LANSING, MI - President Barack Obama is slightly leading challenger Mitt Romney in the latest poll of likely Michigan voters.
The Marketing Resource Group poll of 600 likely voters, conducted Sept. 10 through Friday and given to MLive, showed the Democratic incumbent and Vice President Joe Biden with 47.5 percent and his Republican rival and running mate Paul Ryan with 42.3 percent. The margin of sampling error was plus or minus 4 percentage points, meaning Obama had a slight edge.
Eight percent were undecided.

obummer’s under 50% with over 10% still undecided. An honest press would report this as very bad news for the incumbent.
I always feel MI is one of those states that looks like its a get for Republicans but in the end always winds up back to Dem by five or six points. Same with PA.
On another note, do you know how the independents split in 2008 in the general election? Did they go for Obama or McCain?
Hmmmmmm - - - - Obama 57.5 %, but Romney says that should be only 47 % .
Looks like Romney has his work cut out for him to win over the 1/2 % .
Correction: 47.5 % not 57.5%. Sorry.
So out of 600 people; 285 said they vote for 0bama, and 254 would for Romney.
Is Romney spending any money in MI?
Secure Our Future Superpac has made a big ad buy in Wisconsin and in Michigan
From other posts, is Romney spending money anywhere?
Good question- I have not seen where Romney was spending money anywhere either.
He has been doing some great counter-punching, anytime Obambi spent money attacking Romney it bounced right back and pit him on the a$$- so I think he stopped, and neither of them are spending much right now
Romney has to force Obama to spend more, especially in states he does not expect to- like NY and CA
I firmly believe NY will NOT vote for him
I dont see one single Obama sign anywhere- and last time they were all over my usual orbits.
Romney is wise to spend his money elsewhere; he will never overcome the 106% turnout that some Detroit precincts will produce for Obama.
Don’t forget they most likely polled from 8-16% more dems than pubs This is actually pretty good news for Romney!!
Political ads can bump other advertising, HAVE to be carried, AND have a price guide to prevent favoring one candidate over another.
I would love to see a Romney add ridiculing MSNBC force to run on MSNBC.
I hope you’re right but I don’t see that happening....he won’t do as well as in 08 but I thing it’s a lock for him!!!
Just 1.5% within margin of area in a solid Obama union state... Uh oh Obozo!
