A 29-year-old YouTube millionaire is leading in a poll to replace Gavin Newsom as the next governor of California

YouTube influencer Kevin Paffrath could become California's youngest governor to date.

Paffrath, a 29-year-old who has made millions of dollars on his "Meet Kevin" YouTube channel, is leading in a recent poll from SurveyUSA among respondents planning to vote in next month's recall election of Gov. Gavin Newsom.

The survey shows Paffrath leading 46 candidates, including conservative talk show host Larry Elder and former Olympic athlete Caitlyn Jenner, with 27% of the vote.

Paffrath's share in the poll was followed by six Republican candidates, including Elder, who came in second at 24%. The 29-year-old is one of nine Democrats working to unseat Newsom.

In the tally, 51% of 613 likely voters surveyed from August 2-4 said they would vote in favor of ousting Newsom. The Democratic Party is urging voters to vote against a recall, as well as skip the second question on the ballot, which asks voters to select a replacement if a recall occurs. But if more than half of California voters support the ballot recall on September 14, the next governor will be one of the 46 candidates with the most votes.

An earlier poll by the University of California, Berkeley, and the Los Angeles Times in July had only 36% in favor of a recall with 51% of registered voters against it.

"We think in the last two weeks of this campaign if the recall looks more and more likely, the Democratic party will be forced to pick a Hail Mary back-up candidate," Paffrath said at a Newsom press event in San Francisco. "Given that we're No. 1 in the polls, we hope that's us."

The YouTuber is a real estate investor out of Ventura, California. His channel has nearly 1.7 million followers and focuses on daily commentary on stocks, housing, and stimulus. The channel has turned Paffrath into a multi-millionaire. In the past year alone, he has earned nearly $10 million on YouTube, according to CNBC.

Paffrath says he voted for Joe Biden in the presidential elections and identifies as a centrist. He has been following Newsom on his "Vote No" campaign trail which started in San Francisco last week.

The recall effort has been several years in the making, but has picked up steam during COVID-19 due to concerns over state shutdowns and the gradual reopening of the state. Several major public figures have joined in on the call to get Newsom out of office over the course of the year, including billionaire Chamath Palihapitiya, who pointed to the flight of major companies like Tesla and Oracle from the state.

Paffrath says he plans to address concerns over high taxes, as well as solve issues with elevated levels of homelessness in cities like San Francisco. The 29-year-old's tax plan would have people avoid income tax on their first $250,000. He also plans to make COVID-19 safety measures optional and says he will clear the homeless population from the streets within his first 60 days in office.

3. Place the ballot in the return envelope (the one with holes in it).

Anyone who will vote for a white liberal over a Black conservative is too racist to be allowed to vote.

The "stop the Republican recall" site is a front for white supremacy.

California will have a Black governor if we have to install him via revolution. Gavin either leaves via recall or he leaves in chains.

Racism? You mean like the racism from light-skinned foreigners who can't speak English yet still take jobs and resources away from dark-skinned Americans? Newsom is a racist projecting his racism onto his Black superiors.

Vote for Larry Elder or you are a fucking racist.

My husband and I used to be big Gavin Newsom fans. He married us in Feb 2004 in San Francisco's City Hall. Our vows & ceremony were featured on the CBS Evening News. (Annulled two weeks later by the courts, but that's beside the point). We voted for him, of course ... but are the first to say that he has been a total disaster. I will tow the party line and vote No on the recall (my husband, I don't think so), but it will be under duress. I can't just hand another state over to the Repugs.

COVID really turned the tide for us. His response has been HORRIBLE. As much as the Republican covidiots blame him for restrictions and shutting things down - that's exactly the OPPOSITE of what happened. Newsom caved almost immediately (the Huntington Beach closures/.re-openings, case in point). Newsom (and Garcetti even worse) took a Kumbaya approach to restrictions and enforcement. "We're not out to punish anybody. We're counting on neighbors working together and all of us doing what's best for all of us." way to read the room, dude. people are assholes, they are only out for themselves. I think CA is the birthplace of Karen Culture. Essential businesses my ass - everything remained open. ROSS Dress for Less, open. Total Wine & Spirits, open. The strip club down the street - open. Only restaurants, theatres and offices closed - but not even. A month into it we ordered take out from our favorite family owned Indian restaurant. When I went in to pick it up I asked the owner "How are you guys doing through all of this?" He laughed and said business was booming, they could barely keep up. Newsom and Garcetti talked a good game about masks and social distancing, but there was NO ENFORCEMENT. The clean air, the empty streets & freeways lasted all of about 2 weeks - and then everything was back to normal. When said strip club was going dull force and when a neighboring storefront strip-mall "church" was filled to capacity, no one wearing masks, we called the police. We were told point blank that they had no enforcement authority. They couldn't issue tickets ... nothing.

There are a million other fails that would make this already too long post even longer. Don't get me started on the disaster that is EDD - the unemployment insurance benefits agency. I'm NOT talking about the billions in fraudulent claims that the Repubs like to point out, but just the downright ineptitude and dysfunction of an obviously broken system - one that a year ago Newsom swore to fix with emergency measures. Both my husband and I lost our jobs with COVID as our corporate office jobs used the pandemic as an excuse to downsize. After applying - and being "awarded" with a UI benefit - suddenly payments stopped. For me, it was 3 months: I would certify, but no payment would be sent. Then suddenly, it kicked in. Now, same thing is happening with my husband's claim. Sudden stop of payments, and who knows if/when it will kick in again. We fortunately have enough savings to weather it, but if we had been living paycheck to paycheck, like most people, we'd be screwed. It is impossible to call EDD. You literally go through a 15 minute menu and THEN get the announcement that there are too many calls and your call is automatically terminated. Others, I hear, will get into an hours-long hold only to be disconnected. Online there is a contact/submit form that promised a 5 to 6 day response time - and after at least a dozen submissions over the last year or so, I have yet to get a response. On the news they say that EDD is behind on literally millions of claims - so I hang on to the hope that they will someday catch up and we'll get our full benefit payments. But I am sure this is a death sentence for many families. Newsom needs to be held accountable for this massive fail.

Homelessness, crime, water and wildfire management: EVERYTHING is a failure under Gavin Newsom.

But sure, Vote No on the recall!

the reason why no one else is getting an endorsement is they are all psychos.

Gavin Newsom is the best, and he is the only qualified and sane one. We have to keep him in office. He is a great governor too. He is working very hard to keep Californian safe.

All Dems have to VOTE NO (on first question).

Sane Republican and Independents have to do the same thing, Vote NO ( on first question).

There are registered republicans and independents who love their children.

You have to VOTE NO, this keeps Gavin Newsom in office. You know the fascists arm of the republican party want dead children in California. This is what they are saying. It is so unbelievable. The Recall is dangerous. TO you. To your children.

VOTE NO (on first question of your ballot).
