Tudor Dixon has caught Gretchen Whitmer in the last poll out of Michigan and now the pro0life advocate is tied with the radical pro-abortion extremist.

A new Insider Advantage poll shows Tudor Dixon tied with Gretchen Whitmer 45-45. Dixon leads 51-29 among independents.

As the polling firm reported this morning: “In the gubernatorial race, 44.8 percent of respondents said they would vote for Republican nominee Tudor Dixon versus 44.6 percent of voters who said they would vote for Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer if the election were held today. Two percent said they would vote for Mary Buzuma, the Libertarian, and 2.4 percent said they would pull the lever for Kevin Hogan, the Green Party candidate. Another 8 percent said they would prefer another candidate, and 5.4 percent were undecided.”

Dixon did better among younger voters (42.3 percent to 40.5 percent) and Gen X voters (47 percent to 45.3 percent), while Whitmer did best among seniors (48.2 percent to 44.7 percent). More whites (49 percent to 42.3 percent) and other/Hispanic (53.4 percent to 22.2 percent) said they would vote for Dixon. African Americans, on the other hand, overwhelmingly preferred Whitmer (74 percent to 12.5 percent).

More male voters said they would vote for Dixon (52 percent to 37.2 percent), while more women preferred Whitmer 51.1 percent to 38.7 percent.)

Additionally, the poll shows Dixon winning the Independent vote by a significant margin (50.7 percent to 29.4 percent).

“The race is tied primarily due to the fact that voters who describe themselves as independents are breaking by a twenty-point margin in favor of Tudor Dixon,” said Insider Advantage analyst Matt Towery.

Earlier this year, Whitmer confirmed she is pro-abortion, not pro-choice. Whitmer recently signed an executive order promoting abortion but on Wednesday she vetoed $21.4 million in funding for pregnancy centers that help women find abortion alternatives and adoption programs.

The veto includes a program to provide housing for pregnant women in need.

Whitmer signed the state budget into law but used her line item veto power to nix funding for pregnancy centers because she falsely claims they lie to women just because they don’t kill babies in abortions.

Earlier, Whitmer signed a second pro-abortion executive order to promote the killing of unborn babies in abortions in her state. Her order is similar to those issued by other pro-abortion Democrat governors in Colorado, Pennsylvania, Maine, North Carolina, Nevada, Rhode Island and Washington state since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24.

Whitmer’s order states that she will refuse to cooperate with other states by extraditing abortionists and abortion workers who abort unborn babies in violation of other states’ pro-life laws. The governor said she will protect women who have abortions from prosecution, too. However, pro-life laws do not punish women, and pro-life leaders have made it very clear that they oppose such punishments.

Genevieve Marnon, legislative director of Right to Life of Michigan, said the governor is setting a dangerous precedent by refusing to help with criminal prosecutions.

“The idea that she is telling law enforcement agents not to cooperate with the law enforcement seeking criminals from other states is dangerous,” Marnon told the local news. “It’s a dangerous precedent.”

Whitmer is aggressively pro-abortion. In May, she signed another executive order demanding that state agencies find new ways to promote abortions in anticipation that the U.S. Supreme Court would overturn Roe.

She also filed a lawsuit challenging the state’s pre-Roe abortion ban, which was supposed to go back into effect in June. However, a state judge with ties to Planned Parenthood blocked it. If enforced, the law could save nearly 30,000 unborn babies from abortion every year.

Since Roe in 1973, more than 63 million unborn babies and hundreds of mothers have died in supposedly “safe,” legal abortions in the U.S. The infamous ruling forced states to legalize abortions for any reason up to viability and allowed abortions for any reason up to birth.

The survey of 550 Michigan likely voters was conducted on October 30, and has a margin of error of 4.2 percent.
