Fans still aren’t certain whether Kid Rock is actually going to run for U.S. Senate.
But the mere possibility has him surging in the polls over a not-so-popular Democrat Debbie Stabenow. In the latest poll, Kid Rock is besting Stabenow 54-46 percent among voters who bothered to name a preferred candidate.
And the 44 percent who didn’t name anyone are probably inclined to vote against a sitting politician given the caustic environment in DC these days.
We’re keeping a close eye on this one. If Dems hope to flip the Senate back to their control next year, they’ll have to knock off the Rock first.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
Kid Rock is currently a huge favorite among Michigan voters, according to a new poll showing the rock star has a massive double digit lead over his would-be Republican primary rivals, as well as incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, leads Sen. Stabenow 48.6 percent to 46.1 percent, according to a survey of 1,078 likely voters released Friday by the Trafalgar Group. The rocker also leads potential Republican candidates in a hypothetical matchup 49.62 percent to 28.10 percent, the survey says.
The Trafalgar Group, coincidently, predicted President Trump’s upset victory in Michigan over Hillary Clinton last November.
Last week, a Delphi Analytica poll showed that the Trump-supporting singer would beat incumbent Michigan Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow in a head-to-head. Some 44 percent of the poll’s respondents declined to pick a candidate. But of those who did specify support for a candidate, Kid Rock led Stabenow 54-46 percent.
While his decision to enter the Michigan U.S. Senate race looms, the 46-year-old rocker appears to be running a shadow Senate campaign. Kid Rock announced plans Wednesday for a new get-out-the-vote initiative, where he will register voters during his concerts, in a lengthy blog post that also included details about his political future.
