The last time Michigan voted for a Republican in a Presidential election was 24 years ago. But the latest poll shows Mitt Romney leading Barrack Obama in a state which the President won by 17 points. Here’s the key data:
The poll, released this morning to the Free Press and four TV stations, shows Romney leading Obama 46%-45%, a reversal from the last EPIC poll in April which showed Obama ahead 47%-43%.
Obama’s personal and job approval numbers also have slipped, with 46% of Michiganders saying they have a favorable opinion of the president, and 41% approving of the job he’s doing.
