Democratic gubernatorial nominee Gretchen Whitmer, a former state House Minority Leader, has held a commanding lead in the open Governor’s race since the state’s August 7th primary.
Though she maintains a lead well beyond the margin of error in the latest poll completed earlier in the week, a new EPIC MRA survey for television station WOOD in Grand Rapids, Holland, and Kalamazoo (9/21-24; 600 MI likely voters), finds Ms. Whitmer’s advantage trending away from double-digits. Still, she holds an eight-point lead over Attorney General Bill Schuette (R), 45-37%. Though his standing is stronger, Mr. Schuette must make up considerable ground in the waning days of this statewide campaign.
