Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder: I’m still politically relevant… I’m still politically relevant… I’m still politically relevant…

 “He knows that he is being … seen as someone who has lost his political capital…and he’s trying really hard to push back on that,” said Ron Fournier, a Detroit native and senior political columnist for the National Journal who presented at the conference.
   “He struck me as someone who was, generally speaking, awfully determined to put up the façade as someone who wasn’t in doubt,” said Fournier, who said he sat down with Snyder for 20 minutes on the island. “(He was) really defensive, leaning really hard with his case and his talking points for the progress that has been made in Flint and Detroit and the successes that he thinks he’s had and where he hopes to take the state.”
   Snyder remains popular among business leaders. He had a 59 percent approval rating in a May survey of Crain’s subscribers conducted by Lansing-based Epic-MRA. More respondents favor Snyder than President Barack Obama or any of the remaining candidates vying to replace him.
   Survey respondents overwhelmingly say they believe Snyder should remain in office, with 78 percent in favor of the governor finishing his term.
   Among all voters, it’s a different story. A new poll of likely statewide voters found 52 percent disapprove of the job Snyder is doing, The Detroit News reported.
