MI Gov: Granholm (D) 49%; scAmway DeVos (R) 42% (Oct 8. Rasmussen)
After being edged out by Republican challenger Dick DeVos in two of our last three election polls, Democratic Governor Jennifer Granholm now leads 49% to 42% (see crosstabs).

(snip)

Forty-two percent (42%) are certain they'll vote for Granholm on Election Day. Only 32% say they're certain to vote for DeVos.

A big reason for the turnabout may be the first televised debate between the two candidates, held October 2. We conducted the present poll a couple days later.

Neither participant escaped criticism. But many observers think DeVos was especially hurt by his performance, which they saw as defensive, full of platitudes, and too vague about how he would reboot the state's economy. In short, not quite the well-packaged candidate of his TV ads.

2. i saw their debate, i hadn't seen DeVos up to that point and when i did
finally see him my first impression was----beady eyes and whoever prepared him for that debate either didn't do a good job or they did they best they could with what they had to work with---DeVos.

4. Smarmy and oily yes but Swarthy---no, i associate swarthy a romance
novel, some bodice ripper with a great looking "Swarthy" lead character, DeVos ain't even close to swarthy, not in the ballpark, not even in the parking lot of the ballpark, oh hell not even on the highway that goes to the ballpark.

5. DeVos is a cleaned up version of the idiot Bush
His so called plan is to tax cut Michigan into prosperity. Yeah, right. Like we didn't see that before under that fat pig Engler.

Yes we want change but not this change.

7. .
For some reason, I always liked her but I don't know why ;)...



Actually, it was because of a really good speech she held a few years ago.
