The Race in Michigan

From Rasmussen Reports:


Mike Huckabee’s surging campaign has created a three-way toss-up in Michigan’s Republican Primary. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds Huckabee earning 21% of the vote. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, the son of a former Michigan Governor, attracts 20% support while former New York City Mayor is the top choice for 19% of Likely Republican Primary Voters.

Trailing the Michigan frontrunners are Fred Thompson at 9%, John McCain at 8% and Ron Paul at 7%. Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter split 2% while 15% are not sure how they will vote. Michigan’s primary is scheduled for January 15, twelve days after the Iowa caucuses and a week after the New Hampshire Primary. Results from those earlier contests may have a significant impact on the Michigan results.


In Michigan, 37% of Likely Republican Primary Voters name the economy as the top voting issue. Twenty percent (20%) say immigration is the top priority while 17% say that the War on Terror is most important. Among those who name the economy as their highest priority, there is little differentiation between the leading candidates—21% prefer Giuliani, 20% favor Romney, and 15% support Huckabee.

if they are mostly concerned with the economy then they should vote for Romney.

Huckabee will be an awful president in all aspects, with the exception of being a "Christian leader"

Anyone concerned about the economy should be more concerned about Huckabee.

if they are concerned for the economy then Paul is the man. Small government, lower taxes. Ron Paul is a winner all around
