Cook Political Report moves Michigan governor’s race from ‘toss-up’ to ‘lean Democrat’


quote:

The nonpartisan election handicapper Cook Political Report moved the Michigan governor’s race from “toss-up” to “lean Democrat” almost a week before the GOP chooses its nominee to take on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).

The Republican primary has been chaotic, with five candidates, including two of the front-runners, being removed from the ballot after the state Bureau of Elections found their petitions to get on the ballot included false signatures.

Ryan Kelley, who then emerged as the leading candidate remaining in the race, was arrested for allegedly being present on the grounds of the Capitol during the insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021. Kelley pleaded not guilty to four misdemeanor charges earlier this month, but his poll numbers have since fallen.

Jessica Taylor, Cook’s Senate and governors editor, said in her analysis of the move that the Republican primary has been a “three-ring circus” while Whitmer has accumulated impressive fundraising numbers and a high approval rating despite President Biden’s unpopularity.

Taylor said Cook rarely would shift a race’s rating right before a primary, but Whitmer’s advantage is clear and she would have an advantage regardless of her opponent.

A Detroit News poll from earlier this month showed Whitmer ahead of multiple potential GOP competitors by double digits. The RealClearPolitics polling average shows former news anchor Tudor Dixon as leading the Republican primary.

What happened to the people who allegedly tried to kidnap her?

If the Republican Party had ANY kind of vision and message, November would be a bloodbath.

As it is, the “red wave” will barely be a ripple.

This doesn't smack of chicanery from the opposition at all. No sir. Just like that group of people that were going to kidnap that bitch didn't smack of alphabet soup spooks either.

And Lynn Cheney did the same thing to her opponent's campaign manager.

Michigan is dominated by Detroit and Ann Arbor. Not a lot of functioning adults in either place.

True. Unfortunately the vision shared by the majority of this board doesn’t seem to go much further beyond just pissing people off. It’s fun to watch the left melt, but “own the libs” can’t be the only message.

You can run a cardboard box and win in this cycle, if we just stick to these issues.

Kalamazoo MIchigan just passed an ordinance where they would stop prosecuting people for taking a shite on the street. They deserve that Hunger Games bitch.

Eventually there WILL come a tipping point for these idiots to open their eyes, just wonder what that tipping point is.

Republicans not cleaning house in every Midwestern state besides Illinois is mind boggling to me. Culturally, the Midwest and the South are more similar than probably any other two regions in this country.

New Orleans elected LaToya twice. You are giving adults in this country way too much credit.
