The detailed returns show even more striking similarity to prior elections. Newsom’s best performance in his 2018 victory took place in seven Bay Area and coastal counties plus Los Angeles. The data so far show those seven northern California counties were also his best seven counties in the recall, and Los Angeles was his 10th best. Newsom’s five worst counties in 2018, all in the rural north, were also his five worst in the recall. Either election fraudsters have an incredibly sophisticated and consistent operation, or the recall election results actually represent the will of the voters.
