Dem Poll: Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder Vulnerable
Even though Schauer has low name recognition — just 38 percent of respondents knew of him — the poll speculated that could serve as a boon as voters learn more about the Democrat and drift from the vulnerable first-term GOP governor.
Sixty-eight percent of Republicans approve of Snyder, while more than three-quarters of Democrats view him unfavorably. He has a 40 percent approval rating among independents, according to the poll.
