A new poll of delegates headed to the Michigan Republican Party convention February 10 and 11 has been released, with delegates being asked who they prefer as the Republican nominee for Governor in 2018.

The poll was conducted by Icaucus and included over 500 delegates.

Attorney General Bill Schuette, Lt. Governor Brian Calley, and former RNC Committeeman Dave Agema, also a former State Representative, lead the pack.

According to MIRS:

"An iCaucus survey of 507 Republican Party activists at least considering going to their county party conventions on Thursday, found that a 26.59 percent plurality of respondents prefer Attorney General Bill SCHUETTE as the party's next gubernatorial nominee.

As far as who they preferred to emerge as Snyder's replacement, Lt. Gov. Brian CALLEYcame out with the second-highest percent at 11.83 percent, former Republican National Committeeman Dave AGEMA third at 8.88 percent.

 Macomb County Public Works Commissioner Candice MILLER 8.28 percent, Sen. Patrick COLBECK 7.89 percent, Secretary of State Ruth JOHNSON 4.54 percent, former House Speaker Jase BOLGER 1.58 percent and Dr. Jim HINES, the only candidate formally in the race, 1.18 percent. 

Of those asked, 3.35 percent said none of the eight listed candidates have their support and 26.04 percent said they are either undecided or uncommitted."
