Lansing, Mich., June 7, 2012 – Lansing-based Epic-MRA today released new statewide poll results that spell trouble for Obama and Democrats in Michigan. The poll demonstrates Mitt Romney’s strength in Michigan, as middle class tax payers compare Obama’s failed record with Mitt Romney’s record of creating jobs.
According to the poll, Romney leads Obama, 46-45 percent respectively. In April, the same poll had Obama leading Romney, 47-43 percent respectively. What’s happened in two months? The national economy continues to suffer under President Obama’s failed leadership.
Matt Frendewey, communications director for the Michigan Republican Party issued the following statement:
“Today’s poll results demonstrates Mitt Romney’s growing strength in Michigan. President Obama’s record of failed leadership and broken promises have hurt middle class families. Obama’s reckless policies are burdening our country with an unsustainable amount of debt. Mitt Romney understands the importance of making tough decisions, sound fiscal policy and common sense governance. Michigan’s hard working middle class families are ready to be the road block in Obama’s attempt for a second term.”
Sadly, as a result of Obama’s failed leadership the national unemployment rate has remained above 8 percent for a record setting 40 months, and in May the national unemployment rate rose to 8.2 percent.
Meanwhile, Obama and his campaign surrogates continue to wage a war on the private sector, resulting in scorn and rebuttals from members of the President’s own party.
Gov. Mitt Romney has a record of job creation. He’s not afraid to make the tough decision necessary to turn the national economy around.
The election is still months away, and polls will fluctuate between now and election day, but today’s poll results clearly demonstrates that as more voters learn of Obama’s failed record and empty rhetoric, they’ll continue to support the Mitt Romney’s strong leadership and record of job creation.
