PPP’s results show Republican Rick Snyder having the largest lead against either Democratic challenger Andy Dillon or Virg Bernero, with Pete Hoekstra the second strongest for the GOP followed by Mike Bouchard, Mike Cox, and Tom George, respectively.
Snyder, Hoekstra, Bouchard and Cox are in a “four-way statistical tie in the GOP gubernatorial primary”, according to PPP, and “this is the GOP’s race to lose,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “That said, Rick Snyder is looking the strongest, despite still being less known than Pete Hoekstra and Mike Cox.”
PPP surveyed 890 Michigan voters from May 25th to 27th. The margin of error for the survey is +/-3.3%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.
