We're 12 weeks to election day and soon, voters will decide on a new leader of the free world. According to the latest Fox 2 Detroit/Mitchell Poll, Michigan voters look to be leaning towards Hillary Clinton.
The exclusive poll shows the Democratic nominee leading Donald Trump by a 10% margin, with 49% leaning towards Clinton, 39% towards Trump, 9% to Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, and 5% to Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein.
“Trump’s support is fueled by angry voters. We asked voters if they agreed or disagreed with the statement ‘I’m mad as hell and I won’t take it anymore.’” Of the 54% who said they agreed, Trump leads by a 2:1 margin (58%-28%). However, among the 26% who disagreed, Clinton leads by a huge margin (87%-9%). Among the 20% who were not sure if they agreed or not, Clinton led by a more than 2:1 margin (58%-25%),” Steve Mitchell, CEO of Mitchell Research & Communications said.
The race appears to be a two-horse race with Clinton expanding her lead in key demographics.
“Clinton’s lead has widened and the percentage of undecided voters has dropped since our July survey that showed Clinton leading Trump 40%-34%. She has a very strong eighteen percent lead with women (54%-35%) and leads with men as well (45%-41%). Clinton is also doing better with Democrats (88% support) than Trump is doing with Republicans (77%). Trump had been winning with independents but now trails with those voters in a two-way race by seven percent (42%-35%). Since the end of the two conventions, Clinton has solidified her lead in Michigan,” Mitchell concluded.
