Michigan Democrat Representative Debbie Dingell, who predicted President Trump’s win in 2016, is highly skeptical of the poll numbers showing Biden with a huge lead.
According to The Daily Wire:
During an online event for Michigan Democrats on Monday, a U.S. congresswoman who had rightly sounded the alarm about then-candidate Donald Trump’s potential of winning the state in 2016 delivered a similar message to her fellow Joe Biden supporters. The Trump Victory campaign has since responded to the event by issuing a taunting statement swiping at “hidin’ Joe Biden” and predicting success again in the longtime “blue wall” state.
“Some people say, ‘Oh, look at the numbers.’ I don’t believe these numbers,” said Dingell, who The Detroit News notes introduced herself as “Debbie Downer.”
Real Clear Politics’ average of the latest Michigan polls shows Biden leading Trump by nearly 9 points. While a recent EPIC-MRA poll shows the Democrat ahead by 16 percent, a CNBC/Change Research poll gives Biden a narrow 2-point advantage. A Fox News poll from April gave Biden an 8-point lead.
“Four years ago, many of you on this phone call thought that I was nuts,” Dingell said in reference to her warnings back in 2016 about Trump potentially taking the state. “I was in enough communities and heard enough people talking that I was very worried about the outcome of that election.”
Trump’s campaign responded by pointing to the economic success Trump ushered in prior to the lockdowns.
