Posted on 11/20/2013 4:12:07 PM PST by Clintonfatigued
A new poll shows Democratic U.S. Rep Gary Peters and Republican Terri Lynn Land with the same amount of support in a potential matchup for a seat representing Michigan in the U.S. Senate.
According to the results released Thursday, 39 percent of likely voters polled said they would support Peters and 39 percent said they would back Land if they were matched up in Michigan's 2014 U.S. Senate general election. Twenty-two percent said they were undecided.
The poll was commissioned and released by Lambert, Edwards & Associates. It was conducted by Denno Research.
Candidates will be competing to replace long-term incumbent U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, who is retiring.
Both Land, R-Byron Center, and Peters, D-Bloomfield Township, received 81 percent of his or her partys vote, according to the poll. But 41 percent of independent voters were undecided.
This is the first Senate poll to be released since Land announced she was running for U.S. Senate.

This is a good sign, I thought that Peters would be leading. Obamacare is hurting the ‘Rat Party across the board.
Do you know what’s so ironic? If Democrats had accepted Republican offers during the shutdown to delay Obamacare, they wouldn’t be in this position.
Peters is definitely squirming and the election is still a year away.
If she runs a solid campaign to keep level with Peters, Snyder will haul her over the finish line.
I wouldn’t count too heavily on Snyder, he’s an Obamacare lackey.
Top tickets can occasionally help other candidates in the race of the same party.
She definitely has a shot...The media makes a big deal out of Virginia trending Blue...but Michigan is definitely moving from Blue to purple...
If she pulls it out, that would be two recent statewide races that have gone red...nice trend.
Finally someone notices it.........I have other MAJOR issues with Snyder but I'll let it stand with this one.
I attribute a lot of Michigan’s moves to our current Secretary of state (Ruth Johnson). She takes voting integrity seriously.
That certainly seems true now but ya never know how things would turn out.
GOP wanted a one year delay and before the roll-out disaster Dems were probably worried their lib base voter would turn on them and stay home 2014 if they delayed it a whole another year, and from their perspective if the GOP wants it then it must be bad, right?? HAHA
Now it might happen anyway.
Look how Obama delaying enforcement of employer mandate affected polls on it.
Dems were at least smart enough to delay the roll-out till now rather than 2012 where it would have sent Obama back to Chicago,
Snyder has grandious plans for himself. I expect him to play with the idea of running for President. He’d best do it in 16 cause with the cost kicking in a year later to his stupid medicaid expansion he won’t carry his home state.
I would say this disaster for progressives has played out teaching Americans how destructive Federal takeovers are, beyond our wildest dreams.
Their screw ups are so bad we got Freepers here claiming Dems actually planned it this way. Not kidding.
The closest analogy is how IRaq and Afghanistan has turned American’s into non-interventionists, when just 10 years ago the Dixie Chicks were feeling the heat.
Nah, never happen. He's not that politically savvy.......
Besides, he's already violated the 1st Commandment of conservatism.......thou shall not raise taxes.
She was an excellent Secretary of State for Michigan, reforming the office to make it more user friendly, and taking it out of the morass the Democrat Austin put it in for so many years. He really made a mess of it.
Thanks cripplecreek, I’ve liked Land since she served as SoS; in addition, she’s from Byron Center, which used to be a lot more amusing than it is now, WOW has it built up out there.
I’m hoping that Ruth Johnson has similar plans in the future.
Criminals often get careless.
(thanks for the ping. 'creek)
Land is a 2 time statewide winner. I had this pegged as a tossup from the jump.
