Voice of the Voter: Bay County

Posted: Updated:
BAY COUNTY (WJRT) -

(10/16/12) - With only 21 days to go, recent poll numbers are showing an even tighter race between President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney.

We are doing a five week series, called Voice of the Voter profiling what's on the minds of voters in Mid-Michigan. This week we stopped in Bay County.

The 2012 Presidential Race is getting close to its final lap with only three weeks left until election day.

"To pick the best candidate is what I'm interested in doing," said Bill Walter of Bay City.

George Mullison is a local attorney and while he says he's already decided who he'll support next month, he would like to see a plan to get the country's economy growing again. "I wish people would look at the policies and the specifics. It's easy to say we're going to create 12 million new jobs, but how will you do that other than just have increase business because of decreased taxes."

While domestic issues are a top priority for Bay County voters, some have taken an interest in America's stance in the world and its foreign policy.

"I think the future of America and how we project ourselves to the other country's of the world, they look for us for leadership and I think we need to improve that," Walter added.

Sharon Sloan and daughter Lisa already have their mind made up. They want a leader who shares their same values.

"We want a  president we can trust, someone who can tell us the truth who doesn't lie to the American people and someone who will support Israel," Sloan said.

"We have a future ahead of us, there's a lot of people looking for that. The world needs to change in a better direction or it may get worse for us,"added Lisa Finlyson.
