Sharon from Holt has already decided who she's voting for this November.

"I just think maybe we need a change in the situation at the Capitol," she says.

She'll be casting her vote for Republican businessman Rick Snyder, and she's in a growing group of people who will do the same.

Our exclusive News 10 Voice of the Voter poll, conducted by our polling partners EPIC-MRA, shows 53 percent of those polled will vote for Snyder. Twenty-nine percent plan to vote for Democrat Virg Bernero. Those numbers haven't changed much since last month, where Snyder had 51 percent and Bernero still had 29.

"I thought Virg might have moved the needle and tightened things up a little," says EPIC-MRA pollster Bernie Porn, but points out the survey was taken just as Bernero's ads were coming out.

When it comes to the attorney general's race, Republican Bill Schuette is up 39 percent to David Leyton's 25 percent. And Republican secretary of state candidate Ruth Johnson leads democrat Jocelyn Benson 31 to 25 percent.

It's not much of a surprise that in each of the three races, the republican candidate is ahead for now. But it's the undecided voter that could change the outcomes of some of these elections.

"Mr. Undecided is leading the field right now. People don't know who these candidates are," Porn says.

And those candidates just have a few more weeks to turn it all around.
