DETROIT (WKZO) -- A new poll shows that Michigan voters want a strong Detroit and are against the sale of pieces from the Detroit Institute of Arts. A poll conducted by the "Detroit News" and "WDIV-TV," shows roughly 55-percent of the 600 residents surveyed feel confident about Detroit's turnaround. That number surges to nearly 70-percent for those residents polled in the Metro Detroit area.

As for the sale of any of the DIA's pieces, around 55-percent of Michigan voters oppose the idea. About 25-percent of those surveyed say they support a partial sale of the art and 16-percent support auctioning off the entire 60-thousand-piece collection.
