A new poll by a left-wing polling outlet in Michigan shows that Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D)’s approval rating has fallen below 50% for the first time.
Only 48% of respondents approved of the job Whitmer was doing as governor, while 40% strongly disapproved. Whitmer’s job approval had been at 50% in June after a series of scandals in which she had broken her own coronavirus restrictions.
The June poll also showed that 55% of respondents thought it was “time for someone new” to be governor, while only 41% thought Whitmer deserved re-election.
She also lost in a hypothetical matchup with a generic Republican, 52% to 41%. Whitmer is up for re-election in 17 months.
