Almost immediately after announcing his candidacy, and before any real campaigning, Kid Rock is already leading the polls against incumbent Democratic Senator Debbie Stabenow.
In a new poll from Delphi Analytica, the Michigan favorite, Kid Rock, or Robert James Ritchie, is polling four points ahead of sitting Senator Stabenow, with 30% to her 26%, while 44% declined to answer or were undecided.
“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,” Delphi Analytica reported.
The poll was conducted from July 14-18 — beginning just two days after the Macomb County musician announced his intention to run in the Republican primary.
As of April, Stabenow had a 47% approval rating and a 38% disapproval rating, according to the Morning Consult.
Ritchie took to Twitter on July 12 to verify that a new website, KidRockForSenate.com, is legitimate. The website reads, “are you scared?” along with a photo of the rocker next to a stuffed deer. The site also links to a web store to buy campaign merchandise.
The “Bawitdaba” singer later tweeted what appears to be his campaign platform in a short, but sweet, manner.
“I believe if you work your butt off and pay taxes, you should be able to easily understand and navigate the laws, tax codes, health care and anything else the government puts in place that affects us all,” Ritchie tweeted of his political stance.

Michigan was once considered to be a solid blue state, going for Barack Obama in both of his elections. It is now a battleground, which Bernie Sanders won in a landslide during the primaries, and President Donald Trump won in the general. This has been widely credited to the state largely consisting of blue collar voters who feel forgotten and neglected by “business as usual.”
While a new Rasmussen Reports national survey found that voters are not overly thrilled about electing more celebrities, someone like Ritchie may defy their expectations. He is widely considered a “hometown hero” of sorts, highly regarded for his donations to worthy causes — especially veterans organizations.
His straightforward approach is also very reminiscent of the man who is now occupying the Oval Office.
Ritchie visited the White House in April along with Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent, making waves when the group mockingly posed in front of a portrait of Hillary Clinton.
This was not the musician’s first time openly sharing his political opinions — a rare and refreshing move for celebrities holding right-wing beliefs.
As we previously reported, Ritchie was a major supporter of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
“My feeling: Let the motherf*cking business guy run it like a f*cking business,” Kid Rock told Rolling Stone during an interview in February, 2016. “I’m digging Trump. I feel like a lot of people, whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, feel like if you get Hillary or Bernie, or you get Rubio or Cruz or whoever, there’s going to be the same sh*t.”
In December, Kid Rock began selling red hats in his merch store that said, “Make America Badass Again” — a play on Trump’s iconic “Make America Great Again” hats. He also sold shirts that read “GOD GUNS & TRUMP,” and one which showed the electoral map and labeled the red areas as “America” and the blue as “Dumbfuckistan.”

Another shirt in his highly political merch store reads “_onald Trump,” then adds, “The ‘D’ is missing because it’s in every hater’s mouth.”
There is a rebellion happening against the swamp — and what better way to rebel than with a crass, long haired, political outsider with a sex-tape who wants to Make America Great Again? Those who are discounting Ritchie’s run are likely the same types who gave Hillary Clinton a 85% chance of winning the election or printed and sent out ‘Madam President‘ commemorative issues of their magazine.
Those paying attention to the current political climate outside the swamp are already preparing their “His Name is Senator Kiiiiiid Rock” headlines.
Louie Gohmert Blames Mask Usage for COVID-19 Diagnosis, Plans to Take Hydroxychloroquine to Treat Virus
The mask may have caused him to catch the Chinavirus.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, which the fake news media has attributed to his lack of using a face mask.
However, Gohmert says he tested positive for the disease after complying with mask mandates more than ever. He feels the mask usage did not protect him from getting the virus and may have even contributed to it.
He told reporters that it is “ironic” that he would catch COVID-19 now “because a lot of people have made a big deal out of my not wearing a mask a whole lot, but in the last week or two I have worn a mask more than I have in the whole last four months.”
“I can’t help but wonder if by keeping a mask on and keeping it in place, if I might have put some germs, some of the virus on the mask and breathed it in,” Gohmert said.
Democrats are chiding Gohmert because he has talked against lockdown policies, mask mandates, and more overreach implemented because of COVID-19 mass hysteria.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that she is “sorry for my members, who are concerned because he has been showing up at meetings without a mask and making a thing of it.”
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) added that he is “concerned about the irresponsible behavior of many of the Republicans who have chosen to consistently flout well-established public health guidance perhaps out of fealty to their boss, Donald Trump, who is the head of the anti-mask movement in America.”
Big League Politics has reported on how the mass hysteria has caused Americans to turn on their heritage of freedom and liberty to support forcible unconstitutional mandates:
A new poll from Morning Consult/Politico reveals that a solid majority of Americans support a mask mandate that would implement fines of jail time for those that refuse to wear masks in public places.
The asks registered voters if they’d support a mandated implemented by their state government. 72% of of responding registered voters stated that they’d “strongly” or “somewhat” support a state-implemented mask mandate that is punishable by jail time or fines.
The poll asked the following question.
“Based on what you know about the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus), would you support or oppose your state instituting a face mask mandate in public spaces, where not wearing a mask could be punishable by fine or jail time?”
Curiously, Baby Boomers, one of America’s most conservative voting demographics, support a mask mandate most strenuously. 78% of Boomers support the mask mandate. Millennials (68%) and Generation Z (63%) support it the least, although wide majorities still do.
Democrats support the mask mandate in almost unanimous fashion, with 86% of them supporting it. A solid majority of Republicans support mandatory masks as well, with a majority of 58%.
There simply is widespread public support for wearing a mask and taking limited measures to deter the spread of coronavirus in the United States. Republicans and conservatives risk alienating such popular sentiment at their own electoral peril.
Gohmert plans to take hydroxychloroquine in order to treat COVID-19 and fend off potential symptoms.
“My doctor and I are all in, and I got a text just before I came on from a dear friend, [a] doctor, who just found out he had it, and he said he started a HCQ [hydroxychloroquine] regimen, too,” Gohmert said while appearing on Fox News.
“I got a tiny little taste of what you and the president get every day,” Gohmert said to host Sean Hannity, “The left went nuts.”
Gohmert hopes to be among the 99.7 percent of coronavirus sufferers who recover from the disease.
