Whitmer Miraculously Rejects Mask/Vaccine Mandates As Polls Show Her Trailing In Reelection Bid

Whitmer Miraculously Rejects Mask/Vaccine Mandates As Polls Show Her Trailing In Reelection Bid

Cure Found For Mask/Vaccine Mandates: Bad Polling

As if we needed proof politicians do not have morals, principles, or a heart.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer made waves in 2020 with her insane lockdowns and rules. The woman ruled the state with an iron fist, putting everyone’s livelihood at risk.

Who could forget barber Karl Manke? He made national headlines when he defied Whitmer’s rules.

Then we saw protest after protest against Whitmer. The police unleashed disorderly conduct tickets during Operation Haircut in Lansing.

Whitmer acted like a typical Democrat in 2020.

But Whitmer had a sudden change of heart this week.

No Mask Mandates! No Vaccine Passports!

Whitmer is taking a path similar to those awful Republican governors.

Whitmer and the Michigan state legislature agreed on a budget. This is no ordinary budget because it bans mask mandates and vaccine passports:

Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the state legislature have agreed on a budget proposal that includes language banning health officials from enforcing mask mandates in schools and preventing state public agencies from enforcing vaccines on employees or customers.

“The director or local health officer shall not issue or enforce any orders or other directives that require an individual in this state who is under the age of 18 to wear a face mask or face covering,” the 1,000-page budget states in one section.

The language could mean that health officials’ mask mandates for K-12 students in areas such as Oakland and Wayne counties could be null and void. Instead, mask mandates would be left in the hands of school boards and districts.

I repeat: Whitmer agreed to ban mask mandates and vaccine passports.

However, the wording is directed to the state. School districts and schools boards can enforce their own mask mandates:

“The governor has demonstrated that she believes that local health departments and local school boards should be involved in these decisions,” says Oakland County Executive David Coulter, Click on Detroit reported. “I agree with that and any opportunity to remove us from that would be a huge mistake, and I would certainly hope that she would not support that.”

The $70 billion budget deal would also prevent Michigan public agencies from enforcing vaccine mandates on employees and customers, allocate $2.2 billion in higher education funding, $50.7 billion for state agencies and programs, as well as $17.1 billion for the school aid budget.

Polling

Did Whitmer change out of the goodness of heart?

No. Whitmer wants to stay governor:

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) trails former Detroit Police Chief James Craig by 6 points in a hypothetical general election matchup, according to a poll released this week.

The survey from the GOP-leaning Trafalgar Group shows Craig, a Republican, leading Whitmer 50.4 percent to 44.4 percent among likely general election voters. Another 5.2 percent of respondents remain undecided.

I can hear people brushing it aside because the Trafalgar Group leans right.

Let’s look at the EPIC-MRA poll. Whitmer has a slight edge, but her approval rating is slipping:

The EPIC-MRA poll exclusive to ABC12 shows the two candidates separated by only one percentage point, which is well within the margin of error. Results show 45% of likely voters support Whitmer for a second term while 44% of likely voters support Craig, who is a retired Detroit police chief.

In that same poll, 52% of respondents said they didn’t recognize Craig’s name, who is considered a top contender for the Republican nomination. Another 17% said they recognize Craig’s name, but haven’t formed an opinion of him yet.

“It is clearly a horse race at this juncture,” said Bernie Porn of EPIC-MRA.

The same poll shows Whitmer’s approval rating down from last spring.

“In previous tests, we have had slightly more saying the state was heading in the right direction,” Porn said. “Now you’ve got a few points more saying it is off on the wrong track and you’ve got 63 percent giving a negative rating to the Michigan economy.”

The Detroit News commissioned some questions on the poll about COVID-19 vaccine and masks in Michigan. It found that 52% of respondents said they agree with a mask mandate, but only 33% agree with a vaccine mandate.

A survey by the Glengariff Group found that people of Michigan believe “the state is on the wrong track and that they disapprove by a wide margin of the job that President Joe Biden is doing.”

They don’t like Whitmer, either, especially independents. Whitmer’s numbers tumble with each survey:

About 48% of voters approve of the Democratic governor’s performance and 46% disapprove, according to the poll commissioned by the Detroit Regional Chamber, whose political action committee in 2018 endorsed Whitmer over Republican Bill Schuette for governor.

The latest numbers are a marked shift from September 2020, when 59% of voters approved of Whitmer’s performance and 38% disapproved, according to the poll. In May, 50% of voters approved of her performance, while 44% disapproved, the polling firm found.

Much of Whitmer’s approval decline has occurred among independent voters, 39% of whom approved of her performance and 51% of whom disapproved, according to the poll, which has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.

“Michigan elections are decided by independent voters and how she does with these independent voters moving forward will really dictate” her performance in the 2022 election, said Richard Czuba, a pollster with the Lansing-based Glengariff Group.

Don’t worry, she will be re-elected because her opponent will be labled as Trump lite and the idiot Independents and squishy Republicans will vote for the Queen B.

Just like Newsom the second she gets re-elected the mandates come back.

Democrats are nothing if not pathetically predictable.

    Hold the phone, there: it’s the Republicans who screwed up the Newsom recall:

    http://www.capoliticalreview.com/capoliticalnewsandviews/the-real-story-of-the-california-recall/

    The GOP is a worse-than-useless organization. It’s actually working against us.

    See: George W. Bush:
    https://nypost.com/2021/09/22/george-w-bush-to-hold-reelection-fundraiser-for-rep-liz-cheney/

    Trump and the Tea Party are the only political organizations we can trust.

      I think it is both as they have complementary roles in the ruling class. Together, they will ensure Tea Party types rise no higher than challengers so the system appears legitimate but without harm.

      Long-term, I am hoping for the rise of the Mises caucus in the Libertarian party led by Smith and Woods.

      The two usual parties are beyond redemption. Trump was not so much a Republican as a loose independent cannon using the RP out of convenience because of his utter incompatibility with DP “principles” and because of most people’s sloth, their unwillingness to consider any third party or independent candidate. The entire electoral system, curated by the corporate media, is rigged for the 2-party duopoly.

      A hopeful sign is the growing hatred of corporate media now that only the most dense citizen is unaware of their utter corruption. Trump turned them into a herd of panicked sheep, and their pathological fear of the man turned out to be justified. He refused, to a degree at least, to be led by the entrenched bureaucrats in the “security state” running the show. Media and Big Tech collusion with the deep state to advance the Russian Lie over four years was (I hope) their fatal mistake. Despite their silence or disclaimers the chickens are coming home to roost thanks to journos like glen Greenwald and his independent colleagues.

Amazing that she can even read the polls. Maybe she figured out that even the FBI doesn’t like her!

Banning vaccine passports is good, banning employers from requiring vaccination and testing (without reasonable cause to believe an employee is actually sick, “just because” shouldn’t be enough) is better. Even Republican governors haven’t gone that far yet, it’s disappointing.

You think this witch has woken up and smelled the coffee—or at least the smoke from the polls as her numbers go down in flames? Ya think? Yeah, I thought you did.

Opportunism at its finest.

It’s Official: Shameless Whoring Is #1 Way for Woman to Attain Oval Office.

Fortunately, Americans have much longer memories than Democrats do. Which class populates Michigan? Time will tell.

My left wing governor is all in on vaccine mandates and mask mandates. The problem is, this state is pretty low population with a high poverty level. She’s made sure to give enough people goodies and keep them comfortable so they’ll vote for her. Business owners? We got the shaft, big time but there aren’t enough of us to matter.

How many thousands of Michiganders are dead due directly to Wretched Whitmer policies?

(1) she, like Cuomo in New York, sent SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 patients to nursing homes, putting the most at-risk demographic in harms way.
(2) she banned the treatment or prescription of proven successful treatments of HCQ and Ivermectin in Michigan, going so far as to threaten the revocation of medical licenses from doctors and pharmacists.

It is absolutely despicable what this Witch in Michigan has gotten away with over the past 18 months.

Every time I see her pic, I think Stepford Wives.

She just skeeves me.

Who could forget barber Karl Manke?

I went to his shop and got my hair cut. It was the day the Mich Appeals Court told him he had to shut down.
Heard the news on the drive over (45 minutes), news crew was just coming out as I was walking up the steps.
He had 3 women in the back cutting hair and a couple beefy guys to provide security.
Karl was smart, no price posted just a basket with a sign saying pay what you want. The basket was loaded with $50’s.

LOL, this is a very funny post (perhaps unintentionally).

Anyway, people in MI would have to be nuts to vote for this woman again regardless of what she says now — but there are apparently a large number of crazy voters out there, e.g. just look at the CA congressional delegation: many of them (the vast majority Democrats) have been ensconced in Congress for decades as quality of life in CA has steadily declined — saw a recent video where Zoe Lofgren (in Congress since 1995) said she’d have to vote against an amendment to exclude MS-13 gang members from any potential illegal alien amnesty — because reasons (‘muh economy’, or something) — find and watch the video; it’s really amazing — but if she runs in 2022 she’ll almost certainly win.

    “Anyway, people in MI would have to be nuts to vote for this woman again regardless of what she says now”
    And yet, Gavin Newsom.
    QED. People are nuts.

There is a pattern in these D controlled states – Dictator gets a challenger. Challenger does well in polls. Dictator backs off (to support her coming “reelection). Dictation rises in polls at last minute (nobody has time to look into it). Dictator wins via corruption (supported by last minute “poll”).

Corruption will put her in back in office. It is planned and they are working the plan. Watch for the “last minute poll” that shows she is gaining support.

People may be nuts but it is people trusting a corrupt system and corrupt politicians/parties that surrenders our freedom. Michigan – get all over the election machine at every level or the Wicked Witch of the North will be back polls notwithstanding.

    Wretched Whitmer has nothing to worry about when it comes to re-election. Attorney General Dana Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson join with her to form a tyrannical triumvirate to control the state’s election process. They stopped the count in Michigan during 2020 Presidential election and then illegally added votes for Biden and Senator Gary Peters (GOP opponent John James) overnight when no one was watching.

    Nothing has changed in the state regarding the people in power and control over the state’s voting process. The state will continue to be Democrat. Does not matter what polls say or what Michiganders want. It only matters who controls the state’s voting process (i.e. who counts the votes).

    Until anyone is punished for the rigged and stolen 2020 election, Democrats will continue to hold power and control of anything and everything they want. Fair and free elections are a thing of the past.

Get rid of this POS. You know damn well that once she’s reelected she’ll go right back to her former commie ways, knowing she’ll have nothing to lose. Unfortunately, it’s not only the idiots who would still put her back in office that you have to worry about, but all the corruption that goes along with voting these days.

If, god forbid, Whitmer is reelected, she’ll find more ways to punish us, especially Trump supporters. Gretchen is a vindictive, wicked and vile person.

If ANYONE in MI votes for that corrupt female then there’s little hope for MI! If it’s the “science” that one must follow then a POLITICAL career should not even be a factor! You don’t sacrifice the SAFETY and HEALTH of millions of people just because you’re slipping in the POLLS! Well, unless you’re a manipulative democrat! She’s disgusting and has no business in her position now due to her skirting her OWN MANDATES! If she’s re-elected then SHUT UP!

This article quotes a fox news article extensively but only provides a link rather than give Fox news source credit for the story.
Yet, this article cites the sources in the “Polling” section.

Scratchin my head…no mention of masks in the article, one way or the other for those over 18 ?

Wretched Gretchen, Wicked Witch of the North seeking reelection panders for any votes possible. Secondary goal is enough campaign funds to obtain a charisma transplant. Good luck with that!

Standard political rule of thumb: If an incumbent is under 50% approval, they’re in trouble. My take: Whitmer’s odds of reelection are decreasing by the day, regardless of how many mail-in ballots she prints up.

It’s funny how a focus group always makes a member of the parasite class find religion.

If the whiny Trump voters turn out there will be a lot of Republicans elected next year.
