I've never thought that these polls were very good, but I suppose they can show some general trends that could be more or less accurate. Survey USA has realeased their current installment of Governor ratings, Granhold doesn't look too hot at the outset, but if you look at the breakdown for certain things, she starts to look pretty good. First off, liberals, %14 of the population only give her a %54 approval, you can bet they'll all vote for her when it comes to election time. Detroit, %20 of the state, only gives her %46 approval, and she'll get %85-%90 of the vote there. So while 40/56 doesn't look all that hot, she's really in pretty good shape. The people that don't approve are the ones that don't have jobs (or have shitty ones), and given a choice between Granholm and Dick (I export jobs to China) DeVos, they'll vote for her. I think it will be a landslide.
