Poll: Michiganders meh on tree height

Are the trees in Michigan the right height? Mitt Romney obviously thinks so, having said so back in February.

In a curious survey question, Public Policy Polling has asked Michigan voters whether they agree with the vertical quality of their trees.

The results? A collective shrug.

While 38 percent said yes when asked, “In Michigan, do you think the trees are the right height, or not?,” and 8 percent said no, 55 percent said they were “not sure.”

For those who really want to get into the weeds (or is it roots?) on this question, the crosstabs revealed that more Obama supporters believed in the perfection of Michigan trees: 44 percent of those who backed Obama in 2008 also backed the height of Michigan trees as compared to 27 percent for McCain supporters.

The poll has some other interesting results: Only 24 percent of voters think of Romney, who was raised in the state, as a Michigander, versus 65 percent who do not. And the polling firm tweeted out another tidbit (not in the poll): “Eminem has a better net favorability in Michigan than Mitt Romney.”
