A new Emerson College Poll (3/7-10; 743 MI registered voters) likely provided first-term Michigan Sen. Gary Peters (D) with a surprise. According to their new survey, John James, a Republican manufacturing company owner and retired Army Ranger, has already pulled to within one point of Sen. Peters, 44-43%. Emerson also tested the presidential campaign and found all Democrats leading President Trump in Michigan.
The result could be accurate. Mr. James came within a 52-46% margin in his loss to Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D) back in 2018, which was much closer than projected particularly in a year that proved highly successful for Michigan Democrats. Early signs suggest that this could become a top tier Senate race.
