EXCLUSIVE POLL: Proposal 4 on collective bargaining for in-home care workers too close to call

(WXYZ) - How Michigan voters will weigh in on Proposal 4, a limited collective bargaining agreement for in-home care workers, is too close to call! 

Our exclusive WXYZ/Detroit Free Press Poll indicates that 44 percent of 600 likely State voters will reject Proposal 4, while 42 percent will say YES to amend the Michigan constitution to require the Michigan Quality Home Care Council to preserve labor agreements that will soon expire. 

Eleven percent don't know how they vote on this issue, and 3 percent refuse to cast their ballot on Proposal 4.

These latest polling numbers were conducted by EPIC MRA of Lansing. 

Bernie Porn, co-founder of the firm says, "Proposal 4 is the least partisan issue of the six proposals on the Michigan ballot probably because Republicans, Democrats, and Independents need quality in-home care.  However, Porn points out that 66 percent of Democrats favor Proposal 4 compared to 68 percent of Republicans who oppose it."

Our survey commissioned by our statewide media partners was conducted October 26-29 and has a margin of error of + 4.0%.

POLL RESULTS:

Proposal 4 would amend the Michigan constitution to establish the Michigan Quality Home Care Council and preserve a collective bargaining agreement for in-home care workers that is otherwise set to expire. If the election were held today, would you vote YES to approve of Proposal 4, would you vote NO to oppose the proposal, or, would you not vote at all on Proposal 4?
