In a poll just released by the Trafalgar Group, Lena Epstein is out in front of the other announced Michigan U.S. Senate Republican candidates. The poll of Republican Primary voters has Lena Epstein: 9.4%, John James: 7.1%, Bob Young: 5.8%.
Epstein released the following statement:
“The voters of Michigan are looking for a political outsider – a business leader and job creator. I am taking the fight directly to Debbie Stabenow.
As a future United States Senator serving on behalf of all Michigan residents, I will repeal Obamacare, defend President Trump’s America First policies, and support proposals that will rebuild the American middle class.
Social media erupted on Sunday when a poll showed musician Robert Ritchie, aka Kid Rock, up by four points over incumbent Democratic Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow. Delphi Analytics, whose website just launched this month, released the findings:
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. The relatively large, 44%, number of undecided respondents may be due to the early stages of the campaign.
