So yeah what makes her stand out is that she was in the public spotlight due to being married to the POTUS, the other 100s of thousands of Americans that have similar educational and work experiences to hers would never get even a fraction of a fractions notice if they ran for POTUS because they don't have celebrity status.
Forget about First Lady status. Geezus. Kid Rock vs Michelle Robinson. Are people really this dumb? It's appalling.

To gauge Ritchie’s chances in a hypothetical general election matchup, Delphi Analytica conducted a poll from July 14-18 of 668 Michigan residents. Of respondents who stated a preference between Debbie Stabenow and Robert Ritchie, 54% stated they would vote for Ritchie while 46% said they would vote for Debbie Stabenow. These results could indicate that Ritchie is a popular figure in Michigan, Debbie Stabenow is unpopular, or some combination of concurrent trends. The relatively large, 44%, number of undecided respondents may be due to the early stages of the campaign.


Michigan, once part of the Democrats vaunted “Blue Wall” is suddenly a battleground where Democrats and Republicans are now fighting for blue collar voters. This became a central theme during the 2016 election season, where Donald Trump won over the white working class vote. The question now is whether that support will rub off onto other Republicans candidates in the 2018 midterm elections. Robert Ritchie looks to capitalize on this fervor and promote his brand with song lyrics that appeal to these same Michigan voters, despite never having held any political office.

He's leading Stabenow by 8 points.

Like attracts like.

And we can have a US Senator whose sex tape with the lead singer of Creed gets mentioned every other week by a talk show host.

Ugh.

Just as long as they don't start showing clips of it. Blech.
Never seen any evidence of that.

Senator Rock will be a vast improvement over Debbie Stabenow, who is only there to vote like Chuck Schumer tells her to vote.

This is America where a millionaire's slacker son who dealt dope at a car wash is what Evangelical GOP voters crave in a senator.

He'd be a vast improvement over the two dopes your state sends to the Senate, that's for certain.

FWIW- Stabenow was one of the people ringing the alarm on how Clinton was running her campaign in the rust belt. First and last thing Stabenow will be campaigning on is saving the auto industry jobs back (via bailout) in 08 and that loan being paid back. She'll also be able to count on the traditional surge of voters against the White House in mid terms. It will be the first chance for someone in the state to measure Trump promises vs accomplishments.


As always I think it really comes down to who actually shows up to vote. I predict Stabenow gets higher voter percentages than Clinton or Trump. That doesn't mean a win since those two performed so poorly across the board. But she is not going to run a campaign from 10000 feet like some Dems are apt to do.

The answer to that question doesn't matter. The important one is can they do any better?

She got 200,000 more votes than Barack Obama did running on the same ticket in Michigan. Could she have become unpopular in the last 6 years, sure. But like I said, based on the people posting on this site, no one noticed her.
