Cross-Over Voting Could Throw Wrench In Michigan Primary

DETROIT (WWJ) – Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are very close in the polls, with some polls showing Romney with a slight edge in Michigan. Chief political strategist for the Potomac Research Group Greg Valliere takes a look at the races.

He says Michigan is tough to predict because it’s a state that allows party cross-over voting in primaries, and if Democrats vote, that could make a difference.

“It’s a very unusual provision that would allow Democrats in Michigan to vote in the Republican primary and they could make some mischief and they could vote for Santorum to deny a win to Romney,”said Valliere.

Bill Ballenger, publisher of Inside Michigan Politics, says he suspects we’ll see some mischief. But he doesn’t think that’ll be a major factor.

      Not sure if carrying that badge of shame around for 22 months is true but it is worth it to me. I’ll be voting for the Frothmeister on Tuesday.
