Poll: Debbie Stabenow 52, Kid Rock 34

MRG’s poll only asked about a head-to-head match-up using Kid Rock’s stage name. It showed Ritchie — who would likely be required to use his real name on the ballot if he did run — leading only in conservative west Michigan, where he held a 43%-36% edge over Stabenow, with 15% undecided and 6% saying they wouldn’t vote.

Overall statewide, Stabenow led 52%-34% with 10% undecided and 4% saying they wouldn’t vote. Many other polling firms do not use the “wouldn’t vote” category by itself, typically folding that into the undecided or refused to participate category.
