    Slowly. Surely. Methodically.


    ' Romney is a native of the state, but it looks from this poll as if adding Paul Ryan to the ticket pushed him over the top.

    The poll, produced by Foster McCollum White Baydoun, showed Romney leading Obama in Michigan by 47 to 43 percent, which is just outside the poll’s 2.35 percent margin of error.

    Paul Ryan was said to make Michigan voters more likely to vote for Romney by an 8 percent margin. Ryan’s budget proposals, which are not quite the same as Romney’s campaign proposals but remain a topic of intense interest, were viewed positively by a plurality of 48 percent.

    Eric Foster, president of Foster McCollum White & Associates, said that “Romney has identified a clear game changer if his strategy is to divide the Midwest and blow a bugle in President Obama’s Midwestern Strategy.” It was not clear from his statement if “blow a bugle” is a metaphor commonly employed by Michigan pollsters, or if Foster made it up especially for this occasion.'

    Michigan Boils down to Turn out in the Greater Detroit Area. If it's high there Obama will win, if it's low there and high in the Rest of the State, Romney will win.

    Obama has the Union people firmly in his Pocket, but the Unions really only have Power in Detroit, the rest of us Poor Saps in the 81% of Americans who are not Union, and Frankly didn't really benefit from Obama Rewarding his Union supporters so much.

    Hell in fact I lost out on work because of it, and documented so here when it happened, My city got a Huge Chunk of Stimulus to Build an extremely over Priced Section of a Bypass road around the City, but because of the Rules applying to the Stimulus Money, the City was forced to hire all Union workers from the Detroit area and bring them up here to do the Job, while Local Contractors, and Workers who normally work on our roads got the Shaft.

    P.S. the Job Cost roughly 3 times what Local Companies had suggested they could do it for, Before the City took the Stimulus Money.

    Your stimulus Dollars in Action.
