveyed still approve of Newsom despite efforts to recall him.

During her first interview after announcing her candidacy on April 23, Jenner told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that she isn’t running as a Republican but rather as a ‘thoughtful disruptor.’

‘I have common sense, I see what is going on,’ she told the conservative host. ‘I have always been on the Republican side as I have conservative economic values. Socially I have been much more progressive all my life. I get it. People need help.’

‘But you can’t have social programs without a strong economy.’

She added: ‘I can get along with everyone. I don’t care if you are a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, vegetarian.’

Jenner has been in the public eye almost all her life, but has never ventured into politics – until now.

She defended her lack of government experience to CNN, claiming she is surrounding herself ‘with some really good people.’

There are several prominent Republicans challenging Newsom for his seat in the statehouse.

The recall election has not been officially called or scheduled, but is almost sure to occur after the 1.495 million-signature threshold was reached and surpassed.

Newsom, 53, has been governor of California since January 2019 and started facing widespread calls for being ousted from office due to his response to the coronavirus pandemic.
