A new poll is now showing that Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer is in a dead heat with former Detroit Police Chief James Craig in the race for the Michigan Governor’s House.

As The Daily Wire reports:

A poll of likely 2022 general election voters in Michigan found that Whitmer and Craig are even in a head-to-head matchup with 46% of the vote. The poll, by ARW Strategies, was conducted through telephone surveys with 800 people from January 4-6. The poll’s margin of error is 3.46%.

“Governor Whitmer is barely above water but remains extremely vulnerable. A narrow majority (51%) have a favorable opinion of the governor, while 48% have an unfavorable opinion. However, the intensity of voter’s opinions works against her. 38% of voters have a very unfavorable opinion of her versus 35% who have a very favorable opinion of her. Whitmer is also twelve-points underwater with Independents (42% Fav/54% Unfav), which is a perilous position for her entering a re-election year,” ARW reported.

“Chief James Craig is the clear frontrunner among Republican candidates. Craig’s name identification is nearly twice that of his three opponents. More crucially, Craig is the only Republican with a positive image (+9% Net Fav) among likely voters and he has a +11% net favorable image among Independents (28% Fav/18% Unfav),” AWR continued. “Among likely general election voters, Craig is tied 46%-46% with Gretchen Whitmer.”

Whitmer’s numbers are up from September when she was losing a head-to-head contest with Craig, according to polling at the time done by the Trafalgar Group. Whitmer has taken criticism from state Republicans over her handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The state legislature have pushed for an investigation of Whitmer’s pandemic policies concerning nursing homes, with some lawmakers accusing the Democratic governor of shaping her policies around those followed by former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Whitmer has reversed course since the beginning of the pandemic, repealing many of the previously issued lockdown orders which had made her so unpopular with Michiganders.

i have no idea why when the repub. run against a democrat and are poling so well; the other repub. won’t back down and then then the incumbent wins because the repub. vote is divided among 8 runners. i think that happened in georgia. what am i missing that is stupid.if the police chief is running neck to neck the rest of the repub. should drop out.

Michigan voters please do not trust her even if she has rescinded some of her extreme Covid-19 policies. She will do just as California’s Governor did after he won his recall election and doubled down on his tyrannical policies. Vote her out!!

We didn’t!!!!! Antrim county here in Michigan was the first place the corruption of the Dominion voting machines was brought to light. Add to that the ILLEGAL lockout of volunteers who were supposed to oversee the vote tallying and its obvious how this … this …. thing was placed into office.
