Bernero Takes Commanding Lead in New EPIC Poll

I still am wary of polls, and we have a lot of undecideds, but I feel a little better when I read this:

In the Democratic primary election for Governor, if the election were held today, would you vote for Andy Dillon or Virg Bernero?

32% Andy Dillon
40% Verg Bernero
28% Undecided/Refused

How certain are you that you will vote for your preferred candidate?
40% Very certain
39% Somewhat certain
20% Not certain at all
1% Undecided/Refused


It looks like this sampled a lot of pro-choice...

On the abortion issue, do you think of yourself as pro-choice, meaning that you support allowing women to have the right to an abortion, or do you consider yourself pro-life, meaning that you oppose abortions except where it is necessary to save the life of the mother?

64% Pro-choice
26% Pro-life
10% Undecided/Refused

... liberals....

Thinking in political terms, do you think of yourself as a liberal, moderate or conservative?

47% Liberal
31% Moderate
15% Conservative
1% Other
6% Undecided/Refused

...but perhaps that really IS representative of the Democratic base, and this media blather about how we should move to the right is just a bunch of crap.

Generally speaking, do you consider yourself to be a Republican or a Democrat?

82% Democrat
12% Independent
3% Republican
3% Undecided/Refused

Why would 3% of Republicans say they are going to vote in the Democratic primary, when they have such a hot race of their own? Beats me. Takes all kinds I guess.

Go read the WXYZ story for more of the questions asked. Six days to go - and then the real fun begins.
