President Barack Obama (D)

Approve  44 %
Disapprove  45 %

Governor Jennifer Granholm (D)

Approve  27 %
Disapprove  72 %
Not Sure  1 %

Analysis:

“The Dog” & Conservative Democrat often saying Arnold in CA will drag down the Republicans. Well, I could make the same Argument for Michigan.

BTW, you see it RIGHT.
This is no JOKE.
Granholm’s Numbers are really that bad.
She is the second most unpopular Governor in the Nation, after Schwarzenegger in California.
YET, her State House Speaker Dillon manages to be only behind 7 Points against the Republican Frontrunner.
This is interesting.
We’ll see how this Race develops.

Merlin Quickie on Michigan Governor's race……

Hello Dog!

This is probably a little bit disappointing for the White House. Politico’s Jessica Taylor reports that Michigan Businesswoman Denise Ilitch (D-MI) who was heavily courted by the WH Political Apparatus WON’T be running for Michigan Governor.

With her Exit the Democratic Primary likely will come down between Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero (who entered on Monday) and MI House Speaker Andy Dillon who has an Exploratory Committee up.

Note: Rasmussen has a Michigan Governor Poll coming out at 5pm ET.
