Like many of you, I have been reading the polling data — and I am confused . . . in part because the pollsters are no longer able to gather the data requisite for a representative sample (thanks to the abandonment of land lines for cell phones), in part because nearly all of the so-called “independent” pollsters are partisan manipulators. So, I will have to wait for the results on Tuesday night.
I will be watching Michigan, as you should. It is a purple state. Trump won it in 2016. Biden was awarded it in 2020. The Democrats’ gruesome threesome is up for re-election: our governor, our attorney general, and our secretary of state. All three are female. All three regard abortion as a sacrament and care very little about anything else. They represent better than any other candidates in the country a certain propensity within the Democratic Party. There is also a proposition on the ballot to make abortion a constitutional right for all individuals (including your fourteen-year-old daughter, if you have one). It would also legitimate a sex-change operation for one of your children without your permission. Bodily autonomy — that’s the ticket.
