Daily Bread for 8.20.22: Trumpist Michels Quickly Starts Whining About Polls

Good morning.

Saturday in Whitewater will see afternoon thundershowers with a high of 74. Sunrise is 6:07 AM and sunset 7:48 PM for 13h 40m 44s of daytime.  The moon is a waning crescent with 36.8% of its visible disk illuminated. 

 On this day in 1968, Warsaw Pact troops invade Czechoslovakia, crushing the Prague Spring. East German participation is limited to a few specialists due to memories of the recent war. Only Albania and Romania refuse to participate.

The latest Marquette Law School Poll shows a gubernatorial close race between Evers and Michels, but Michels isn’t satisfied, and so, as Trump would do, he’s fantasizing. Sophia Voight reports Tim Michels questions the integrity of the Marquette Law School Poll, says he is actually ‘up 5 to 10 points’ over Gov. Evers:

GREEN BAY – After the latest Marquette University Law School Poll showed Republican gubernatorial candidate trailing Gov. Tony Evers by 2 percentage points, Tim Michels claimed without evidence it’s because “there’s a class of people out there that does not talk to pollsters.”

Wednesday’s Marquette poll showed support for Evers at 45%, while Michels was at 43% and Independent Joan Beglinger was at 7%.

During a campaign stop at the Brown County Republican Party office Thursday, Michels said he believed he is actually up in the polls. 

“If the polls say we’re dead even right now, I believe in my heart that we are up at least 5 to 10 (percentage) points,” Michels told a crowd of GOP party members.

Fox News’ latest poll also shows Michels behind Evers, 46% to 49%. 

These aren’t bad results for Michels, but they’re not good results, either. ‘Believing in his heart’ means nothing; respondents to the Marquette Law School Poll did not check Michels’ beats-per-minute before expressing their gubernatorial preferences. 

About Michels as a Trumpist: he received Trump’s endorsement, ran proudly on it, and is campaigning next month with disgraced money-waster Michael Gableman. He’s all in.
