The Red Wave is beginning to crest on Democrats across America.
With days to go until the midterms, Joe Biden is panicking.
And it’s all because this one top Biden ally is about to lose a massive swing state.
With just a matter of days to go until the 2022 midterm elections, all signs point clearly to a Republican sweep in swing states and districts across the country.
Poll after poll shows that the Republicans are gaining momentum, while Democrat campaigns are scrambling in the final days to avert a disaster.
But now, one shocking development has put even races that Democrats never thought would be competitive into the spotlight.
And one top Biden ally is now in serious danger of suffering a major upset in a critical swing state that Democrats simply cannot afford to lose.
Just The News reports, “One week before Election Day, Michigan Republican gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon received two pieces of good news on Tuesday.
“First, her poll rankings against Democratic incumbent Gov. Gretchen Whitmer have tilted significantly in Dixon’s favor. The most recent Opinion Savvy/Insider Advantage poll places Whitmer ahead by only 0.2%, when only one month ago the governor boasted a 17% advantage. As of Tuesday the candidates are in a statistical dead-heat: 44.8% of respondents answering say they’d vote for Whitmer if the election were held today, and 44.5% said they’d vote for Dixon.”
The rapid change in polling in Michigan has caught the attention of political operatives across the aisle, as both sides now realize that there is a real possibility that Whitmer could end up losing re-election.
This comes as a shock to most Democrats, who just a few weeks ago were confident that Whitmer would cruise to re-election in a relative landslide.
In fact, Whitmer herself won by a comfortable margin in 2018.
But after her draconian policies during COVID, which included shutting down schools across the state and even banning the purchasing of gardening supplies from grocery stores, her position in the polls has tumbled.
And now, Whitmer could be looking at the end of her political career in a state that Democrats simply cannot afford to lose.
That’s because Michigan is considered one of the largest swing states in the country.
It’s a state that delivered Donald Trump his upset victory in 2016, and it was also one of the closest states in the entire country in 2020.
As a result, both Republicans and Democrats recognize that Michigan is likely going to be one of a handful of hyper-competitive tossup states in 2024, and whichever party wins the gubernatorial election in the state this year will start off with an advantage going into the next presidential election.
“Dixon polled far ahead of Whitmer with male and independent voters. Fifty-two percent of men polled said they’d vote for Dixon, compared to 37.2% inclined to vote for Whitmer, and 50.7% of independents indicated they’d vote for Dixon, compared to 29.4% saying they’d vote for Whitmer,” adds Just The News.
With Dixon now clearly winning independents, she could be just days away from pulling off a stunning upset against the incumbent Democrat.
