Michiganders will vote tomorrow in the GOP presidential primary- the 3rd state to do so in the 2008 election.
New polls released over the weekend show John McCain leading Mitt Romney in Michigan by a margin of 27%-24%. Michigan is Romney’s home turf– his father was Governor of the state in the 1960s. The future of his campaign is riding on his success there. New national polls show McCain leading Mike Huckabee 28%-20% (ABC News/Washington Post). A CBS News/New York Times poll shows McCain leading Huckabee 33%-18%.
This presidential race is very close and any of the candidates still have a chance to win. Michigan will be an interesting state to watch, but what happens on February 5th, Super Tuesday, will really set the stage for the 2008 general election.
