Independents, women and Wayne County voters helped boost Democrat Barack Obama to a 7-point lead over Republican John McCain in the presidential race in Michigan, according to a Detroit Free Press-Local 4 Michigan Poll conducted this week. Obama's 46% to 39% statewide advantage is especially aided by a 39-point bulge among voters in Wayne County, including Detroit. Elsewhere in metro Detroit and outstate, Sens. McCain and Obama are virtually tied, according to the poll of 600 likely voters. Twelve percent are undecided and 3% support third-party candidates. Obama has significantly more support among voters younger than 35 and an 11-point lead among women statewide. Among men, the two candidates are virtually tied. Several other recent polls had shown the race tightening in Michigan, which is among a half dozen or so battleground states expected to decide the presidential race. The state has 17 electoral votes.

Choose Sarah Palin, please
I don’t think he would win MI if he picked Steve Yzerman as his running mate. MI just might be another “lost cause” kind of state, a la NY and CA.
This is McCain Crap again! Maccaca is a liberal who never answers a single question about his posts!
Romney will deliver Michigan for McCain. Of course with the help our Lord and our prayers.
Thank you Heavenly Father in Jesus name!!!!!!!!
I can't back this up. It's just an impression I get from talking to many liberals.
I don't think McCain is going to carry Michigan...but I would not take this poll too seriously.
He is fumbling around for reasons John McCain isn't going to win. Do I smell a troll?
Exactly, in our minds the most obvious choice stands between Romney and Pawlenty.
wrong. This poll was conducted by that renowed Iowa pollster(can’t recall her name) who nailed Iowa caucuses and MI primaries.
I’m afraid that Mccain will go with the coventional VP candidate which will sure doom his opportunity in Nov.
Choose Sarah Palin, please...
And not just because he’s Canadian :)
This was actually done by an independent pollster. She had the most accurate polls in the primaries, and is ranked #1 on 538.com. She uses a different model than other pollsters that predicts increased dem turnout, and sadly she was correct in most cases.
Hopefully the McCain campaign will write off MI, and as a result, write of Mittens as VP and pick someone who can actually help.
We need FA, NC, VA, OH.
Since Jun 16, 2008
Yep. And they are getting tiresome.
Sounds very suspicious to me.
Not sure about maccaca status. But I like his choice for VP, however she might be better on the ticket in 2012.
The more northern you go, the more left-leaning the independents are. That is to say that new england independents are really democrats, and that counts for some midwestern states like MN, WI, and MI.
I really don’t pay much attention to polls, but this particular pollster is usually spot on.
well,anybody that would vote for obama is a communist or stupid,and this so-called poll is BS,like most other pro-lib media garbage, anybody with enough gumtion to vote won’t waste it on obama
I’m curious, do you think McCain will gain significant puma (which I’m assuming you are, given your tagline and posting history) votes in the election if, and only if, he picks a female VP?
