A Global Strategy Group poll for the Matt Longjohn (D) campaign (8/24-29; 500 MI-6 likely voters) finds 16-term Rep. Fred Upton (R-St. Joseph) ahead in his current re-election race, but his margin is competitive. According to the GSG survey, Rep. Upton’s advantage is 47-41%. The 6th District is relatively marginal, so this type of spread isn’t especially surprising. In this current 6th District configuration (since 2012, inclusive), Rep. Upton has averaged 57.7% of the vote.
