The most successful Californian politicians are miserable

When you are the only competitor, you never improve. If you want proof of this concept, look no further than the “stars” of California Democratic Party these days.

When there is no genuine opposition, there is no incentive to get better. The California Democratic Party and its leading “stars” provide ample evidence for this assertion.

Those who have looked at the state of California will see that the Democrats have failed. The state of California is plagued by numerous problems, including the highest poverty rate in the country, a worsening homelessness crisis, an unwillingness to prosecute criminals, an outrageously high cost of living that is pricing middle and lower-class families out of the state, energy and water crises of the state’s own making, and a failing education system.

However, the state’s political leaders are also to blame. It has been shown through a survey conducted by the Institute of Governmental Studies at the University of California, Berkeley that California’s top politicians are, on average, below average when compared to their counterparts in other states and countries. For the Democratic nomination in 2024, California Governor Gavin Newsom is tied with Bernie Sanders of Vermont. Kamala Harris, a former attorney general and senator from the state, is currently in third place in the polls, just ahead of Pete Buttigieg, the current secretary of transportation.

So many amusing things can be seen on this graph, such as Newsom’s inability to defeat Bernie in his own state (to say nothing of Harris) Hillary Clinton ranks seventh It seems like Michael Bloomberg’s 2020 campaign left a residue?

Of all California Democrats, only 23% would vote for either Newsom or Harris as their first choice for president. As someone who has already attempted a presidential run, Harris stands out as a particularly terrible contender. If Newsom is taken off the ballot, Harris’s percentage of the vote rises to 12%, but she is still far behind Sanders and only slightly ahead of Buttigieg.

However, even among California Democrats, there is reluctance to support Newsom and Harris over an 80-year-old socialist and a nobody former mayor of a town of 100,000 people in Indiana. They are the cream of the crop when it comes to the California Democratic Party, and thus have been given the reins to run the state. Voters in California are stuck with terrible leadership but know they have nowhere else to turn.

The best politicians the Democrats in California can muster are, at best, middling.
