Sounds a bit right. Whitmer-Schuette is all but inevitable at this point unless Schuette is really tarnished by his scandals, and I'm confident that's a race Whitmer would win. Lean D.

If I had my way, Thanedar would be dead last in the Democratic primary, but at least one of the good candidates (Whitmer or El-Sayed) is poised for an easy victory.

My gut tells me that Schuette would actually do slightly worse than Calley in the GE, given that he's more aggressively opposed by Michigan liberals (source: I live in Ann Arbor) and, as far as I know, he has more controversial facets to his record than Calley does. Probably doesn't make too much of a difference at the end of the day, though, as I predict a relatively comfortable Whitmer victory either way (but I doubt that it's by 11, probably 4-7).

At this point, sure why not. Never felt right for Michigan to have a Republican governor TBH. That in mind, anyone notice that these numbers have stayed remarkably status over the months? Whitmer is stuck in the low 40s and Schuette in the mid-upper 30s.

The interesting thing is that Whitmer is continually getting decent leads in these polls despite the low name recognition. It makes me wonder if this could end up being the inverse of the 2010 race, especially if Schuette's scandals get worse.

Does Schuette have low name recognition too? Could someone catch me up to speed with these scandals of his?

Jealous was hopeless too, Baker v. Hogan was inevitable.

This one had Whitmer with 16-9 favorability, which is probably about the same name recognition a random name drawn out of a hat would get, lol. Schuette was at 25-25. Whitmer led by 5 anyway.

The general election lead is nice but I wish she was closer to 50 (although with that low name recognition I can see why she ain't there yet). I'd prefer El-Sayed but I'm fine with Whitmer.

At this point I'm just hoping Abdul beats Thanedar.

I don't want El Sayed because he will lose the GE.
