If there is a state that appears headed toward the Democrats, it’s Michigan. That’s why two new US House polls from MIRS for Fox 2 Detroit are surprising.
First, in the 8th CD, a race that Democrats are counting among their impending victories, the MIRS research study (Target Insyght; poll dates not released; 500 MI-8 registered voters; automated) finds Rep. Mike Bishop (R-Rochester/Lansing) leading challenger Elissa Slotkin (D), 48-45%.
In the open 11th District (Rep. Dave Trott-R, retiring), the MIRS survey (Target Insyght; poll dates not released; 500 MI-11 registered voters; automated) finds the two contenders, businesswoman Lena Epstein (R) and former Treasury Department official Haley Stevens (D), tied at 48%. This is another seat that most other data projects for the Democratic nominee.
