Poll Finds Dead Heat in Gubernatorial Race, Peters Leads Land in Senate Race

By FOX 47 News. CREATED Aug 7, 2014

Governor Rick Snyder and Mark Schauer are starting their general election campaign in a dead heat according to a poll released Wednesday.

Marketing Resource Group has the Governor leading by three-tenths of a point among likely voters, 44.6% to 44.3%. 11% of voters still haven't made up their minds. The same poll had the Governor up 8 points in March.

The poll also found a big turnaround in the race for Michigan's open U.S. Senate seats. Republican Terri Lynn Land led Democrat Gary Peters by 2 points in March. Peters is up almost 7 now, 46.7% to 40% with 13.3% of voters undecided.

Both polls surveyed 600 likely voters and have a margin of error or +/- 4%.
