Posted on 10/11/2018 11:58:39 AM PDT by edwinland
Former state Sen. Gretchen Whitmer (46%) leads Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette (38%) in the race for governor while U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow (51%) leads African-American businessman John James (42%) according to a statewide poll commissioned by the Michigan Chamber of Commerce and conducted by Mitchell Research Communications of likely voters in the upcoming November Election.
We are seeing the impact of the brutal battle over Brett Kavanaughs confirmation in this polling. In our mid-September poll, we had Stabenow leading James by 13% and Whitmer leading Schuette by 10%. Other polls have had the margin in both races much wider.
The Democrats 13% lead in the generic Congressional ballot question ... has been cut to just 5%, a huge change in less than a month.
Whitmer and Stabenow are in a good position today, however the race is tightening and with a month to go, a great deal can happen. As late as mid-October 2016, Hillary Clinton led Donald Trump by double digits in Michigan according to the RealClearPolitics.com averages. This race is far from over at this time, Mitchell concluded.

If that were true you would see improvement for the GOP in Senate races are in Republican strongholds but deterioration in States like Michigan. But the opposite is happening.
Not in MI but I’d really like to see Stabenow get beaten. I saw James a while back being interviewed and he really appears to be a sharp guy who will support Trump all the way.
Heard on the radio news a couple of hours ago that James fundraising in the last reporting period was double what Stabenow raised.
DJT should sked a rally for James if he hasn’t done so already.

Hmmmmm, that seems in need of fixin’.
a statewide poll commissioned by the Michigan Chamber of Commerce and conducted by Mitchell Research Communications of likely UNION-member voters.
Now, it has a ring of truth to it.
President Trump is going to be barnstorming these states in the last 3 weeks. I predict there will be one shocking loss for the Dems in one of Wisconsin, Michigan, West Virginia, or Pennsylvania. It will be like 2016 where all the polls showed the Democrat comfortably ahead and then reality hit.
13% was a lie then and is a lie now.
He will be only the 2nd candidate I've ever sent money too. Trump was the first.
Kanye too (I don't know what state he's from but he certainly can help the GOP get more independents).
He’s going there this month!!!
Realistically I think we’re going to lose the governerships in Illinois and Michigan. I hope Scott Walker can pull it out in Wisconsin. I think the Senate is safe however.
Moderates love mob riots. Can’t get enough of them.
Oh how I would like to see Manchin go down. I’m so tired of his Last Sane Democrat schtick. I hope West Virginians are as well.
Is the barnstorming official, I haven't heard of it or seen the schedule, then again they are pretty tight with the schedule, only 3 or 4 at a time are advertised...
Don't forget NJ, and IMHO MA, I still say Geoff Diehl in MA has a shot against her Faux-ness..
Highly disappointed in Michigan apparently wanting to go back to the bad old days of Democrat rule, with puppet strings pulled by the UAW and NAACP.
“Realistically I think were going to lose the governerships in Illinois and Michigan.”
I haven’t seen any polling out of Michigan but yes, Illinois has looked liked a loss for several months now.
