What has caused Governor Whitmer’s sudden change of heart?
September 22, 2021
In case you don’t immediately recognize his name, he is a native Detroiter, and the former Chief of Police of the city of Detroit. On June 1, 2021, Craig retired after 44 years of service in law enforcement, and on July 21, 2021, Craig announced on Tucker Carlson Tonight that he launched an exploratory committee for governor of Michigan.
Craig was a Democrat until 2011, but is now a Republican.
Craig is opposed by BLM, who he characterized as “outside agitators” (most of them were whites from the suburbs) during the 2020 Presidential vote counting in Wayne County.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) trails former Detroit Police Chief James Craig by 6 points in a hypothetical general election match-up, 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.
Craig, who retired as Detroit police chief in June after nearly eight years on the job, announced his campaign for governor earlier this month at the urging of top Michigan Republicans.
He’s one of nine Republicans vying to oust Whitmer, who has drawn the ire of the right for her handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in her state.
Democrats comprise a greater portion of the respondents — 53.4 percent. Republicans make up 35 percent of respondents, and independents comprise 11.6 percent.
The survey, taken September 13-15, 2021, among 1,097 likely general election voters, has a margin of error of +/- 2.96 percent.
The findings coincide with a pair of internal polls showing Whitmer and Craig neck-and-neck in the Michigan governor’s race.
