Nearly half of Michigan's people say an immediate family member has lost a job in the past two years, a new Detroit Free Press/WXYZ-TV poll shows. Barely one-third of us think the state's battered economy has begun to improve.
A new governor will be elected in November. Most of the current state legislators will be replaced.
