Chief James Craig Leads Gretchen Whitmer By 6 Points



A Tuesday poll revealed that former Detroit Police Chief and Michigan gubernatorial candidate James Craig holds a six point lead over Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for the upcoming 2022 election.

The Trafalgar Group’s poll showed that Craig holds 50.2% of favorability among potential Michigan general election voters, while Whitmer stands at 44.4%. A smaller percentage of voters, 5.2%, were undecided.

Over half of the voters surveyed, 53.45%, were affiliated with the Democratic Party, 35% with the Republican Party and the other 11% as Independent, according to the poll. An overwhelming majority, 81.6%, were white and over one-third fell between the ages of 45-64.

Approximately a quarter of participants were 65 years or older, 14.2% 25-32 years, 13.8% ranging from 35-44 years and only 7.6% ranging from 18-24 years of age. The poll surveyed 1,097 respondents between Sept. 13-15 with a 2.96% margin of error and 1.46% response rate.

The Trafalgar Group surveyed the participants through live calls, integrated voice responses, text messages, emails and two other public digital methods not shared publicly, according to their site.

Craig, a Republican, announced his gubernatorial run on a July 21 segment of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” vowing to oppose the lockdown policies Whitmer imposed on the state and that he would defend “small businesses who are suffering through the pandemic.” The former police chief added that he “protected and served” the city of Detroit for 44 years.

Craig launched his campaign during a Sept. 14 speech on Belle Isle, before being immediately disrupted by protesters with chants that the former police chief is “full of hate,” The Detroit News reported. Craig called the demonstrators “paid protesters” and said Michigan State Police and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) should have prevented the demonstrators from interrupting the rally.
