Also, 45 percent were undecided.

Among Republicans, US Congressmen Mike Rogers and Justin Amash, along with Ronna Romney McDaniel (Mitt Romney’s niece) are in a virtual three-way dead heat, with 21 percent, 19 percent and 18 percent respectively.

The poll was conducted by East Lansing-based Mitchell Research. The Democratic poll has a margin of error of plus or minus five percentage points.

The Republican poll’s margin of error was plus or minus 4.7 percent.
