Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney gestures during a campaign stop at Production Products, Thursday, June 7, 2012, in St. Louis, Mo.

The trees may be the right height after all.

An EPIC/MRA poll out today shows Mitt Romney and Barack Obama in a statistical tie in Michigan, with Romney edging the president 46-45 percent.

The numbers are a reversal from April when the same poll had Obama up 47-43 percent.

"EPIC co-founder John Cavanagh said the softening in support for Obama is likely related to a robust TV advertising campaign by pro-Romney PACs which have been critical of his handling of the economy," the Detroit Free Press writes.

Conservative outside groups have spent a combined total of $3.4 million so far in Michigan.

The Obama and Romney campaigns have spent nothing. All that's been spent there on the Democratic side is $10,000 from Priorities USA.
