Michigan Politics For Democrats
Better Than Expected, Triumphs Without, Necessarily, Victories
In September, after a summer in Lakeside Michigan, I posted a piece about how political matters across the state looked as the campaigns ramped up. Fraught. This Substack has added 200 subscribers since then, mostly free and a few whose paid subscriptions goes to the Barth Syndrome Foundation and CIVIC, the Center for Civilians in Conflict to support their work
The day after the election, and from a virtual distance, I checked in with my sources on the ground and available results in the data and updated the original piece. That post is now up where the first one was on the site. Do share if so inclined.
Same great top graphic BTW, if I say so myself. And the outcome, certainly in Michigan, proved the adage about underpromise and overdeliver rather than the other way around.
As for the nation: The fates and futures of Donald Trump, vexed in so many ways and Joseph Robinette Houdini, a symbol of older generational grit, are still in play.
Back next week, with a piece to be called something like “The End of Excuses for Israel’s Politics.”
