Michiganders still aren’t thrilled with their governor or the state of the state.

That’s according to a new poll released today by WLNS-TV and media partners across Michigan.

Only 37% of the “active and likely voters” in the poll say they have a favorable view of Rick Snyder. More than half (52%) say they have an unfavorable view of the governor. Those numbers are slightly better than the 35-55 he scored just three weeks ago.

The number for Snyder’s job rating are even worse. Only a third (34%) of those polled say he’s doing a “pretty good” or “excellent” job, while almost two-thirds (64%) say give him a negative rating. Again, those numbers are similar  (32-66) to the scores from the previous poll.

They’re evenly split on where the state is heading: 43% say Michigan is on the right track, while 42% say it’s on the wrong track. More than 1 in 7 (15%) were either undecided or refused to say.

The poll, conducted by the Lansing firm EPIC MRA, includes the opinions of 600 people. The questions went out between October 22nd and 24th and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4%.
