Gongwer Poll: Safety Message On Roads Lacks Potency

Governor Rick Snyder and the Yes campaign for Proposal 15-1 have put a huge emphasis on safety concerns about Michigan roads in hopes of swaying voters to the measure, but a Gongwer News Service poll suggests that message is not a surefire winner.

Gongwer commissioned the Lansing polling firm EPIC/MRA to ask those surveyed about how safe they feel while driving or riding on Michigan roads and bridges when thinking about their condition, given the huge emphasis from the Yes side on that topic.
