Michigan’s Senate Race, Still Looking Like a Jump Ball
By Jim Geraghty

Rep. Gary Peters, a House Democrat from Michigan who probably expected an easy road to a Senate victory this November, can breathe a bit easier at a poll out today that has him ahead of Republican Terri Lynn Land.

He’s up by three.

And below 40 percent.

Peters is just below 40 percent, in a polling sample where 38.8 percent identified themselves as Democrat, 31.5 percent as Republican, 24.2 percent as independent. (In 2010, the last midterm election, a statewide exit poll indicated 44 percent of respondents self-identified as Republican,  and 37 percent self-identified as Democrat.)

But hey, that’s the first poll that has had Peters with any lead at all in a while.
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776
