Poll Watch: Rasmussen (R) Michigan 2012 Senatorial Survey

Rasmussen (R) Michigan 2012 Senate Poll
  • Debbie Stabenow (D) 46% (48%)
  • Pete Hoekstra (R) 40% (39%)
  • Some other candidate 5% (3%)
  • Undecided 9% (10%)
  • Debbie Stabenow (D) 47% (48%)
  • Clark Durant (R) 39% (37%)
  • Some other candidate 4% (4%)
  • Undecided 10% (10%)
Survey of 500 likely voters was conducted July 23, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 4.5 percentage points.  Results from the poll conducted June 14, 2012 are in parentheses.

Inside the numbers:
Eight-out-of-10 Michigan Republicans like both hopefuls for the party’s nomination. Stabenow earns slightly stronger support among Democrats in the state against Durant and Hoekstra. Both Republicans hold a slight lead among voters not affiliated with either of the major parties.

Twenty-six percent (26%) of Michigan voters share a very favorable opinion of Stabenow, while 27% view her very unfavorably. But just seven percent (7%) have no opinion of her.

Durant is seen very favorably by 11% and very unfavorably by 14%. Seventeen percent (17%) hold a very favorable view of Hoekstra, while 18% regard him very unfavorably. But roughly one-quarter of the state’s voters don’t know enough about either Republican to venture even a soft opinion of him.
