Governor Snyder at the Mackinac Policy Conference in 2014

The Detroit Regional Chamber's Mackinac Policy Conference wrapped up this morning. There was a lot of buzz up on Mackinac Island about an EPIC-MRA poll which finds Governor Snyder's disapproval rating is 52%.

In our Friday political roundup, Ken Sikkema and Susan Demas joined us on today's Stateside to talk about Gov. Snyder's criticism of the media and his latest efforts to highlight his particular brand of optimism.

GUESTS Ken Sikkema is Senior Policy Fellow at Public Sector Consultants. Susan Demas is the Editor and Publisher of Inside Michigan Politics. She tweets @sjdemas.
