"I wanted to vote for the candidate who I thought had the best chance of beating President Obama," said James McCann.
"I'm making sure that there's a nominee going up against Obama that has a potential to win," added Greg Miller, "I'm looking for a winner who can take on Obama in November."
While electability is important, the economy is the top issue on the minds of voters in this suburban Detroit town.
"Economy, jobs, health care," said Bobbi Polk, when asked to list the issues that mattered most to her vote.
Paul Tosch said "the economy, and what needs to be done to turn it around" was most important to him.
"The economy. I think that getting back to some form of capitalism makes a lot of sense," added Jay Ferron.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney grew up in Bloomfield Hills, and most of the voters CNN spoke with said they were backing him.
"The economy, that's most important to me, but the candidate that I voted for also has the best experience to be able to turn around the economy, and that's Mitt Romney. So for me it's a win, win," added McCann.
