Poll Finds Palin Popular in Michigan

By on 9.8.08 | 2:00PM

A new PPP poll taken over the weekend shows Barack Obama clinging to a statistically insignificant 1-point lead over John McCain in Michigan.

The poll finds:

The selection of Sarah Palin as the Republican Vice Presidential candidate appears to be a hit with Michigan voters. 45% of respondents say they are more likely to vote for McCain because of his running mate selection, while just 30% say Joe Biden joining the Democratic ticket makes them more likely to vote for Barack Obama.
In the previous PPP poll taken in July, Obama led by 3 points, so this isn't a huge move. But still, it's good news for McCain in a state with 17 electoral votes that went for Kerry and Gore.
