Snyder approval high; Legislature not so much

Snyder's approval rating among likely voters stands at 55 percent, while 50 percent disapprove of the Legislature's performance, according to a statewide poll released Monday exclusively to The Detroit News and WDIV-TV. The Chicago-based Glengariff Group Inc. survey of 600 likely voters has a margin of error of plus-minus 4 percentage points.
Maybe it would behoove the legislature to work with the governor to pass road funding.
Ken Sikkema, senior policy fellow for Public Sector Consultants of Lansing, said the poll shows Snyder benefits from his involvement in Detroit's problems. His job rating among a small sample of Detroiters was split at 47.5 percent approval compared with 47.5 percent disapproval six months after the city emerged from bankruptcy.

"I think the big takeaway for me is the governor's approval rating in the city of Detroit (resulting from) his work on behalf of the city — getting them out of bankruptcy and, of late, his effort to solve the problems of the Detroit schools, both financially and academically," Sikkema said.

"To be even in the city of Detroit as a Republican governor, I'm not even sure Gov. Milliken could have done that," said Czuba, referring to former Gov. William Milliken, a Republican who was somewhat popular in Detroit in the 1970s. "The residents of Detroit are acknowledging all of the efforts he's put into the city."

People love McDonald's too, so I guess I'm missing your point.

I'm surprised the disapproval ratings of the legislature aren't higher.

Snyder's "leadership" helped produce the abortion known as prop 1. Ya know, the ballot proposal denied by an 80 to 20 margin. Snyder has been nearly useless with regard to the road funding issue.

What happened to all the matching funds we were supposed to receive in connection with the DRIC?
