Calley has Momentum in Michigan Primary for Governor

Marquette, MI – A new Strategic National poll of likely Michigan GOP Primary voters shows Sandy Pensler has taken his first lead in the Republican US Senate Primary, and Lt Governor Brian Calley with momentum in the Republican Primary for Governor.

Republican Primary Voters
Sandy Pensler: 21%
John James: 17%
Undecided: 62%

“Sandy Pensler has taken the lead over John James in the US Senate Primary based on substantial margins in West and Northern Michigan,” said John Yob, CEO of Strategic National. “His ad campaign emphasizing his background as an outsider businessman in manufacturing is resonating with Michiganders. His opposition to sanctuary cities, and support for renegotiating unfair trade deals is catching on with voters hungry for a candidate with the resources to take the fight to Debbie Stabenow.”

The poll also shows Bill Schuette, who was once leading in the polls by a significant margin, now only has a 9-point lead over Brian Calley in the Republican Primary for Governor.

Republican Primary Voters
Bill Schuette: 27%
Brian Calley: 18%
Patrick Colbeck: 7%
Jim Hines: 3%
Undecided: 45%

“The Primary for Governor continues to tighten and this survey was taken prior to Governor Snyder’s public endorsement of Brian Calley,” said Yob. “These numbers are likely to continue to move in Calley’s direction as his name ID catches up with Bill Schuette.”

The Strategic National survey was conducted March 19-20, 2018 and included 400 likely Republican Primary voters and has a 4.9% margin of error.
