Folks in Michigan are pretty pessimistic about the state's future according to the results of an exclusive WILX poll.

It shows more than three-quarters believe the state is on the wrong track.

Only 13 percent think we're headed in the right direction.

Seventy percent say the economy has gotten worse in the last year. And only 20 percent think it will get better in the next twelve months.

    LOL….. That’s the democratic way, raise taxes for the people that can’t help themselves…. Guess what, people get tired of paying one of the highest taxes in the country…. I live in Colorado and a house in Michigan would cost me almost 3 times as much as it does here…. BIG Hint…… !!!!

    The demise of Michigan is directly related to the growth of Unions in Michigan... Unions are VERY bad for companies and when the companies have it good, more jobs are available... my 2 cents

    I plan on moving to Illinois within the next few years. I can't afford a move right now. Things are really bad in Michigan. Look how long we've been under Granholm's reign. Nothing is getting better. And I have no idea why she was re-elected!

    I agree with Ralph. The state wants to make up for lost taxes by forcing those of us left here to make up for the lost revenue. There isn't enough to go around!

    I agree with Ralph the last one out turn off the lights. It is coming and will be soon it is just a matter of time before the governor finishes the job of destroying Michigan. I just can not believe that the people of Michigan are so blind to have voted her in again so she can finish destroying Michigan. She don't care she will just go back to Canada and things will be fine for her no sweat off her back.

    I believe the 13 & 20 percent are the people who are benefiting from the bad times the rest of us are having, or they don't know how to face reality. " The last one to leave the state of Michigan, Don't forget to turn out the lites"
