Whitmer’s approval rating has fallen, poll finds
Photo: Office of the GovernorA survey by Lansing-based Glengariff Group shows Michigan voters are split in their approval of Governor Whitmer’s performance in office, an approval that has fallen over time. The survey, conducted from Aug. 31-Sept. 3, asked 600 Michigan registered voters questions about Whitmer’s job performance and other questions related to elections. Last September, 59 percent of voters approved of Whitmer’s performance and 38 percent disapproved. Thirty-nine percent of independent voters approved of Whitmer’s performance, compared to 51 percent who didn’t. Some analysts said Whitmer’s falling approval with independents hurts her those most, saying that Michigan elections are decided by independent voters.arabamericannews.com
