It looks like Kid Rock actually has a shot at winning a Michigan Senate seat if he decides to run, according to a new poll.
The 46-year-old Republican, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, currently leads Democratic Senator Deborah Stabenow 49.62%to 46.1%, according to 1,708 likely voters who were surveyed.
The poll was conducted by the Trafalgar Group. Robert Cahaly, a senior strategist with the group , said:
"A general election with Kid Rock and Stabenow could be close and fun to watch. The debates would truly be ‘the greatest show on Earth’ and the uncensored version could be a pay-per-view blockbuster.”
On July 12 the singer confirmed he was running for Senate and tweeted out the link KidRockforSenate.com.
“One thing is for sure though …The democrats are ‘shattin’ in their pantaloons’ right now…and rightfully so! We will be scheduling a press conference in the next 6 weeks or so to address this issue amongst others, and if I decide to throw my hat in the ring for US Senate, believe me… it’s game on mthrf---s.”
