MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A new poll shows Governor Rick Snyder’s job approval rating has sunk 28 points since just before Election Day, as Michigan has been rocked by contentious issues like Right to Work.
According to the poll by North Carolina-based Public Policy Polling, Snyder’s approval rating is now 38 percent and his negatives are 56 percent. In a November 3, poll, Snyder’s approval rating was 47 percent positive and 37 percent negative.
The poll also shows, 41 percent of voters support the Right to Work legislation, while 51 percent are opposed to it.
Tom Jensen, director of Public Policy Polling, says Snyder is now one of the most unpopular Governors in the country.
The Democratic-leaning polling firm was the most accurate Michigan pollster during the 2012 election, according to an analysis by the political newsletter MIRS.
It says Snyder, whose term ends in 2014, trails all potential Democratic challengers including 2010 opponent Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer, U.S. Representative Gary Peters and former Congressman Mark Schauer.
In the November 3 poll, Snyder lead a generic Democrat 47 percent to 41 percent and the firm said the Governor looked generally safe for 2014.
