Is Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA.) gearing up to replace President Joe Biden in the upcoming election? Rumors have run rampant, and it seems like there may be some truth to them after all.
During an economic summit following a meeting with communist Chinese President Xi Jinping, Biden seemed to hint at Newsom’s potential White House run. The president praised Newsom, stating that he “could have the job I’m looking for,” in reference to his 2024 re-election bid.

However, Americans aren’t buying into the hype. Despite Biden’s glowing remarks, a recent UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies poll, co-sponsored by the Los Angeles Times, revealed that Newsom’s approval rating hit an all-time low of just 44 percent. It seems the residents of the Golden State aren’t as impressed with his leadership as Biden would have us believe.
But Newsom hasn’t been sitting idly by. He’s been busy building a national network of supporters and donors, launching smear ads against his potential 2024 GOP rival, Governor Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), and vetoing a bill that would have required judges in child custody cases to consider a parent’s affirmation of their child’s gender identity.
It’s clear that Newsom isn’t shying away from the spotlight. He’s even got a super PAC loaded with funds, ready to kick off his potential campaign.
So, will Newsom take over for Biden in the election? Only time will tell, but it seems like he’s certainly making moves to position himself for a White House run. And with Biden’s nod of approval, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the signs.
