There’s Still Some Fight Left in This Rocky


One more race where I worried I was being a bit too optimistic predicting a GOP win, only to see a late poll suggest things look good for the Republican, this time in Michigan:

A new poll conducted by Great Lakes Strategies shows Republican 9th District Congressional District Rocky Raczkowski with a 5-percentage point lead (48 percent to 43 percent) over U.S. Rep. Gary Peters (D-West Bloomfield).

The sample size was 700 and the poll has a margin of error of 4 percent.

“This poll shows that Rocky has gained serious momentum heading into the final days and hours of the campaign, but the race still could go either way,” said Matt Golden of the Great Lakes Strategies Group.
