The popularity of President Barack Obama and fellow Democrat Gov. Jennifer Granholm appear to be slipping in Michigan.
An EPIC-MRA phone poll Saturday through Monday shows 44 percent of likely voters thought favorably Obama and 49 percent unfavorably. That’s compared with 51 percent favorable and 42 percent unfavorable in its June 12-15 poll.
Thirty-two percent of those in the new poll were favorable toward Granholm and 63 percent unfavorable. That’s compared with 39 percent favorable and 55 percent unfavorable in the earlier poll.
The polls for the Detroit Free Press and TV stations WXYZ, WJRT, WOOD and WILX involved 600 people each time. The results have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
