Michigan: Absentees put Snyder, Schauer race in dead heat


from the Detroit Free Press:



The race for governor has tightened into a virtual dead heat heading into the final days of this election cycle. And the Democrats' strategy to increase turnout by getting people to vote by absentee ballot is a big driver.

With less than a week before the Nov. 4 election, Gov. Rick Snyder has only a two-point, 45%-43%, lead over Democrat Mark Schauer, according to an exclusive 600-person poll of likely voters taken Oct. 26-28 by EPIC-MRA for the Free Press, WXYZ-TV and their media polling partners. Nine percent of respondents said they still are undecided, and 3% percent said they are voting for third-party candidates.

Among those 9% undecided, however, the partisan leanings of 8% are toward Democrats and 1% toward Republicans. If those undecideds are put into the mix, the race is a 46%-46% tie, said Bernie Porn, president of EPIC-MRA.

"The ground game is starting to take effect with absentee voters," Porn said. "We've got ourselves a horse race." ............(more)

1. I heard Snyder use a voice actor for one of his commercials.

The guy sounded two octaves deeper than his normal reedy soprano nasal monotone.

I thought I was imaging things, but I use Teevo.

3. Imagine hearing that wonderful whine...

...then drop it down a couple of octaves. It's still a whine. Relentlessly dull, too.

4. Oh, yuck. I've seen that commercial too many times, LOL. I didn't think

I'd see a worse governor in my lifetime than John Engler, but boy was I wrong. Rick "The Dictator" Snyder is just about the most despicable politician I can think of. There are other, more blatant baggers that I can't stand like Cruz, Paul, Walker, Scott, Brownback, etc., etc., etc., but what makes Snyder so evil and vile is that he's such a freaking LIAR. I so hope we give him the heave-ho next Tuesday.

6. meanwhile it would appear that our governor's race in WI

is moving away from us. I don't know what happened in the last two weeks to make an even race change to +7 Walker.
