Are young voters the key to Gavin Newsom surviving the recall?

Matthew Reagan | San Francisco Chronicle | September 6, 2021

Still, the youngest eligible Californians are least likely of any age group to register, or to vote.

In a poll released last week by the progressive advocacy group Courage California43% of 18- to 29-year-olds surveyed said they would vote no on the recall, 26% said they support the recall and 32% said they are undecided. Among likely voters, however, it’s a closer race: 45% support Newsom, 36% back the recall and 19% are unsure.
