Joe Biden and Gretchen Whitmer

Veteran political pollster Ed Sarpolus, founder of Target-Insyght, gives us his read on Joe Biden's lead over President Trump in Michigan, the Gary Peters-John James Senate race and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's impact on the presidential race in Michigan.

"Yes, she's on the list because this is a swing state, she's a woman, she's been attacked by Donald Trump," Sarpolus says of Whitmer. "But she has nothing really, I would say to offer Joe Biden. If Joe Biden needs Gretchen Whitmer to win Michigan, then Biden's going to lose Michigan because Gretchen Whitmer has the same problem that Hillary Clinton has-- reaching that disgruntled white male vote. She didn't do overly well in the black community."

"Biden has to win Michigan because of Biden. If he needs help, he's going to lose Michigan."
