Lol @ Tom Leonard being the GOPís saving grace from total destruction.

Also inb4 Bagel declares this Weak Tilt D because Whitmer has a single digit lead

Schuette is already citing this poll on Twitter saying he's the comeback kid.

This race tightens! 55% don't support Whitmer! Trump won the state! Red wave! -> Lean R, closer to Likely R than toss-up.

Uhh this race was NEVER in the upper-teens. Plus, this is a GOP pollster.

The fact this is a good poll for Schuette shows that he is DOA.

Things get dicey when the Dem is under 50. I'm sure President Hillary Clinton thanks Michigan for those key victories as shown by the polls.

Polling average of 2016 in Michigan: Clinton +3.6
Polling average of 2018 in Michigan: Whitmer +10.3

Totally the same. Also, this isn't even a tightening since Whitmer was up 5 in EPIC-MRA's last poll.

Well, subtract 4 from the Clinton average and get the actual result...so let's subtract 4 from 10.3...and it gets us 6.3. Still not a double digit victory.

You do realize that just because the polls overestimated Democrats by 4 in 2016, it doesn't mean they will do the same thing this year? Polling errors can happen to both parties. Polling errors are especially prone to happen when the race is lightly polled like Michigan in 2016 was, because absolutely nobody thought Clinton would lose there.

Examples of polls overestimating Republican strength:
The 2012 election in general (not just the presidency, some of the Senate races were off big time including ND-Sen and MO-Sen)
2017 Virginia governor (Northam was up 3.3 in the polling average, won by 9)
2017 Alabama Senate (Moore was ahead 2.2, he lost by 1.5)
Pretty much every competitive Nevada election in the past 15 years
Even the 2010 GOP wave was overestimated. The GOP was up by 9.4 in the GCB, but won the nationwide house vote by 6.8

Yeah, I definitely donít buy Whitmer underperforming Stabenow by 15 points.

It is NOT tightening. This poll is not only 4 points within margin of error, but yesterday's poll showed Whitmer at 52 percent. Even if it is tightening (which is quite common), Whitmer will still win.

This comment isn't surprising coming from you.

The Detroit Free Pressí hot take is that the nonstop anti-Granholm ads are working. Lol. This is a Schuette internal.
