You have to admit…the political headlines are getting more unusual in the U.S. with each passing day.
Did anyone really think years ago that Donald Trump would actually become President of the United States? And accomplish that feat by getting the best of Hillary Clinton?
Well, this might be even more remarkable, in a way.
The musician known as Kid Rock, who shot to fame as a rapper and managed to successfully transition that popularity over to the genres of Southern rock and country, is giving serious consideration to running for U.S. Senate in Michigan as a Republican against Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow.
That’s probably strange enough. But it gets better.
Turns out, as a prospective candidate, the Trump-supporting Mr. Rock is currently ahead of Stabenow.
According to the results of a Trafalgar Group survey released Friday, Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, is presently leading Stabenow by a margin of 48.6 percent to 46.1 percent.
The survey also revealed that candidate Rock would likely crush any opposition he might receive from within his own party. According to the numbers, Rock/Ritchie is ahead of any potential Republican candidates by a 49.6 percent to 28.1 percent margin.
These aren’t the only survey numbers showing that Kid Rock would be a strong candidate in the Michigan race. A previous poll by Delphi Analytica indicated that he would beat Stabenow in a head-to-head matchup. Of those respondents who did indicate support for a particular candidate, Kid Rock finished ahead of Stabenow in the Delphi poll by a margin of 54-46 percent.
