Exclusive News Ten Poll

An exclusive News Ten poll shows more changes in support for both Governor Granholm and Dick DeVos after the second debate.

The Epic-MRA statewide poll has Granholm widening her lead over DeVos to almost 10 percent. 51 percent of those surveyed say they'd vote for Granholm if the election were today and 42 percent would vote for DeVos.

The survey also indicates the debates are helping voters make up their minds. Only 5 percent are still undecided, as compared to last week's 12 percent.

Granholm's numbers have jumped 5 percent since the first debate last week. DeVos's support is up 2 percent. These numbers look significantly different than they did at the beginning of the summer. A News Ten exclusive survey in June had DeVos ahead of Granholm 48 percent to 40 percent. Four months later, the ratings are almost exactly opposite.

The survey also shows a major disparity in attitudes towards Michigan's economy. 36 percent of those questioned think the economy will stay the same for the next six months. 34 percent hope it'll improve, and 21 percent feel it will get worse.

Economy seems to be the theme of this election, with both candidates looking to change Michigan's role in the national marketplace.
