Poll: Obama Up by 6 in Michigan

Mitt Romney is not having a good week in the Midwest. A new poll released on Wednesday showed that President Obama is leading Michigan by six points--with over half of voters saying the auto bailout was a "deciding factor." Obama leads the state 48 percent to 42 percent, according to a Detroit News/WXYZ poll, with a four-point margin of error. Half of respondents said the bailout of GM and Chrysler was a deciding factor--despite a recent ad campaign by Romney claiming Obama wanted to ship Chrysler jobs overseas,  a claim debunked by Chrysler. A Marquette University poll released Wednesday showed that Obama was leading the battleground state of Wisconsin--Paul Ryan’s home state--by eight points.
