Poll shows Warren's Mayor Fouts is hemorrhaging support ahead of election

Warren Mayor Jim Fouts (R) has been so popular that he won his past two elections with more than 80 percent of the vote – the largest margins of victory in the city’s history.

But a new poll obtained by Metro Times shows Fouts, who has been plagued by scandals and allegations of racism, is shedding support as he vies for a fourth term in the nonpartisan election in November.

The poll conducted this month by the independent Ross Group Research asked more than 300 likely voters whom they would support in a theoretical race between Fouts and former state Sen. Steve Bieda, a popular Democrat who’s considering challenging the embattled mayor.

Of those polled, 37.8 percent said they would vote for Fouts, while 29.6 percent would cast a ballot for Bieda. With a margin of error of 5.6 percent, Bieda is well within striking distance.

1. I would vote for Bieda

Fouts is a disgrace. He looks like the crypt keeper. I believe everything he has been accused of.
