Michigan

America’s Worst Governors

Consider this post a denouncement, if you will, for the following Governors of American states that have proven time and time again that they don’t belong in office. From corruption to stupidity, these are the American Governors that should be impeached — or, in the very least, not be re-elected or allowed into political office in the future — in no specific order…

Sanders’s win, as said by FiveThirtyEight (who predicted a less than one percent chance for Sanders to win Michigan), is the greatest polling upset in modern political history.
