The tweet literally says that it will be coming out in the future. How can you even cross the street by yourself?

Not really that unbelievable. The past few polls had hit Whitmer nearly +10 IIRC

Ah yes Mystery Pollster. They're super predictive! In spite of that, this could be an accurate margin for Whitmer if she is having a really good night.

Hopefully this margin ends up being accurate so I can look prescient.

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.

Why are people so skeptical? The race is obviously moving quickly into Whitmer's corner. She's highly popular, running against a guy who's scandal-plagued and easily tied to Snyder, running in a Dem-leaning state that went almost 20 points to the GOP in 2010, so why is it hard to believe she can't pull that off.

Poll details have been released, and it is no mystery why the GOP has decided to triage the state. The cross tabs are spelling an inverse of 2010-

Schuette favorable rating is -15

Whitmer favorable rating is +20

Whitmer wallops Schuette in Metro Detroit 57-30%, but interestingly they are tied in out-state with Whitmer leading by a .3 margin.

Whitmer leads amongst men by a 7-point margin, leads amongst women by 21 points.

Whitmer is winning the age group of 65+ years by a 28-point margin

Whitmer leads Schuette amongst independents by a 14-point margin. Independents view Schuette unfavorably by a 2-1 margin.

It's disappointing that my early endorsement of Schuette failed to create a Toss-Up Contest.

Yeah, add this one to the "safe D pickups" list along with IL and NM.

A year ago Democratic insiders were wringing their hands saying Whitmer was doomed and we needed to find a man to run for Governor. My how times have changed.

Indeed. I know a certain place that could take a lesson from this...

I'm sure Schuette would be losing by over 25% by now without your coveted endorsement.

This was nonsense then and is nonsense now. MI already elected a female governor twice, in 2002 and 2006. And Whitmer seems to run a strong campaign. Most voters don't care about gender. At least not those who vote or might vote Democratic. Same on male Democratic incumbents or candidates. If they're doomed, it's not because of gender.
