EPIC/MRI is a Democratic leaning poll of course. I'd put Granholm's lead at about 3.

Still, it's never bad news to be ahead.

I still have faith in DeVos to pull it out.

You believe that Chris Bell is going to win the TX governor race but you think Dick Devos is going to win the MI governor race, both are unlikely at this point.

I'm not sure how much a polsters leaning effect the results.  If you ask who you are voting for, the person answers with who they are voting for.  still there seems to be a difference doesn't there.

Epic/MRA had DeVos ahead back when only he was doing advertising.  This made sense at the time.

I have in the past said the DeVos will be another Feiger.  I am still leaning that way to a point.  DeVos will likely lose, by how much will be determined on how well the Granholm campaign can define who he really is.



It affects the results because they only poll a few hundred people, and good pollsters will pick a good unbiased sample, whereas bad ones will usually end up with a biased sample.

Plus, some firms can word their questions in such a way as to get the results they want.

EPIC/MRI isn't a horrible firm, but historically they have overpolled Democrats. I believe in 2002 in their final poll they had Granholm winning by about 10 points, and she ended up winning by 4. Hence why I figure she is up by about 3 or so.

A) All of my predictions have bias in them, I admit that. Especially my Texas predictions.

B) If you are going off my map, I have tried changing it numerous times but it isn't showign up on the forum. I have no clue why.

C) I don't see what is so unlikely about a Dick DeVos victory. Granholm is far from a great governor, and DeVos isn't a bad candidate.

I thought I was doing that, but I will try again.

other than "Amway Man", DeVos has nothing going against him.  Granholm's done enough bad for Michigan-time to vote her out.  I'm not 100% I want DeVos to win, but I want the socialist out of office.
