Michigan voters spread blame around on Auto Crisis

A new PPP poll finds that Michigan voters think there's plenty of blame to go around when it comes to the current crisis with the auto industry.

92% of respondents think that the management of the companies have at least some responsbility for the situation, 81% think that the UAW does, and 72% think the same of the government.

When asked which group they think is singularly most responsible, 43% said management with the UAW in second at 25%.

The UAW is not in particularly good standing with the state's voters. Just 42% have an overall positive view of the organization, and only 18% say they would be more likely to vote for a candidate endorsed by the UAW with 39% saying they would be less likely to do so. Although it remains in pretty good standing with Democratic voters it is very unpopular with Republicans and also gets poor marks from independent voters, who have a 35/50 unfavorable view of it.

Shocking. Apparently voters are better informed than DC pundits.
