Shame you didnt poll on support for a constitutional amendment repealing Snyders Emergency Financial Manager bill, or support for repealing the ban on progressive taxation.

For Michigan voters to be at 38% for recalling the Governor, that it self is understated by this poll. First, Michigan has NEVER RECALLED a elected official, ever. For 38% of the voting public considering the possibly in their mind, says something is not quite right in the water surrounding Michigan.Next worrying (or it should be) number for Snyder is the Independents....seriously. Your research state that 32% Independents approve of Snyders Governing style. This is not the union hotbed of Southeastern Michigan which is majority Democratic. Instead this is other areas...known as purple country like the Central and Upper Regions of the state.As soon as these voters that might not YET be ready to recall Snyder, are informed with the reasons why this man is dangerous to our state....expect for the 38% number for the recall, will jump between 10 to 12 points....and that is this close to a majority.Governor Snyder would be wise to listen to Michigan voters and not corporate donors, at this point. If not, he could easily see himself out of office come this time, next year.Learn about the recall process in Michigan here:http://www.firericksnyder.org

Please explain to me how on Earth you found that 49% voted for Snyder and 43% voted for Bernero? Snyder won the election 58%-40%. And 15% of Bernero voters think Snyder is too liberal?!

I recall Engler having the same issue and he was re-elected multiple times because he got results. Rick will do the same. He was elected to do what he is doing. The same people who dont like it are the same people who dont like the idea of cutting the federal entitlements despite all the facts proving that will be absolutely necessary. When Michigan is BOOMING in a few years he will be re-elected by an even larger margin than he was elected by this time, and that will be in great part because he has been so honest and has done what he said he would do and it will work.

So the percentage of Republicans dropped from 37% to 28% in a couple of months?Well Duh, What you expect from DailyKOS/PPP?? Theyre on a roll lately. Anything and anybody Repub is sinking while Dems everywhere are blowing everybody away. Yeah Right!!!It is obvious now that the election is over, they are fudging their samples to get outcomes desirables to their benefactors. They know the next election is 1.5 years away, so they can spin anything they want since they know they will not be called to account via other, more credible & balanced polls. Their polls on Gov Palin are particularly hokey & rigged.Nice jobs guys; Keep up the good work. The KOS kids are in heaven.

Snyder won because, he sold out gateway to the Asians and cashed in his $14m dollar stock options and had more money than Bernero to spend on the campaign - he has only ever scmoozed with the already well to do - rubbing elbows with Detroits affluent at the DAC - he sold out Michigans workforce ust like he sold out gateway - to the highest bidder.

So the percentage of Republicans dropped from 37% to 28% in a couple of months?It was 35% in December. Its not necessarily a raw-number drop--its proportional. With Democrats more fired up than last fall, even if Republican interest stays the same, their % of the electorate drops.

So typical of the fickle midwestern voters...

Snyder MUST be recalled! I will work 24 hours a day, seven days a week beginning June 1st to ensure that he IS recalled. Power to the people!

How could he possibly have that big of an approval percentage,33%. The man doesnt live in the real world like most of us, oh thats right hes a REPUBLICAN! they live in some fantasy world, where they get all the tax breaks, make ALL the money and the rest of us hard working Americans, just work until we die. to quote Snyder directly, from the Times Herald, in Port Huron, The goal here isnt to punish people, he said. But lets gid rid of the impediments weve had for far too long. he wants to get rid of more working people, erase bounderies and employ fewer people at less cost. Who does he think is going to shoulder all the taxes he wants us to pay? because the less people the GREATER our tax burden becomes. The man should be RECALLED, before he does anymore damage. All hail Comrade Snyder :-(

Pretty awful numbers for Snyder, especially given that Bernero was not very popular.

Alright, then please explain how you guys managed to find that Michigans ideological identification is now 28% liberal, as opposed to the levels of slightly less than 20% in previous surveys.1.) We havent shown a reduction in conservatives in MI or really anywhere else. It was 38% in December and 37% now.2.) As Ive said in other comment sections, we recently switched to breaking ideology down by very and somewhat distinctions, whereas we always used to just ask lib/mod/con--3 options. Now there are five, and weve noticed that everywhere a lot of former moderates who didnt want to attach the dirty liberal label to themselves are now at least willing to admit theyre somewhat liberal. Thats brought liberals up and moderates down pretty much everywhere. In some cases, weve also seen some former moderates go somewhat conservative, actually bringing conservatives up a little.3.) Obviously if the proportion of Democrats surges, liberals are going to be more numerous.Pretty simple.

Because Republicans actually outnumbered Democrats in the November election, but now Republicans, at 28%, are even less numerous than independents (31%), and far less than Democrats (41%).Alright, then please explain how you guys managed to find that Michigans ideological identification is now 28% liberal, as opposed to the levels of slightly less than 20% in previous surveys. Ideological ID is, to my understanding, generally more stable than party ID and you show a clear reduction in both the proportions of conservatives and moderates and a clear uptick in the proportion of liberals in the state.

The story of the shift from 2004 to 2006 to 2008 to 2010 to now is all a matter of turnout (and independents shifting in the wind--theyre returning to Democrats side now as well).

Ive got two words to describe people who want to recall Snyder....SORE LOSERS!! I think that John Engler was at the same approval rating in the early part of his first year, and he ended up getting re-elected TWICE! Rick Snyder hasnt even been governor a year, and people already want to recall him because they dont ...agree with him? Ive got news for them....he was ELECTED by the people of Michigan. If you dont believe hes doing a good job, vote him out in the next election! I didnt vote for Granholm, Whitmer, or Obama, but I dont remember anyone screaming for THEM to be recalled.

2 years is too long, Hes had 2 full months and look what he did.-cut higher education by 22%-began to tax retirees pensions-gave corporations 1.8 million in cuts while-raising taxes for Elderly and Working poor.For someone to have campaigned on bringing jobs, it looks like he is, for his Corporate buddies, not the Michigan Middle Class.
