Less than half (48 percent) of registered voters in Michigan approve of her. The poll also found that 46 percent of registered voters disapprove of her.
A significant part of the governor’s decline in numbers is from independent voters. The poll found the majority (51 percent) disapproves of the governor. Only 39 percent approved of Whitmer.
This is a significant shift from Whitmer’s poll numbers a year ago. In September of last year, 59 percent of the registered voters approved of her performance, and only 38 percent disapproved. This past May, her disapproval numbers grew in another poll, as only 50 percent approved of the governor and 44 percent disapproved.
Responding to Whitmer’s lousy poll numbers, the Executive Director for Michigan Rising Action, Eric Ventimiglia, said, “Hardworking Michiganders have had enough of Governor Whitmer’s failed policy agenda and her never ending string of controversies.”
