On the heels of watching his ballot proposal to fund roads get crushed at the polls on Tuesday, Republican Gov. Rick Snyder might have second thoughts about whether he actually wants to make a long-shot bid for the White House. And then there's this: Last week, Detroit Free Press reporter Paul Egan, writing on Snyder's consideration of a presidential run, quoted Public Policy Polling Director Tom Jensen saying:

If I had polled you for favorability with Iowa Republicans, you would come out with the same number he did.

Well, Jensen rolled with the idea in PPP's recent Arizona poll. Turns out, he was right: Egan, amazingly, polled better than Snyder for favorability with Repubilcans in Arizona, netting 6 percent compared to the governor's 5 percent.
