Skip to comments.#MISen Poll: Land (R) up 8 points over Peters (D)
Posted on 01/13/2014 6:18:09 AM PST by The Old Hoosier
With pundits focused on higher-profile Senate races in the South and West, a new Conservative Intel/Harper Poll shows that Republicans have a very serious pickup opportunity in the Midwest.
The early poll of 1,004 likely Michigan voters, conducted January 7th and 8th by Harper Polling, shows Republican former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land (at right) leading Democratic U.S. Rep. Gary Peters (below), 44 to 36 percent.

Just don’t let her (or conservatives in the state) relax. We all know how good the Dems are at manufacturing/stealing votes. Ms. Land needs to be multiple-double-digits ahead in polls so she succeeds on election day.
She’s a pro. She’s won statewide elections, has GOPe backing and is tea party friendly. (Tea partiers elected her to the RNC)
Michigan is in GOP hands and we have an Attorney general and secretary of state who take vote fraud seriously and have squashed every attempt in the last couple of years. Its the primary reason Detroit has their first white (D) mayor in 50 years. They denied him ballot access so he ran as a write in. When he won the primary they tried to strip him of his votes but the state made them count them. He won the general election by a wide margin.
This is good news. Peters got elected to the House twice for my district, supported Obozocare and is otherwise a typical goose-stepping Obama follower. I wrote him a scathing letter a couple years back which of course he pitched, but it felt good just to write it.
“Michigan is in GOP hands and we have an Attorney general and secretary of state who take vote fraud seriously and have squashed every attempt in the last couple of years.”
GOP elected office holders with BALLS? What’s in the water over there in MI?
The AG and SOS were both targets of fraud in 2008.
Is Land a true conservative? If so, I may donate to her.
Looks like they didn’t take sh*t and prevailed!
She comes from the establishment but is very tea party friendly. She’s not a firebrand but has integrity.
The day after the 2012 election, Obama’s illegal DREAMers showed up at Ruth Johnson’s SOS office demanding driver’s licenses.
She stood there and told them to take it up with Obama because he’s the one who put them in legal limbo and it wasn’t her job to fix it and she wasn’t going to give them driver’s licenses till they had some kind of legal status.
From what I understand the Michigan GOPe is out to purge the Tea Party national committeeman in that state and what is Terri Land’s position on that and Congressman Justin Amash, one of the ten members of the House who opposed Boehner’s tax and spend leadership of the House?
95 percent of the GOP officials we elect are GOPe and she has held at least two elected offices, one in RINO President Gerald Ford’s home turf (Kent County) before MI Secretary of State.
Which side is she on???????
She plays both sides of the street like a typical politician??????
God Bless Ruth Johnson!
(not shouting at you, CC):
CAN THE REST OF THE BALLESS GOP OPERATE LIKE RUTH JOHNSON???
HOLY MOLY! That’s insane!
If Land has that kind of lead, what will the polling reveal in states like NC and LA. Ladies and gentlemen, this year may be a WAVE!
We have a very real shot of winning this seat. Land is no Hoekstra.
Stood with us on the tough votes that happened in the fall and winter (not that she was voting, but every potential senate candidate was questioned on if they supported Cruz. She did)
Sounds great to me!
Amash will not lose his seat. I’ve no doubt about that from a pure pundit perspective (I’m not his biggest fan). He’s a good fundraiser and knows how to keep the public on his side.
Can you give us some links on her record and positions? If you do I think we’d all appreciate that.
(The RTW passage and implementation was fantastic! Keep up the good work.)
As a former Secretary of state she doesn’t have much of a record to go on. I do know that she was elected to the RNC by a coalition of tea partiers, GOP conservatives, and libertarians. She’s been outspoken for a full repeal of Obamacare and has voiced her strong support of Ted Cruz in standing up to the establishment. I believe she’s already gotten an endorsement from Larry Arn at Hillsdale college. She also appears to have a very good reputation among FReepers who have met her.
Plus the GOP doesn’t seem to be able to find anyone to run against her. Dave Camp turned them down.
Her twitter feed
And campaign page.
Yes it was, that was a touchdown.....Unfortunately on the very next play, Snyder blew the game by deciding to tax retiree pensions......
If things were left up to Snyder things would never get done in Michigan.
When it comes to Snyder, I’m suffering from voters remorse......won’t happen again
Apart from the usual Demwit ballot box fraud, it won’t be as close as 8 pts. It wouldn’t be surprising to learn that the pro-abortion crap won’t be on the ballot in an effort to avoid pushing up the western Michigan voter turnout.
I don't know of any statewide election where the 'Rat fraud has been so massive as to account 8 percentage points, up until now.
But unless the GOP wakes up and takes definitive steps to curb the fraud and other types of election cheating, the sky is the limit for the cheaters. One possible anti-fraud factor in Michigan that other states don't have is a GOP Secretary of State.
