Voters Overwhelmingly Support The Great Lakes Tunnel Project
6 in 10 registered voters say they support the Great Lakes Tunnel Project. This support is largely bipartisan with 73% of Republicans, 52% of Democrats, and 57% of Independents saying they support the project. Speaking on these findings, Meyers shared that, “Michigan voters really see this as a pragmatic solution to a difficult problem…That really goes across partisan boundaries, geographic boundaries, gender, and race. It’s a solution that Michigander voters really do support.”
Who Did We Survey?
The survey was conducted from September 15th – September 18th, 2020 by TargetPoint Consulting. 800 interviews were conducted using both landlines and cell phones from a statewide sample of registered Michigan voters.
