The poll revealed support for Dixon surged by double digits since picking up the endorsement of former President Donald Trump on Friday night.

When Trump announced his endorsement of Dixon, his team issued a press release and called Dixon “a Conservative Warrior” who will “stand up to the Radical Left as they try to indoctrinate our children and is ready to take on one of the worst governors in the nation, Gretchen Whitmer.”

The poll commissioned with The Trafalgar Group showed Dixon’s support since Friday had exploded from 28% to 41% and gave her a commanding lead going into Tuesday’s primary.

Game-changers occurred for Dixon as the summer unraveled and after an unprecedented number of candidates were dropped from the primary election ballot due to invalid and insufficient signatures. Meanwhile, Dixon’s campaign picked up steam as she obtained numerous high-profile endorsements. These included Michigan Right to Life-PAC, the DeVos family, and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce. In addition, her endorsements boast support from the Associated Builders and Contractors of Michigan and the Police Officers Association of Michigan.

Dixon entered the race in May 2021 after working in the steel industry and as a broadcaster. She is a resident of Norton Shores, a wife, and mother to four daughters.
