Latest Polls: Romney Up in Michigan… And Illinois(?)
Mitt Romney pulled ahead by in Michigan in the latest poll 47.68% to 43.88%.
MY FOX Detroit reported:
Foster McCollum White Baydoun (FMW)B, a national public opinion polling and voter analytics consulting firm based in Michigan and representing the combined resources of Foster McCollum White & Associates (Troy, Michigan) and Baydoun Consulting (Dearborn, Michigan) conducted a telephone-automated polling random survey of Michigan registered and most likely November 2012 general election voters to determine their voting preferences.
In what will be a significant blow to Democratic campaign efforts, native son Mitt Romney has climbed into the lead in Michigan’s Presidential contest. The naming of Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan has delivered a targeted affect on the Michigan and Midwest campaign dynamics. We ballot tested the Presidential candidates and we also tested the following two areas of initial campaign impact and awareness:
Congressman Ryan’s impact on voters’ decision to vote for Mitt Romney.
Congressman Ryan’s controversial 2012 fiscal budget plan and voters support or opposition to the plan.
It is our conclusion that the results to these questions will help initially either validate Ryan’s selection or provide messaging for Democrats that Ryan is not acceptable to the voters. As our data outlines, currently Romney and Ryan are received positively enough to help vault Romney into the lead.
In another poll… President Barack Obama could lose his home state of Illinois in November.
