Is Michigan and the Country Headed in the Right Direction?
It's not surprising, but a new poll shows that more than half of voters in Michigan believe the country is heading in the wrong direction. The survey also found, though, that residents here are feeling better about the future in this state.
The EPIC-MRA survey questioned 600 registered voters and found that while the majority are concerned about where President Obama is taking the country, an equal number feel Governor Rick Snyder is growing in popularity.
As far as state leadership goes, Snyder came out at the most successful from half of those surveyed. 17% favored likely Democratic gubernatorial challenger Mark Schauer.
Second on the favorability scale? Former Secretary of State and current U. S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land. Her rating was 28%. Representative Gary Peters, who is also running for Senate, had a favorability rating of 19% with 13% percent giving him a thumbs down for leadership. Peters has been called out for his vote to pass the Affordable Care Act.
Another Republican--Attorney General Bill Schuette--ranked third in the favorability survey with 22% of the vote.
