New Poll commissioned by local Detroit TV stations shows President Obama with a +5.5 lead over Mitt Romney (47.5 to 42.0) in Michigan. The party ID was very fair at D +6 in this volatile state that has experienced many population shifts over the last decade.  In 2008 the Democrat advantage was D +12 and in 2004 the party ID was D +5. The poll, of 600 likely voters in a live-operator telephone survey, was conducted Saturday through Monday by Glengariff Group Inc. In this poll, 80 percent of respondents were land-line users, 20 percent were cellphone users. It was commissioned by The Detroit News, WDIV Local 4 and WZZM-TV in Grand Rapids, and has a margin of error is +/- 4 percentage points.  Among the respondents, 39.1 percent said they lean or vote mostly for Democratic candidates, 33 percent said they lean or vote mostly for Republican candidates and 25 percent they were independent voters. (2.8 percent did not know or did not answer.)
