DETROIT (WKZO) -- A new poll shows Michigan voters believe schools and not roads are the top priority.

According to a recent poll conducted by WDIV-TV and the Detroit News, roughly 37-percent of Michigan voters would support a tax increase to improve road maintenance. That's compared to approximately 50-percent of voters who would rather see the funding be used to help the state's public schools.

Forty-five-percent of those polled say they would not support a tax increase for roads because they believe enough money is already budgeted for road maintenance.
