Inside Michigan Politics has thousands of readers in Michigan, Washington, D.C. and even abroad. Here’s what a few of our subscribers have to say.


Timothy K. McGuire

“I have been reading Inside Michigan Politics since … well, longer than I might like to admit. I do so because IMP gives me the on-the-ground details about Michigan’s legislative elections I need in my job of serving Michigan’s 83 county governments. IMP is must-read material for me.”

Timothy K. McGuire, Executive Director of Michigan Association of Counties


Matt Marsden

“In my last 12 years of experience dealing with the media in Michigan and national politics, I can say that Susan J. Demas ranks among the best I've dealt with. I respect her commitment to journalistic integrity, her respect for sources, and her dedication to being fair in her news coverage. She never blurs the lines between that hat and the one she wears as an opinion columnist. I believe that Inside Michigan Politics is more credible and straight-forward publication today than ever before.”

Matt Marsden, Co-Founder of the Pontiac-based data firm Revsix, former Senior Adviser to Republican state Senate Majority Leaders Randy Richardville and Mike Bishop, and former Chief of Staff to Republican Congressman Joe Schwarz

“IMP helps shape the political agenda in Michigan. If it makes the pages of IMP, you know it’s important to Michigan politics. That’s why politicos of all stripes look to IMP for guidance. IMP provides its readers with tremendous insights and the ability to pick the winner and losers of races well before the conventional wisdom sets –– something I know this firsthand from my own elections.”
