Exclusive poll shows where voters stand on three key issues

Posted: Updated:
MICHIGAN (WJRT) -

(09/16/12) - We're getting a closer look at where Michigan voters stand on three key issues. Each one will appear on the November ballot.

The poll results were released Sunday morning, from our polling partner EPIC MRA.

First up, Proposal 1. It deals with Public Act 4 of 2011. That's the law that allows for Emergency Managers, such as Flint's former Emergency Manager Mike Brown.

Pollsters asked if voters want to keep the law, or discontinue it.

Right now, 42 percent say they would vote yes to continue it. Meantime, 46 percent would vote no, while 12 percent are undecided or refused to answer.

Voters were also asked about a ballot issue involving collective bargaining. Proposal 2 would amend the state constitution to allow public and private employees to organize, and bargain collectively through labor unions.

If the election were today, 48 percent of likely voters would support the proposal. Another 43 percent would vote no. The remaining 9 percent are undecided or refused to answer.

Proposal 6 would also amend the state's constitution. It would require certain voter approval for construction of international bridges or tunnel.

Of those polled 47 percent say they would support the constitutional amendment. Another 44 percent say they would oppose it. The remaining 9 percent are undecided or refused to answer.

The poll sampled 600 voters between Sept. 8-11.
