Over 60 percent of Michigan residents would like Republican Gov. Rick Snyder to cancel a prison food services contract with Aramark, according to a poll released Wednesday

The state has remained adamant that problems with Aramark can be resolve.

If you're looking for a fun read, take a dive into the poll results, which were generated by Public Policy Polling. There's some interesting inquiries, such as, if residents would support Detroit hosting the 2028 Olympics (nearly 60 percent approved the idea).
