Last week a Delphi Analytica poll projecting entertainer Robert Ritchie, known as Kid Rock, as leading Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D) attracted significant media attention, but the results did not appear credible. Now, the Trafalgar Group, which was the only survey research firm to correctly project Donald Trump winning both Pennsylvania and Michigan, as well as forecasting Republican Karen Handel over Democrat Jon Ossoff in the recently completed Georgia special election, finds Ritchie pulling into a dead heat with Sen. Stabenow.
According to the Trafalgar numbers (7/25-27; 1,078 MI likely voter respondents from more than 50,000 attempted contacts), Stabenow would lead Ritchie only 43-41%. When those professing to be “leaning” to one candidate or the other are added to the tally, Ritchie actually pulls ahead, 49-46%.
