Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin aren't looking very good for President Trump come this November, but Michigan is where things look the worst.
Trump is losing support in a number of key demographics, but according to POLITICO's Tim Alberta, Trump's main problem is that he's hemorrhaging support from white, college-educated women in the suburbs of Detroit.
"It’s hard to overstate just how badly Trump is performing with this crucial demographic," Alberta writes. "Over the past several weeks, a raft of internal polls have produced numbers that political professionals here are struggling to comprehend. In Oakland County, the second-biggest voting area in the state, Gongwer reported that Democratic polling shows Biden leading Trump by 27 points; Republicans pushed back with a survey showing Trump down only 18 points."
“Honestly, all the moms I know, we are really nervous about our kids, what kind of future they’re going to have. And Trump is the one making us nervous,” ballet studio owner Jessica Morschakov told Alberta. “He’s just so angry all the time. I really believe that he brings out the worst in people, the worst in situations.”
It's a sentiment that's echoing across Michigan's rich white suburbs. Alberta writes that while it's dangerous to reduce politics to a single demographic, "anyone on the ground here, Republican or Democrat, will tell you the same thing: As white suburban women go, so goes the state’s 16 electoral votes."
