Marketing Resource Group recently conducted a statewide poll of 600 active voters regarding the plan to replace a portion of Line 5 that crosses the Straits of Mackinac with a new underground tunnel. The results of the MRG poll shows Michigan voters agree with the Michigan Chamber’s support for a public/private partnership to replace Line 5 with a state-of-the-art underground tunnel.
55.3% of voters strongly support/somewhat support replacing Line 5 with an underground tunnel. Only 17.9% of voters strongly oppose/somewhat oppose the plan.
When asked should the Governor work with the State Legislature to fix legislation and allow the project to continue, 86.7% of voters said yes; only 4.5% of voters said no.
Michigan is the Great Lakes State. The best way to protect the Great Lakes, maintain vital energy infrastructure, and ensure safe energy delivery for Michigan working families and job providers in northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula is to replace Line 5 with a state-of-the-art underground tunnel.
Take a look at this video illustrating the project:
