According to new poll numbers, the prospects of Kid Rock to represent the Grand Old Party in next year’s Michigan U.S. Senate race are looking up.
The survey results from Zogby Analytics showed that Kid Rock has the support of 29 percent of Republicans in Michigan, which is more than all the other potential primary candidates combined.
Kid Rock has not yet announced that he will be running, however, is recent concert has turned into a third veiled campaign event and he is already selling his “Kid Rock for Senate” merchandises.
Jonathan Zogby told the newspaper that he does especially well among Republicans who supported President Donald Trump who stunned the political world by winning the typically Democratic-leaning state. Since President Trump did the unthinkable and flipped Michigan from blue to red, someone like Kid Rock has the potential to harness that populist rage and resonate with blue-collar Democrats and union voter who turned to President Donald Trump. The voters also might be attracted to Kid Rock’s free spirit and “shoot form the whip” personality,’ Zogby said.
The Michigan Representative, Fred Upton is encouraging speculation about whether he’ll enter the fray.
“We’re actively exploring” a Senate run, Upton said.
Upton is speaking this weekend at a statewide Republican gathering. The invitation to the event sports an ‘Upton 2018!’ logo.
A whopping 56 percent of Republicans say they’re undecided about who they want to run against incumbent Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow.
Zogby’s poll has Stabenow leading Kid Rock by 10 percentage points.
Kid Rock gave a Michigan audience a taste of what his Senate campaign may sound like a few weeks ago, mounting a vigorous defense of the national anthem using some choice four-letter words.
‘F*** Colin Kaepernick,’ he said of the NFL player who bends a knee during the Star-Spangled Banner as a protest against racism.
‘And f*** any mother**** who decides to disrespect the national anthem.’
After playing just three songs, Kid Rock re-entered the Grand Rapids venue to ‘Hail to the Chief’ and was introduced to the crowd as ‘the next senator from Michigan.’
