Hoekstra. My God. He is that idiot who was first on the scene to blame Obama for the underwear bomber even before Dick Cheney. I am really kind of surprised, because he doesn't have any personality.

Hoekstra is an idiot for calling out the admin for lapses in security? Yeah, he's a REAL idiot!

I guess the people of MI are fed up with the same old Dem leaders who have destroyed that state. If only California and NY would wake up to it as well. Soon.... soon....

@FarLeft,

I don't know where you live but I've been saying that people here in the midwest don't just dislike the democrats at this point, they despise them deeply and thoroughly. Obama's approval is still in the 60's in the typical liberal states - he is in the mid to low 30's here in the Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky area. I know he's that bad in Arkansas and he is probably in the 20's in the gulf coast states with his failure on the oil spill.

I know its still early, but when the best any democrat can do against any republican is 36%, there isn't much hope for another democrat governor of Michigan for quite a while.

Hey people. Just look at the calendar. This is still a May survey and the flowers of the GOP that bloom in May are always dead by November!

Bullshit. The last Ohio poll had him at 46% approval. Stop trying to spread your misinformed perceptions as fact.

I hear the unemployment rate is going to go down to 9.6.500.000 jobs was created in May,but the Democrats still wont get the credit,because America wants back the party who lost millions of jobs Clinton created in the 90s

I am shocked this poll has Snyder back in the pack and not up over Hoekstra. Snyder was surging so what happened?
As for people hating the Democrats in the midwest . . . why is Lee Fisher leading Rob Portman in Ohio? I'm sure Rasmussen will be out with a poll today showing Portman ahead, however.

No, no, no Melvin. Oilbama created 17 million jobs last month alone. In fact - there is no unemployment. That's just a story made up by Fox News. Oil spill? Fox made it up. Bribery scandal? Selling Senate seats? Selling presidential appointments? Those are all stories just made up by Fox News. And Bush. Bush did it!

You can start crowing when the unempoyment rate falls below the level it was at on the day Obama took office. 5 million people lost their jobs on his watch.

Remember Oilbama's lie that unemployment would stay below 8% if we let him take a trillion dollars out of our pockets?

Let me guess - Oilbama's lies are Bush's fault.

lol, your argument might be taken seriously if based on facts. Michigan is still a deep blue state on National elections, but an equal a political opportunist in its local State elections. Besides, Obama approval 2 months ago was in the 50s, where in May over 90 thousands came out to listen to him talk @ a gradation ceremony.

Its too early to decide how this will ban out, but Hoekstra is a political joke in DC and since he's bellow 50% now, he'll collapse as the campaign starts gearing up.

Detroit loves Obama. The rest of the state hates him.

then its amazing how he got elected with a large majority hoosier_gary. By the way, your race bating is quit pathetic. In your little code name: Detroit = blacks= love Obama....the rest of MI= Whites= hate Obama.

@Huda - everything is about race with Obamazombies, isn't it? You made the racial comments. Look at the electoral map instead of the Obama "all them whiteys are racists" instruction book. You members of the Racialist Democratic Party love your race cards. You are a pitiful bunch of hate-filled racialists.

Hey Melvin,

Job figures are out. 431,000 new jobs - 411,000 of them are temporary census workers. Looks like more proof of a total failure of the stimulus package.

Where is that below 8% unemployment Obama promised 16 months ago?
