The Glengariff Group, Inc. conducted a 500-sample, live operator telephone survey of registered Michigan voters likely to vote in the state's Feb. 28 Republican Presidential Primary Election. The survey was conducted on February 11-13 and has a margin of error of +/-4.38% with a 95% level of confidence.  This survey was commissioned by the WDIV Local 4 and the Detroit News.

Michigan's primary election is scheduled for Feb. 28. Ahead of election day, The Glengariff Group, Inc. conducted a 500-sample, live operator telephone survey of registered Michigan voters likely to vote in the state's Feb. 28 Republican Presidential Primary Election. The survey was conducted on February 11-13 and has a margin of error of +/-4.38% with a 95% level of confidence.  This survey was commissioned by the WDIV Local 4 and the Detroit News.

QUESTION:

One idea being discussed is to make Michigan a Right to Work state.  A right to work state means that nobody could be required to join a union to hold a specific job.

Supporters argue that making Michigan a right to work state would allow the state to compete with other states that are right to work states. 

Opponents argue that it is nothing more than a political move to destroy unions and the protections they offer to workers. 

Do you support or oppose an effort to turn Michigan into a Right to Work state?
