I don't get this at all.
Latest poll shows that 2/3 of Michiganers support ending tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. So, why the hell is Snyder leading by such a wide margin in other polls? It's the sheeple voting against their own best interests again. Sheesh!

1. Yep. People don't know the truth.
That, and Snyder's been on the air since the Super Bowl. He's been able to make such a positive image for himself.

2. May depend on who the poll contacted. Seniors are more likely to respond to a poll
and to vote against the tax breaks to the traitor companies.

3. Snyder has marketed himself well
He has escaped a lot of criticism and only recently had negative television ads airing against him. As people get exposed to his negatives, the polls should change. Not to say he won't win but it will be much closer than the polls currently indicate.

4. Not that I would ever think of voting for Snyder, but...

I'd rather have him as governor than Cox; and you know DeVoss money and Teatard supporters would have backed Kwame's best friend Mikey big time. On the other hand, someone suggested to me last week that Cox would have been an easier target for Virg.
