According to the popular media narrative Joe Biden has a commanding lead in the state of Michigan. However, that claim is belied by the need for the campaign’s biggest influence agent, former President Barack Obama, to join Biden on Saturday in Michigan.
If internal polling did not show a problem, they would not be campaigning there. Which hearkens back to the foundational reality mentioned several weeks ago that Gretchen Whitmer’s COVID lockdown has backfired against the Biden campaign in a state they were counting on. The false narrative is running into reality as the MAGA movement surges.
Interestingly, the Michigan -vs- Michigan State football game is happening on the same day, so interest in Obama is already facing a headwind…. And the fact that Biden-Harris are keeping the venue secret highlights their effort to avoid a repeat of recent swarms of Trump supporters showing up and outnumbering the Biden crowd.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer has turned herself into a severe liability through her arbitrary and unpopular COVID lockdown dictates. Whitmer was positioning herself for a cabinet position in a Biden administration; those hopes are diminishing by the hour.
