Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer just dropped out. Millions of people are stunned — she has reached a new political low and may be finished.
According to a new poll, Whitmer’s overall approval in Michigan “dipped below 50 percent,” reported Breitbart News. It is a disastrous sign for her support in the midst of several scandals.
It is even more telling that the poll was conducted by Progress Michigan, “a far-left advocacy group,” noted Breitbart. Support for how she has handled COVID-19 is also tepid.
A razor-thin majority, 51 percent, currently “said they approved of Whitmer’s handling of the coronavirus.” On this issue alone, then, she has turned off 49 percent of voters.
Whitmer is up for re-election in 2022 during a year that is expected to be favorable to Republicans, meaning she is in danger of being limited to a single term as governor.
So far, a Republican challenger hasn’t been announced, but former U.S Senate candidate John James (R) is considering a run. He would be a formidable opponent for the embattled Whitmer.
