Likely Michigan voters give the Governor bad grades on his job performance and shows him running about even with two potential Democratic challengers not even recognized by most voters.

A new poll shows likely Michigan voters giving Gov. Rick Snyder bad grades on his job performance and shows the Republican running about even with two potential Democratic challengers not even recognized by most voters.
The Detroit Free Press says Lansing-based EPIC-MRA found majorities of those it polled don't recognize the names of ex-U.S. Reps. Bart Stupak of Menominee and Mark Schauer of Battle Creek.
Still, 39 percent say they'd back Schauer and 38 percent Snyder were they facing off in an election now. Snyder gets 39 percent and Stupak 38 percent in a hypothetical matchup.
The April 13-16 phone poll has a 4 percentage point margin of sampling error.
Thirty-eight percent give Snyder positive job ratings and 58 percent negative. Forty-two percent view him favorably and 46 unfavorably.

    All tricky Ricky has done is raise taxes on the littloe guy, and reduce the tax burden for his business cronies. He has done nothing to reduce the bloated size of state "workers" and the questionable number of "supervisors". In too many cases, all a person has to do is keep a chair warm for a few years, and abra-cadabra, they are promoted to supervisor status. Wonderful system. (not) Thank You. Ricardo

    Call at night when working people are available to answer the phone. I bet the polls would be different.
