“Our message of solving problems and leading from the front resonates with Michiganders as I travel across the state,” said Chief James Craig. “The momentum is behind us, and I hear it all the time – Michiganders want real leadership in Lansing to rebuild our economy and bring good-paying jobs back to Michigan.”
Chief Craig’s name recognition and favorable image are stronger than his opponents, with room to grow his support base. His extensive and successful law enforcement background as a police officer and Detroit Chief of Police gives him credibility as the strongest candidate and true political outsider who will beat Gretchen Whitmer, provide strong leadership, and deliver positive change in Michigan.
The poll was conducted among 500 likely Republican primary voters between March 22 – 24, 2022. The sample includes a mix of a landline phone, mobile phone, and text-to-web interviews with a +/- 4.4% margin of error.
