All three proposals on the November ballot look like they're going to pass, according to a new poll done at Michigan State University.

The State of the State Survey was done by MSU's Institute for Public Policy and Social Research.

It shows "Yes" with a double-digit lead for all three proposals with less than two weeks until Election Day.

Proposal 1 would legalize marijuana. It's a 21-point margin there.

Proposal 2 would create an independent commission to draw new legislative districts every 10 years. This is the closest one with only a 10-point difference.

Proposal 3 allows no-question absentee voting, same-day registration and straight-ticket voting. "Yes" is up almost 50 points here.

The poll shows the races for governor, attorney general and U.S. senator are all tightening up.

Democrat Gretchen Whitmer still leads the race for governor. She's up nine points over Republican nominee Bill Schuette.

The race to replace Schuette as attorney general is within the margin of error.

House Speaker Tom Leonard has a three-point lead over Dana Nessel.

And the poll gives Sen. Debbie Stabenow a seven-point lead over Republican John James.

The margin of error for this poll is 4.9 percent and the poll did not ask responders how likely they are to vote. But the results are similar to a Detroit Free Press poll of likely voters that was released this week.
