Liberal Governor’s Approval Rating Plummets

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is getting bad polling news.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D., Mich.) job approval rating has plummeted more than 10 points in the last year, according to a state poll.

The Glengariff Group, a Michigan survey research firm, found only 48 percent of voters approve of Whitmer’s performance as governor, whereas 46 percent disapprove. In September 2020, the same poll found 59 percent of voters approved of Whitmer’s leadership and 38 percent disapproved. The shift in opinions occurred most noticeably among independent voters.

Whitmer’s lagging poll numbers come after a year of reports showed Whitmer repeatedly violating her own COVID health policies. In June 2020, she joined hundreds to march in a protest during one of the peaks of the coronavirus pandemic. And in January, she attended President Joe Biden’s inauguration—an outdoor event with thousands of attendees—even though she levied a 25-person cap on outdoor gatherings in her state. She was photographed in May violating her own COVID-19 restrictions again while sitting with more than six diners in a bar.

Michigan’s auditor general is also investigating Whitmer to determine how many nursing home residents died of COVID-19 as a result of her controversial pandemic policies.

A majority polled also see the state of Michigan as on the wrong track and see Biden as a disaster.

When COVID came along, Whitmer mandated all sorts of lockdowns. In the short term, everyone was accepting of this tactic, not knowing what COVID was or how best to treat it.

However, in the months after, she continued to act like a dictator, NOT listening to our GOP-majority Congress and their thoughts.

She allowed the purchase of alcohol, lottery tix, and cigarettes, and allowed road crews to work outside but she banned:

  • motorboats on the lakes
  • sales of paint and gardening supplies
  • landscape companies from working for Michiganders
  • travel to cabins in northern Michigan
  • private work crews from working outside (home builders, trades people, etc)

Then she had her husband demand the boat storage place to have her boat in the water in time for Memorial Day weekend . . . the boat storage guy told him “NO – I’m too busy.” and then made the call public.

She also told people they couldn’t travel out of state, YET, several from her team were seen on FaceBook in Florida having a good ol time. Eventually, Gretchen also traveled down to Florida on a private jet.

Gretchen also spent time in her northern get-away while telling others NOT to travel north.

TYPICAL DEMOCRAT – Do as I say, not as I do.

Gretchen Whitmer, like her Democrat predecessor, Jennifer Granholm (currently part of Biden’s Cabinet) SUCKS!! She should have been recalled. For the record, our Sec. of State AND our AG are all Democrat women and were complicit in the ILLEGAL ELECTION of 2020!

End of democrats is near, too many failed polices, they will loose the majority of offices in the mid terms, thank you joe biden, Country does not want your failed polices, or the idiots who are pushing that adjenda of unAmerican ideas.They caught up with the clintons their lies, they will catch up with biden his lies understand Hunter’s computer finally proven factual.Time for Congress to impeach all traitors. Too many failed policies to rehash, but let’s just stay on the computer content, trading loyalty for money, mark of the bidens wealth, do we really need someone in office, who has sold out Americans, for foriegn interest foriegn money? Who is controlling the loyalty on those in office, time for full investagations into the decisions being made against America.Wake up Congress what are you going to do about this delusional denial of American laws? corruption probe into the bidens is long over do, how about it Congress ? Monday, September 13, 2021 Freedom Watch’s Citizens Grand Jury will put Joe Biden before its Citizens Grand Jury on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, and present evidence of alleged homicide, treason, involuntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment and death to children to seek his indictment. The actions of Biden have caused the deaths of American servicemen and Afghan allies, and scores if not thousands are to be expected in the near, medium and long term at the hands of the Taliban, Al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists, as a result of the recently obtained arsenal the terrorists here allowed on behalf of Biden and his cabinet. This man is now wanted for criminal actions by the citizens of the the United States once again. where is Congress on this matter?

The media is still a very powerful reality-bending force for too many low-information voters.

I hope you are right. Can you trust the election process anymore? Those who control the process, control the outcome. In Calif in the recall, they sent everyone who lives in this state a ballot,

The real question is the CHEATER criminal Democrat Party Mob leadership going to keep CHEATER Joe Biden or get rid of him before the 2022 election to save their “asses from a landslide defeat”???? The other question is will “CHEATER Joe Biden and his White House handlers fight them on their coup to get rid of him with his finger on the nuclear trigger and his mind gone completely???!!! Nobody has thought about that possibility!!!!!!! A three ring circus is about to open soon on these questions!!!!!!!
