MI - Butler Trailing in GOP Primary

Pastor and former Detroit City Councilman Keith Butler has picked up support in his bid to become the United States Senator from Michigan, but still trails in his party's primary according to a Strategic Vision poll concluded on June 18 (

Rev. Butler finds himself behind Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard by 5 points, however, nearly a quarter of voters are undecided in the Republican primary to be held on August 8. The five point deficit is half of what he faced a month ago in another Strategic Vision survey.

If Rev. Butler is successful in his party's primary he faces a monumental task in knocking of Michigan incumbent Debbie Stabenow, whom he's trailed by an average of 21.6% over the last three months in a variety of polls.
