Poll: Gary Peters Leads Michigan Senate Race
A new poll of the race for Michigan’s open Senate seat finds Democratic Rep. Gary Peters leading all possible GOP candidates.
The poll was conducted by the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling.
When matched up against former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land, who became the first GOP candidate to enter the race earlier this week, Peters leads by 5 points, 41 percent to 36 percent.
The Democratic candidate’s leads are bigger against Reps. Mike Rogers and Justin Amash, two of the most-discussed prospects in the race: Peters leads Rogers by 10 points, 42 percent to 32 percent, and Amash by 12 points, 42 percent to 30 percent. The poll also finds Peters with double-digit leads over former RNC committeeman Saul Anuzis, Rep. Dave Camp, state Sen. Roger Kahn, district judge Kimberly Small and cardiologist and former U.S. House candidate Rob Steele.
