When was the last time a sitting Republican governor of Michigan was subjected to a primary?
Truthfully, I am not sure if it has ever happened. In 2014 it would likely succeed, according to polling by iCaucus that was completed on Friday and finalized this weekend. The scientific polling was done over a week targeting a specific group that will decide who is the GOP flag bearer going forward; active, educated and engaged republican delegates.
As a foreshadowing through early results had revealed, there is little question of where folks are at this point in time, and on the eve of Snyder signing Obamacare capitulation into law in Michigan. The polling shows Rick Snyder in disfavor with delegates, and unwelcome to nearly half. Less than 40% would NOT like to see a primary challenge.
Not surprisingly to this writer, the results are not as clear with Lt Governor Brian Calley, who has results that are within the margin of error. Outside of the polling there is a sense that many conservatives still find the problem to be with the governor himself, and Calley to be more incidental and possibly holding the governor to more conservative positions than he would be otherwise.
This might be the case, and might be seen as an additional reason to oust the governor who requires such 'care'.

And no, I'm not talking about Randy Richardville, though I agree that he needs to go, too. Nope, I'm referring to a different scoundrel here.
Last Sunday, on the Dump Saul Anuzis facebook page, I wrote:
"While all of this various and sundry political talk is very fascinating, let's please keep our primary objective in mind . . . that of dumping Saul Anuzis as Michigan's RNC National Committeeman. We do need to start recruiting a potential challenger, and develop a delegate strategy (using the 2010 pool) to accumulate the votes necessary to dump him."
The conversation threads, both on the page and in the group, were starting to get a tad afield of the original purpose, which is to focus the efforts to replace Saulius Anuzis as Michigan's Republican National Committeeman. Best to stay focused here, as we only have about seven weeks left to work with. Grab a pot of coffee, and let's go below the fold.
