During Michigan’s state Democratic convention, the state's Attorney General, Dana Nessel (D), compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler during the state’s Democratic convention.

Adds that people should be concerned Republican state leaders are backing Trump, who has in recent weeks joked that he might not leave office if not reelected— Jordyn Hermani (@JordynHermani) August 29, 2020
Newly-released polls show the president overtaking Joe Biden with Michigan voters. This polling was conducted before the Republican National Convention (RNC), which is likely to give the president a bump.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has yet to campaign in Michigan, while President Trump and Vice President Pence have both made stops recently. Hillary Clinton declined to spend time in Michigan in 2016, and President Trump ended up carrying the state by a slim margin.
Democrats appear to be in panic mode as President Trump makes headway in polling and continues to win the “law and order” messaging contest. Nessel is not the first to compare the president to the genocide-commiting dictator, and won’t be the last to do so without scrutiny.
