Snyder's Popularity Plummets in Michigan

Who needs voters when the media
still has love for me?
Taegan Goddard's Political Wire

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Michigan finds Gov. Rick Snyder (R) is one of the most unpopular governors in the country. Only 38% of voters approve of him, while 56% disapprove. 

Key finding: Snyder has dropped a net 28 points from the weekend before the election, when his approval rate was 47% to 37%.

"There's not much doubt that it's the right to work law and his embrace of other actions by the Republican legislature that are driving this precipitous drop in Snyder's popularity. Only 41% of voters in the state support the right to work legislation, while 51% are opposed to it. If voters got to decide the issue directly only 40% of them say they would vote to keep the law enacted, while 49% would vote to overturn it."
