LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – When Michiganders were polled and asked what’s important to them, there was a new number one issue.
Almost one in five people said their number one concern was ‘addressing abortion laws.’
A new poll conducted by the research firm Epic MRA surveyed Michiganders on several political issues, among those was abortion rights.
When asked if they would describe themselves as “pro-choice” or “pro-life” 58% of those surveyed said they were pro-choice while 33% said they were pro-life.
Those numbers and their 25% differential have been relatively consistent over the years, but when asked how they planned to vote on a ballot proposal in November that would establish abortion as a right in Michigan, the margin between the two sides got even bigger: 67% of voters said they planned to vote yes. Just 24% said they’d vote no.
That’s a 43-point difference.
The political demographics of the poll revealed that 37% of the poll’s respondents consider themselves conservative, 28% are moderate, 22% are liberal and 13% filled in that they were undecided.
