Poll: Governor Snyder, AG Bill Schuette Popular Among Voters

Updated:
LANSING, MI (WLNS) - In an exclusive statewide poll conducted by EPIC-MRA, the indication is people aren't happy with Governor Snyder or Attorney General Bill Schuette, but they would vote for both if an election were held today. According to the poll, more than half of the participants rated President Barack Obama's work in the White House as negative.

Among participants 51 percent do not favor President Barack Obama.

  When asked about the Affordable Care Act, 53 percent of participants oppose the law and 41 percent favor it. Among those opposing the law, 80 percent oppose the Affordable Care Act because it goes too far in changing health insurance, 12 percent say it does not go far enough.

Only 11 percent say the Affordable Care Act should be kept as is, 45 percent say it should be kept, but Congress should work to improve it and 31 percent say it should be repealed and not replaced at all. Participants say they will be less likely to vote for a candidate for Congress or U.S. Senate if they support the Affordable Care Act.

Participants say things in the United States are generally headed in the wrong direction (61 percent), but in Michigan things are looking up (46 percent). That includes Michigan’s economy, where 62 percent of participants say Michigan’s economy has already bottomed out and it starting to improve.

Attorney General Bill Schuette does have a fight on his hands. Democratic candidate for Michigan Attorney General Mark Totten is just five percent behind Schuette in the poll. Among voters, support for Schuette has dropped three percent since a February poll.

Participants reflected on Attorney General Bill Schuette’s work while in office as negative.

Governor Snyder is leading democratic candidate Mark Schauer in the race for Governor. The poll shows 47 percent would vote for Governor Snyder and 38 percent for Mark Schauer.

In the race for U.S. Senate, participants favor democratic Congressman Gary Peters (44 percent) over the republican candidate, Terri Lynn Land (38 percent).

When asked about abortions, 44 percent said they are pro-choice (women have the right to an abortion), 34 percent said they are mostly pro-life (against abortions except to save life of mother and/or rape or incest), and 19 percent said they are strongly pro-life (against all abortions).

Among Michigan voters, 41 percent consider themselves a democrat and 37 percent republicans. More participants consider themselves moderate (38 percent) and conservative (36 percent) than liberal (18 percent).
