SAN FRANCISCO - Most Californians don't want Gov. Gavin Newsom to run for president next year, according to a recent poll.
The Quinnipiac University poll said 70% of the Golden State voters oppose the idea of Newsom joining the race for president. Of those who oppose Newsom's candidacy, 54% are Democrats.
Only 22% of those surveyed do support the idea of Newsom running for the White House.
There has been speculation that the governor, who traveled to several states in recent months, was launching a presidential campaign.
But Newsom has denied the claims, saying there's enough work to be done in California.
