Poll: Snyder approval rating sinks to new low



Lansing — Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder’s job approval rating continues to sink and has again reached an all-time low as the embattled Republican works to address the Flint water contamination crisis.

A new statewide poll for The Detroit News and WDIV-TV shows 54 percent of likely Michigan voters disapprove of Snyder’s job performance. The survey of 600 Michigan residents, conducted July 30-Aug. 1 by Glengariff Group Inc., pegged the governor’s approval rating at 39.7 percent.

The numbers are the worst of Snyder’s nearly six-year tenure but consistent with a late May survey, when 52 percent of voters said they did not approve of his job performance. The 2-percentage-point change falls within the poll’s margin of error of plus-or-minus 4 percentage points.

“The reports of my demise are well-overblown,” Snyder told business and political leaders earlier this summer at the Mackinac Policy Conference, attempting to lighten the dour outlook of his remaining two and a half years in office.

2. He is terming out and his political future sank in the Flint River

No doubt his next gig will be "working" as a highly overpaid lobbyist.
