From Public Policy Polling:
Michigan is looking more and more like it won't be in the swing state column this fall. PPP's newest poll there finds Barack Obama leading the entire Republican field by double digits.
The biggest surprise in the numbers might be how badly Obama is beating Mitt Romney- he leads him by 16 points at 54-38. That's a major departure from PPP's previous 3 Michigan President polls, which found Obama ahead by only 4-7 points. Romney's seen a major decline in his personal favorability in the state over the last 6 months from 39/43 to now 29/58. His numbers have dropped across the board but the most striking shift is with independents. He's gone from a +14 spread with them at 48/34 to a -20 one at 32/52.
For the past three years, Republicans have mostly worked to defeat anything and everything the President touched. That's their choice. And it's their strategy... a very cynical strategy. Rather than work together with Democrats for the good of the nation, they set aside things (a lot of them) they used to support purely for a cold, calculated push to regain power so as to reward the top one percent. Seems like working class Americans are starting to get it, especially as the economy continues to improve.
