LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Michigan voters say issues related to COVID-19 are the most important to them heading into the November election.
That’s according to a new poll from EPIC-MRA, which spoke to 600 likely voters in our state. The poll has a margin of error of 4%.
Participants were given a list of 10 major challenges in our nation and asked which one concerned them the most.
Almost a quarter of voters, 23%, said the most concerning issue was “reopening the economy, in-person schools, and restoring jobs lost to COVID-19.”
Nearly as many respondents, 21%, said “protecting public health by reducing COVID-19 cases and deaths” was their biggest concern.
“Controlling violence and crime in the cities” was a distant third, at 12%, while “addressing systemic racism and discrimination” got 8%.
Climate change, health care costs, taxes, and national security all received 5% or less.
