GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - There will be six statewide ballot proposals on November 6, but as election day approaches support for most of the proposals appears to be slipping.
The Glengariff Group surveyed Michigan voters this week for WZZM 13, WDIV-TV, and the Detroit News.
Proposal One would ask voters whether Michigan should keep the emergency manager law. About 36% of people surveyed support the law, compared to 53% last month.
Proposal Two would guarantee collective bargaining rights. 50% support it, down from 55% last month.
A proposed mandate that 25% of the state's energy come from renewable sources by 2025 has the support of 49% of people polled, down from 57% in August.
The proposal to give training regulation and union rights to home health care workers went from 62% in August to 56% this month.
The proposal to require two thirds majorities in the state House and Senate to raise taxes went from 68% last month.. to 51%.
The only proposal to gain support would require voters to approve the construction of any new bridges or tunnels. It went from 43% last month to 50% in September.
What has changed between the two polls? The official wording of the proposals have been finalized. It may be that voters are just beginning to read and try to understand what's in each of the measures.
