Some Michigan Democrats hope to sway Republican primary
Some Democrats hope they can play a decisive role in Michigan Republican presidential primary.
Robo-calls and e-mail blasts to Democrats are encouraging them to vote for Rick Santorum to help him beat Michigan native son Mitt Romney. Other party activists say Democrats should vote for Ron Paul.
David Doyle is a political consultant and former Michigan Republican chairman. He said it is possible for voters who are not Republicans to swing the primary results.
“Well, as close as this primary appears to be, it may be decided by one or two points. Very few Democrats and independents could have an impact. The problem is, right now, the Democrats seem to be very divided.”
But Doyle said that impact would be diluted if those voters split their votes among the Republican candidates.
