New Michigan Poll : 0 47.7%, R 45%
Zero at 47% across the country
Economy, foreign affairs, and understanding voter values. Neither Romney nor Obama received 50% in any one category. The state is a mess.
Wow! It’s gonna be a ground game and the union thugs will muscle their crowd to the polls. RR needs to have a counter strategy.
MI is in play... and O is sitting at the familiar 47%? It doesn’t look good!
He should be having a double-digit lead there!
It does appear a tough nut to crack but tantalizing.
Bad news for the Kenyan. He won that state in 2008 by 16 points.
He’ll be lucky if he wins it at all this time around.
No internals nor crosstabs, though it says Romney is up 6% among men, down 11% among women, and has a "narrow" lead among independents.
If Obama campaign was caught napping, their Detroit turnout machine may not be ready. No big black turnout in Detroit, he loses.
It is still a secret ballet regardless the union pressure.
I move MI from “Strongly Leans Obama” to “Tossup”.
Considering that most undecided voters ultimately vote for the challenger, this poll actually has Romney in the lead in Michigan.
Hired Rick! Now let’s hire Mitt and Paul!!
47.7 to 45 - with 6.3% undecided. Those are ominous numbers for an incumbent, and Romney leads Obama on the “who’s better on economy” question.
I don’t know if Romney will ultimately win Michigan, but if it is this close, I feel really good about the chances of him winning the battlegrounds needed.
It’s certainly true about the frightening union muscle being applied, and yet I’m hearing story after story after story of union members telling their friends that they’re sick and tired of the intimidation, and they’re going into the booth, shutting the curtain, and voting Romney. People standing on street corners with Dem signs, chatting with the other signholders and telling them they’re only there because they’re paid to, or will lose their job if they don’t, and that they don’t support a word of the sign they’re forced to hold. I know it’s only anecdotal, but don’t be surprised if you’re pleasantly surprised next week. Whatever the truth is, we have to work our butts off.
Good! That keeps them out of Wisconsin!!!!
