WASHINGTON (CNN) - Republicans John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee are in a three-way battle for the top spot in Michigan, two new polls out Saturday suggest.

According to a just released Detroit News poll, McCain holds a statistically insignificant 1 point lead over Mitt Romney there, 27 percent to 26 percent. Huckabee is close behind with 19 percent.

Meanwhile, a new American Research Group poll shows McCain with a 7 point lead over Romney, 34 percent to 27 percent. Huckabee stands at 15 percent in that poll.

Both polls carry a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

    After much study, Mitt Romney is the best for illegal immigration along with Fred Thompson. Tancredo gave his endorcement to Mitt as the best on this issue.

    Mitt has a great health plan that will be from $zero to not over $180 per month for those making largest incomes. He has excellent economic strength and record, and this is what we need, not a political Washington thinker/not doer. If Perot had been elected, his economic strength would have been good for our country, he would have got a lot done. I heard on Fox and Cnn that Mitt has "all the right policies on issues". I believe he will get many things accomplished and will be very good for America! Remember, he is a great family man and has 5 sons who are outstanding....a difficult accomplishment these days.
