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.
On his site a statement reads:
“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.”
