When Mitt Romney was extensively courting Michigan’s Republican voters during the primary election there, he told crowds that the trees were the “right height” in the state. He did this again and again.
However, in a major development in the campaign, Public Policy Polling asked the state’s likely voters whether the altitude of their treetops seemed right and only 38% agreed with Mr. Romney.
Twisting the knife in further, Democratic voters were far more likely to agree with the Republican presidential hopeful than GOP ones! 51% of those who described themselves as “very liberal” agreed with him on the rightness of local tree height, while only 27% of “very conservative” respondents felt the same.
To be fair, the vast majority of voters did not have an opinion on the issue and few people specifically felt their trees were the wrong height. For those who did, it’s not immediately clear whether the state’s trees are too tall or too short, but if there are any future developments on this, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
