Levin appears to have sizable lead on Lipton in 9th district race

WASHINGTON Andy Levin, who is running to replace his dad, U.S. Rep. Sandy Levin, D-Royal Oak, appears to have a strong lead heading into next week's Democratic primary, according to a new automated poll of voters in the district.

EPIC-MRA of Lansing did the poll for the Free Press, surveying 730 likely and active voters in Michigan 9th congressional district who said they plan to vote in the Aug. 7 Democratic primary or already have done so by absentee ballot. The poll was done last Wednesday and Thursday and has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.

Levin, of Bloomfield Township, who held roles in former Gov. Jennifer Granholm's administration and has a background as a union organizer, had the support of 49 percent of those surveyed compared to 26 percent for his chief rival, former state Rep. Ellen Lipton of Huntington Woods. Attorney Martin Brook was third with 3 percent support.

There was still a large number of undecided voters, with 22 percent saying they were unsure or hadn't made up their minds. When undecided respondents were prompted a second time to make a choice, however, Levin's support went to 55 percent, compared to 31 percent for Lipton and 4 percent for Brook. Ten percent remained undecided.
