39 percent of Michigan's local government officials say state policy is generally going in the right direction.


That's according to the University of Michigan's latest annual public policy survey.

The survey's project manager, Doctor Debra Horner, says the results tended to split down party lines.

"During the Snyder years, Republicans tended to think that we were more likely on the right track, and Democrats tended to think we were in the wrong direction, and that has flipped since the Whitmer administration has come into place," Horner says.

Horner says of those surveyed this year, around 26 percent of Republicans said things were going in the right direction, compared to 39 percent of independents, and 72 percent of Democrats.
