Likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton holds about a 4-point lead over presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump in Michigan, according to a poll unveiled Wednesday.

Mrs. Clinton had a 43 percent to 38.5 percent edge over Mr. Trump, according to the poll of 600 likely voters in the state released to the Detroit News and WDIV-TV.

With Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson added to the mix, Mrs. Clinton received 37 percent support, Mr. Trump was at 33 percent, and Mr. Johnson was at 11.5 percent.

Close to 60 percent said they have an unfavorable opinion of Mr. Trump, compared to 57 percent with an unfavorable view of Mrs. Clinton.

Sen. Bernard Sanders, meanwhile, who scored an upset win over Mrs. Clinton in the Michigan primary in March, led Mr. Trump by 19 points, 52 percent to 33 percent.

Mr. Sanders had a 43 percent/41 percent favorable/unfavorable split.

Michigan has voted for the Democratic presidential nominee in every election since 1992.

But Mr. Trump could try to target working-class voters in states like Michigan, as well as in the battleground states of Ohio and Pennsylvania, where polls have also shown him running competitively against Mrs. Clinton.
