Did the Obama administration's bailout of the auto industry make Michigan safe for the Democrats? The answer, according to a new poll, may be no. A survey by EPIC-MRA in Michigan now shows Mitt Romney with a tiny lead over President Obama, 46% to 45%. The pollster notes that "the softening in support for Obama is likely related
to a robust TV advertising campaign by pro-Romney PACs which have been
critical of his handling of the economy. Perhaps most troubling for the
Democratic president is a decline in support from independent voters."

Rasmussen reports that American voters are evenly split on the bailout question: "Voters are evenly divided over whether Congress should take
action to help the troubled financial industry or just let Wall
Street work out its problems on its own, according to a new Rasmussen Reports
national telephone survey. Forty-five percent (45%) say Congress should take action, but
44% say Wall Street and the financial industry should take care of their own
problems. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided."
