In 2016, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-Dearborn) was warning everyone who would listen that Donald Trump could win in Michigan. The problem was, not enough people were willing to listen.
“We cannot let our hearts harden. We’ve got to get our country back. We need to bring civility back.” - Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Dearborn).
Dingell tells Stephen Henderson on Detroit Today that she still thinks the polls are still inflating former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead in Michigan. But she says she thinks Biden is more likely to win Michigan compared to Trump.
Listen: Rep. Debbie Dingell weighs in on Tuesday’s election.
“In the last few days as I’ve been out and about my stomach’s been easing a bit,” she says. ”I believe that Joe Biden is up, but I don’t believe he’s up by double digits… We don’t see a lot of accurate polls anymore.”
Dingell says she believes women will play a big role in this election.
“Four years ago Hillary didn’t do a good job of connecting with women and women didn’t understand the power of their vote,” says Dingell.
She’s also calling for civility amid rising political tensions.
“We cannot let our hearts harden. We’ve got to get our country back. We need to bring civility back… I’m as tough as anybody else, but we’ve got to do it respectfully,”
