Michigan residents down on economy, Gov. Snyder
Nearly half of Michigan's residents say they're worse off now than they were a year ago, and more than 60 percent believe their economic situation will stay the same or get worse, according to an MLive.com report.
That's according to quarterly State of the State survey conducted by the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research at Michigan State University.
Asked if they believed they were better off now than a year ago, 20.1 percent said yes, down from 28.6 percent in the spring 2011 survey and 30 percent in the winter 2011 survey, according to the report.
Gov. Rick Snyder's favorable rating also has plummeted again, and has fallen consistently since taking office.
Only 19.3 percent of Michigan residents rated Snyder's job performance as "excellent" or "good," down from 31.5 percent in the spring survey and 44.5 percent when he came into office, the survey said.
