A new poll released today suggests that Michigan residents aren’t very fond of their governor.
It shows about a third of them have a favorable opinion of Rick Snyder, while more than half of them say they don’t.
Snyder’s favorable rating: 35% (and only 8% were “very favorable”).
His unfavorable rating: 55% (with 32% as “very unfavorable”).
Only 10% were undecided.
And when asked to rate the job he’s doing, Snyder fared even worse: 32% gave him a positive rating, while 2 out 3 people – 66% – gave him a negative one.
The people polled do feel better about Michigan’s economy. Just over half (53%) say it “has bottomed out and is now improving” and they’re evenly split (45% to 44%) over whether Michigan is on the “right track.”
The poll, conducted by the Lansing firm EPIC MRA, includes the opinions of 600 people. The questions went out between October 1st and 3rd and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4%.
