Michigan voters remain disenchanted with governor
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A poll indicates Michigan voters remain disenchanted with the job being done by Gov. Rick Snyder.
In the survey released Monday by Lansing-based EPIC-MRA, 33 percent gave the GOP governor a positive job rating while 62 percent gave him a negative rating and 5 percent were undecided.
The results were virtually unchanged from EPIC-MRA's July poll.
Forty-two percent of those polled last week said they have a favorable opinion of the governor, while the same percentage have an unfavorable opinion.
Thirty-one percent say the state is headed in the right direction, while 54 percent say it's on the wrong track and 15 percent are undecided, similar to July's findings.
The Aug. 13-16 poll of 600 likely voters had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
