Obama +8 in Michigan per PPP
A new Public Policy Polling survey in Michigan, conducted on behalf of Health Care for America Now, finds Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney 53-45. Although there has been a lot of talk recently about Romney having the chance to pull off an upset in the state, these numbers indicate that possibility is quite a long shot
Key findings from the survey include:
-An outright majority of Michigan voters approve of Obama’s performance as President with 52% giving him good marks to 46% who disapprove. Romney is not a popular figure in his native state with only 46% of voters rating him favorably to 49% with an unfavorable opinion.
-Obama is leading thanks to wide advantages with women (60/38), African Americans (86/8), and voters under 65 (55/42). Romney is ahead with men (53/44), whites (50/48), and seniors (53/45), but he’d need much wider margins with those groups to have any hope of winning Michigan.
-Obama has wide advantages over Romney in terms of who voters trust more to stand up for the middle class (55/42) and protect Medicare (52/44). Romney’s inability to convince regular people that he would be an advocate for them makes it very difficult for him to compete in a state like Michigan.

And to get him there PPP had to................
Poll the following way............
I know more women vote than men but is it really 10 percentage points?
Democrats are 10 percentage points more than Republicans? I don't think so.
But since this fits the narritive they want to believe they take it at face value and declare that the election is OVER.

2. Yup! 8 point spread, only 3 percent undecided
So, Romney is done in MI, even if he somehow got the 3 percent to all break in his direction. Doesn't look like he will find any EV redemption in his "home state" despite the remarkably favorable tree heights.
Of course if anyone pointed that out they would be declared to be a RIGHT WING TROLL spouting REPUBLICAN TALKING POINTS and banned.
