The previous MIRS poll was Snyder+5 and the one before was Snyder+12.

Schauer is chipping away more and more of the lead it seems, as he gets more known.

Plus, the Schauer-campaign has reserved 9 Mio. $ in ads for October, so he might peak just at the right time and defeat Snyder after all.

Considering Mitchell is an R pollster, Schauer is in good shape.

I wonder what Snyder's campaign strategy will be after Labor Day, and what they'll hit Schauer with. Snyder very openly pushed for Medicaid expansion, so the ACA is quite literally a non-issue.

Why is it that R Pollster = inaccurate result all the time? Are there any republican polls we can trust?

Less "inaccurate all the time" and more "R pollsters will probably produce results more favorable to the GOP than the reality on the ground".

Because it has a history of inflating R numbers (unlike PPP's nonpartisan polls).

Many R pollsters do, but there are also times where they get it right. I don't think this poll is terribly inaccurate, if at all. Its very similar to the other polls we've seen. I just don't like assuming republicans are doing better than they should in the poll just because the pollster happens to be R.

Nah, it's pretty inaccurate. It's not even because "R POLL EQUALS BAD." It's because in every single race they've had they've skewed to the right, even if the narrative doesn't fit their polls.

Mitchell's final poll results for both the 2012 Presidential and Senate races in Michigan were Republican-friendly.

Presidential...Mitchell: Obama by 5; Actual: Obama by 9
Senate...Mitchell: Stabenow by 14; Actual: Stabenow by 21
