Nancy Pelosi got some more bad news.
This time it came from a trusted source.
And this key Joe Biden ally made the one admission that told Nancy Pelosi it was all over.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer served as one of Joe Biden’s key supporters in the crucial swing state of Michigan.
But Whitmer’s heavy-handed – and at times authoritarian – approach to the coronavirus pandemic combined with Joe Biden’s political downturn created a nasty environment for Democrats in the Wolverine State.
So Gretchen Whitmer did the unthinkable.
Whitmer agreed to a budget with Republicans in the state House that bans vaccine passports and mask mandates.
The Detroit Free Press reports:
Michigan public agencies may not require employees or customers be vaccinated against COVID-19 while state and local health officials cannot enact or enforce mask rules for K-12 students under provisions of a budget bill that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and legislative leaders say will be approved.
The nearly $70-billion budget proposal also mandates the state publish detailed justification for any future pandemic orders.
Whitmer’s surrender on mask and vaccine mandates – after imposing some of the harshest COVID restrictions in America – came on the same day Morning Consult released new polling data showing Joe Biden’s job approval slipping with black voters due to Biden’s support for a federal vaccine mandate.
“Biden is still popular with most Black voters, with 71 percent of them approving of his job performance, including 37 percent who do so strongly. But since Sept. 8, the share who disapprove of Biden’s job performance has increased 7 points, to 24 percent, and 14 percent said they ‘strongly disapprove,’ Morning Consult wrote about their poll’s findings.
Morning Consult found that unvaccinated black voters drive the spike in Biden’s disapproval.
“The rise in negative views came almost entirely from unvaccinated Black voters: 38 percent of Black voters who say they have not received their vaccine disapprove of Biden’s job performance, up 11 points since before he announced the mandate, while 56 percent approve, down 6 points over that time frame,” Morning Consult added.
This poll dovetailed with a threat by Black Lives Matter protestors in New York City to stage an uprising against vaccine passports as racist tools of oppression after one restaurant denied service to a group of black patrons that did not have vaccine cards.
“Being a doctor does not protect you from anti-blackness. Having a vaccination card does not protect you from discrimination. The 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits the actions of Carmine’s. It says it is illegal to discriminate against you on the basis of race,” BLM NYC co-founder Chivona Newsome stated.
Democrats cannot win elections without massive margins among black voters.
That’s especially true in Michigan where Democrats depend on massive turnout in Wayne County where Detroit is located.
But voting patterns are not isolated.
If Gretchen Whitmer is worried about alienating black voters in Detroit with vaccine and mask mandates that will extend across the country.
And it could be the blinking red light that tells Nancy Pelosi her time as speaker of the House may soon be up.
