election just one day away. >> we are joined by political analyst and university of san francisco professor, james taylor. good morning. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. first up, tell us what is at stake tomorrow. >> everything is at stake. i think california's leader of the democratic party since nancy pelosi was first speaker of the house, is at stake. the democrats are the most motivated, the most well- heeled, the most highly profiled democrats and politicians in the country. they dominate the state of california compared to southern california. so, how gavin newsom whose backyard is in california, you know how he turns out has a lot to do with the motivation of voters. i think voters have to realize that the polls close by 8:00 pm, that they still can vote in person, voting in person actually helps a lot of people who get paid for occupying the operations of voting, and then also, that you know, that this
6:46 am
is a tremendous vote and election with national implications. the whole world is watching. >> let's talk about the latest polling. newsom seems to have really pulled ahead in the past few weeks. after being neck and back. a recent survey estimates 57% of likely voters will vote no on the recall, while 43% will say yes to removing him from the state's top elected office. >> now they are saying republicans need a historic polling miss, so what changed in the polls? >> again, and the outstanding august campaign, i think when elizabeth warren spoke in to the gubernatorial race, that changed everything. it was subtle, but she is very popular in california amongst many democrats and so elizabeth warren was one thing, but then you realize that the democrats have the ability to bring the president, barack obama, joe
6:47 am
biden, harris, sanders, they can bring any national democrat, where the republicans don't have the same ability, even kevin mccarthy who is from southern california doesn't have that appeal across the state, so republicans can't bring anyone in to the level of these high profile democrats, and that is the handicap with them. >> even if newsom gets out of this okay, are there potential political ramifications of this recall? >> yes, i think so. some of the polling also suggests that one of the main outcomes is that voters are upset and voters want about 70% real reform in the threshold for being able to initiate a recall. 10 to 12% is the threshold from the previous election of turnoff. that is just so low, that and it doesn't have to be with cause, it is not like this is baseball and this is abuse of power abusive office, it is simply if you don't like the
6:48 am
governor in california at any particular time, if you can get enough signatures, and because of his mistake of going out to the restaurant, it can actually spark a real sort of grassroots motivation and the problem here is, the republican, the national republicans are not committed to this. there is a consequence, this will have you know, this will backfire i think in california, on california republicans, people think this is the california republicans but this really was a bunch of individuals and larry elder is the most well-known. >> good information, political analyst and university of san francisco professor, james taylor, thank you for being here. >> thank you for having me. >> we appreciate it. it is now 6:48 am. mary, you have a beautiful shot down there today. >> a gorgeous view as we start off our monday, happy monday to you and check it out, here is a live look with the salesforce tower camera as he looked east across the bay, to mount diablo this morning, a little bit of hayes, we love the golden colors in the sky. we are looking at temperatures
