Shock Poll: Kid Rock Leading in Michigan Senate Race

Earlier this month, Kid Rock rocked the Michigan political scene with an announcement of his bid for U.S. Senate.

He’s hoping to ride the Trump wave of electoral success to unseat incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow.

First impressions amounted to passing intrigue, but a new poll has folks taking a second look.

Delphi Analytica surveyed 668 Michigan voters to find that nearly a third of them prefer Kid Rock over Sen. Stabenow.

What’s more shocking is that only a quarter of them prefer Stabenow.

The midterm elections are more than a year away, but if this trend holds it could mean that the populist revolution led by President Trump is still rolling strong.

This’ll be one to watch.

Here’s more from American Mirror…

Senator Kid Rock?

That’s a very real possibility, according to a new poll.

Delphi Analytica has released the findings of a survey of 668 Michigan voters, which shows Robert Ritchie leading incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow, 30 percent to 26 percent.

The poll, which was taken between July and July 18, found 44 percent of voters preferred not to answer.

As Delphi Analytica notes, “Of respondents who stated a preference between Debbie Stabenow and Robert Ritchie, 54% stated they would vote for Ritchie while 46% said they would vote for Debbie Stabenow.

“These results could indicate that Ritchie is a popular figure in Michigan, Debbie Stabenow is unpopular, or some combination of concurrent trends.”

Despite not being a formally declared candidate, Kid Rock is upping his criticisms of his rumored opponent.

On Friday, Ritchie tweeted a photo of his dinner, showing a hamburger, ears of corn, a pickle and a bottle of beer.
