That’s an increase of 13-percent since a survey of 600 respondents was taken only one month ago. When asked specifically about Michigan’s economy, 40-percent said they think the economy has bottomed out and is starting to improve, 32-percent believe the economy is stagnant, and 25-percent think it could still get worse.Head-to-Head:
