Earlier I posted this in response to a poll that said Rick Snyder would lose his kingdom if an election were held today:
This is what happens when you try to push “financial martial law” on your state.
It looks like Michigan may be getting restless about restoring collective bargaining rights, too:
Snyder’s also earned the ire of the voters because of the perception that he’s targeting collective bargaining rights. 59% of folks in Michigan think that public employees should have the right to collective bargaining while only 32% are opposed, and 49% of voters even favor a state constitutional amendment to guarantee collective bargaining rights while 37% are opposed to such a measure. … [N]onunion households support it by a 53/39 margin as well so the voters Snyder is antagonizing on this issue go beyond who you might expect.
As Think Progress correctly points out, it’s not hard to amend the state constitution in Michigan, something that could be done to protect the unions. Even a king would have a tough time getting past that.
