Poll: Obama Up by 6 in Michigan

Mitt Romney is not having a good week in the Midwest. A new poll released on Wednesday showed that President Obama is leading Michigan by six points—with over half of voters saying the auto bailout was a “deciding factor.” Obama leads the state 48 percent to 42 percent, according to a Detroit News/WXYZ poll, with a four-point margin of error. Also, a recent ad campaign by Romney asserting that Obama wanted to ship Chrysler jobs overseas was debunked by Chrysler. A Marquette University poll released Wednesday showed that Obama was leading the battleground state of Wisconsin—Paul Ryan’s home state—by eight points.
