New Poll: Whitmer Leads Schuette by 11pts, Outside Groups Abandon Schuette - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON OCTOBER 25, 2018 BY ZACK POHL New Poll: Whitmer Leads Schuette by 11pts, Outside Groups Abandon Schuette LANSING — A new internal poll from Gretchen Whitmer’s campaign for governor shows Whitmer leading Bill Schuette by 11 points, 47-36. Whitmer’s name recognition (77% name ID) is on par with Schuette’s (79%), and by [DATE REMOVED]-point margin voters have a favorable impression of her (46% favorable / 32% unfavorable). By comparison, Schuette’s personal popularity is nearly the inverse of Whitmer’s. He continues to be underwater (36% fav / 43% unfav) with voters statewide, including nearly 3-in-10 (29%) who are very unfavorable to him. “Gretchen Whitmer has all the momentum in this race,” said Whitmer Campaign Manager Eric Goldman. “Schuette remains stuck in the mid-30s, and is being badly outspent on TV during the final [DATE REMOVED] of the campaign as Republican outside groups have all but left him for dead. While Gretchen is in a strong position to win this race, we aren’t taking anything for granted. Our campaign will keep our foot on the gas and continue to reach out to voters on the phones, on the doors, and online until the last poll closes [DATE REMOVED].” Outside Republican groups have dramatically slashed their investments in the governor’s race. In fact, the Republican Governors Association has cancelled all TV buys for Schuette in the final week of the campaign, and no Republican outside groups have stepped up to fill the void. Meanwhile, Whitmer and the DGA will each dramatically outspend Schuette in the campaign’s closing days. The new poll was conducted for the Whitmer campaign by ALG Research, who did polling for the Obama campaign. It included a sample of 906 likely 2018 general election voters in Michigan, and was conducted [DATE REMOVED], with 55 percent of interviews conducted via cell phone. The margin of error is +/-3.3% at the 95% level of confidence. A memo on the poll is available here. # # # Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Whitmer Wins Second Debate as Schuette Struggles to Defend Record of Filing Nine Lawsuits to Rip Health Care Away from 680,000 Michiganders Next Post   New Poll: Whitmer Leads Schuette by 11pts, Outside Groups Abandon Schuette Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

VIDEO: Schuette Refuses Three Times to Pull Repulsive Nassar Attack Ad - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON SEPTEMBER 21, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG VIDEO: Schuette Refuses Three Times to Pull Repulsive Nassar Attack Ad LANSING — Today Gretchen Whitmer issued the following statement after Bill Schuette held a press conference in which he repeatedly refused to answer calls from Nassar survivors demanding that the Michigan Republican Party pull the ad. Watch the video clip from the Detroit News here. “Three times. Bill Schuette was asked three times if he would heed the call of Nassar survivors to pull this repulsive ad, and he refused to give a straight answer three times,” said Whitmer. “The survivors and their families shouldn’t have to see Larry Nassar over and over again. Bill, how low are you willing to stoop to advance your political career? Have you no decency? It’s time for you to do the right thing and get this ad off their air. It’s a lie, and you know it. The people of Michigan deserve a governor who has integrity and tells the truth, not a craven career politician who will say anything to get elected.” TRANSCRIPT: Jonathan Oosting [Detroit News]: How do you know that, Attorney General? That Gretchen Whitmer didn’t – “Refused” as this ad says. It says she refused to prosecute. Do you know for a fact? Bill Schuette: Listen, I haven’t seen the ad. I was in Ionia County [DATE REMOVED] by eight-o’clock. I had a whole bunch of stuff throughout the day. I’m here to set the record straight about the prosecution of Larry Nassar and the fact is we received this case from the Michigan State University Police Department. And set the record straight as we brought charges, made the decision, she chose not to. I think that was wrong. And leadership is about making the right decisions. Jonathan Oosting: Several Nassar victims today joined Gretchen Whitmer at her press conference, including Grace French. She said politely and respectfully, Mr. Schuette: I ask the Michigan Republican Party to take down an ad that features the face of my abuser. How do you respond to those victims? Bill Schuette: You know again, this is about my record. This discussion we’re having here today. And it’s about the record of Senator Whitmer and making decisions. I made a decision to charge Larry Nassar. And now he’s behind bars for the rest of his life. Jonathan Oosting: So you have no response to the victims? Bill Schuette: I have not seen any… Jonathan Oosting: But you’ve heard what the victims said. You just quoted my story, so you read it… Bill Schuette: Any instance of sexual assault is horrific. And every and every victim of sexual assault deserves justice. That’s my response. # # # Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Desperate Schuette Doubles Down on Shameful Nassar Attack Ad Next Post   New Group of ‘Business Leaders for Whitmer’ Forms to Help Elect Gretchen Whitmer as Michigan’s Next Governor Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.
