President Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney by 8 points in Michigan, according to a new poll from CNN released Wednesday.
The poll shows Obama earning the support of 52 percent of likely Michigan voters, while Romney trails with 44 percent. Obama's advantage is built upon a 5-point lead among men and an 11-point lead among women.
Although the presidential race looked competitive there at times in the summer, Michigan has clearly tipped in Obama's favor over the last month. The PollTracker Average of Michigan currently shows Obama holding a 6.9-point lead over Romney, who has been trending downward since the end of August.
