Of those respondents who stated a preference between Stabenow and Rock, fifty-four percent stated they would vote for the rocker while forty-six perfect said they would vote for the current Senator.

The organization polled 668 Michigan residents from July 14 to 18.  The small poll size and Rock’s hard-party image may make him an unlikely candidate in the long run, but these early results and the current president may indicate that the American electorate is warming up to the idea of celebrity politicians.

At least one political was excited by the news. Texas Governor Greg Abbot tweeted the link writing: “IT’S HAPPENING! New poll has Kid Rock leading Debbie Stabenow. THIS will shake up Washington.”
