Washington Times: Facing possible recall, Los Angeles district attorney underwater in latest poll
Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon would lose a recall election if it were held today, according to a late July poll commissioned by a group that is trying to make such an outcome possible.
By nearly 40 percentage points — 61.4% to 21.5% — voters said they would prefer someone other than Mr. Gascon to serve as the top prosecutor in California’s most populous county, the survey conducted by J. Wallin Opinion Research found.
“The clear takeaway is that George Gascon is rapidly losing support less than a year after being elected, and that a recall would overwhelmingly pass if it were held today,” said Tim Lineberger, a spokesman for the Recall George Gascon campaign. “The voters of Los Angeles County disapprove of Gascon, his job performance and extreme policy agenda that puts violent criminals first, and places victims in the back of the line.”
