A recent poll shows that the race for the Republican nomination for governor is tightening up, and that House Speaker Andy Dillon has the early lead on the Democratic side.
Marketing Resource Group did a poll of Michigan voters between March 10 and March 15.
The results show that Attorney General Mike Cox, Congressman Pete Hoekstra and business executive Rick Snyder are in a virtual dead heat. Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard is in 4th, and State Senator Tom George is barely registering.
On the Democratic side, now that the field is apparently set, most voters haven’t made up their mind. However, House Speaker Andy Dillon has the early lead with Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero and State Rep. Alma Wheeler Smith still in single digits.
Wheeler Smith 6%
