Replacing Snyder is preferred.
An iCaucus commissioned poll of Republican delegates is revealing the rift between the progressive left governor and the base of the Republican party in Michigan. Respondents have to this point said Rick needs to go, and well beyond the margin of error.
Should Governor Rick Snyder face a primary challenger in 2014?
Preliminary and unofficial results currently show a 46.79% Replace Snyder preference to a 37.93% Keep Snyder Preference, with a 15.29% unsure percentage. Margin of error currently +/-3.87% with 650 respondents with 95% confidence.
The polling also ranks a number of possible contenders in head to head ratings. The names of will be revealed on Saturday, currently showing one possibility polling stronger differentially than the generic count against the governor, and others within the margin of error, and others losing to him.
The need to replace Brian Calley is not quite as clear. 38.84 % support replacing the LT Governor, while 35.32% do not, and a heavy 25.84% remain unsure. This falls within the margin of error, and cannot be seen as a mandate.
Watch for weekend updates.
