Hmm, is Michigan really in play and a tie going into election day? According to a brand new poll from Foster McCollum White Baydoun the race is tied at 47%.
Republican Nominee Mitt Romney 46.86%
President Barack Obama 46.24%
Another candidate 4.94%
Foster McCollum White Baydoun (FMW)B, a national public opinion polling and voter analytics consulting firm based in Michigan and representing the combined resources of Foster McCollum White & Associates (Troy Michigan) and Baydoun Consulting (Dearborn Michigan) conducted a telephone-automated polling random survey of Michigan registered and most likely November 2012 General election voters for Fox 2 News Detroit to determine their voting and issue preferences on the Presidential election.
I find it a bit hard to believe the race is tied in Michigan. However, I also find it a bit unimaginable that that a failed president like Obama is even being considered for reelection.
If this turns out to be true and Michigan is tied or say Obama wins the state by single digits, that could be troubling for Obama in OH, PA, MN. In 2008 Obama won Michigan easily by 16%. One has to wonder that with Obama’s auto bailout how come he is not ahead in Michigan by +20?
