MI-Gov: New Epic-MRA Poll Has Gretchen Whitmer (D) Beating Bill Schuette (R) 45-37

Some good news today out Michigan courtesy of EPIC-MRA’s latest poll:

Democrat Gretchen Whitmer has an eight-point lead over Schuette, according to the poll from EPIC-MRA of Lansing.

Other recently published polls have shown Whitmer, the former Senate minority leader from East Lansing, with a double-digit lead over Schuette, of Midland, who has been state attorney general since 2011.

The poll commissioned by the Free Press and its outstate media partners shows Whitmer with 45 percent support, compared with 37 percent for Schuette. Another 11 percent were either undecided or refused to answer, while 2 percent said they support Libertarian Bill Gelineau and 5 percent said they support another unspecified candidate.

The poll also has good news for down-ballot Democrats:

  • In the state attorney general's race, Democrat Dana Nessel leads Republican Tom Leonard 38 percent to 32 percent, with 19 percent undecided or refusing to say, 5% supporting Libertarian Lisa Lane Gioia, and 6% supporting an unspecified other candidate.
  • In the secretary of state race, Democrat Jocelyn Benson leads Republican Mary Treder Lang 40 percent to 31 percent, with 19 percent undecided or refusing to say, 3 percent supporting Libertarian Gregory Scott Stemple, and 7 percent supporting an unspecified other candidate.
  • In the U.S. Senate race, incumbent Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow leads Republican John James 56 percent to 33 percent, with 6 percent undecided or refusing to say and 5 percent supporting another candidate.
