EPIC-MRA May statewide poll results


In a statewide poll conducted this month, Michigan voters were asked about the direction the state is heading, politician job approval and their stance on Roe v. Wade.

Lansing-based EPIC-MRA recently conducted a statewide poll surveying 600 registered Michigan voters who are likely to vote in November. The first question asked: Is the state heading in the right direction or is it on the wrong track?

49% say wrong track. 31% right track with 20% undecided or refused to answer.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer's job approval rating is slightly underwater receiving 52% negative and 47% favorable ratings.

To that end, if the November general election were held today, 46% of those surveyed would vote for a Republican and 45% would vote for the Democratic incumbent.

The margin for error is plus/minus 4 points.

When asked, "If the U.S. Supreme Court decides to overturn the Roe versus Wade decision that made abortion legal, would you agree or disagree with that decision?"

Nearly 2/3rds disagreed - 63% compared with 26% who agree.

Of the 600 voters surveyed, 42% consider themselves Democrat, 42% Republican and 12% independent. 70% of those sampled were reached by cell phone.
