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.
COWARD: Sen. James Lankford Grovels to Black Constituents for Opposing Electoral Fraud
Lankford is an ethnomasochist.
Since last week’s siege on the U.S. Capitol, there has been a tremendous amount of groveling from Republican cowards desperate to save face and avoid media scrutiny, but Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) has taken it to a new low.
Lankford issued a letter apologizing to his black constituents for opposing electoral fraud. He is sorry because the areas that committed the most fraud just so happened to be diverse inner-city communities. Multiculturalism means that fraud is ignored, and it is our national strength. This is the credo of the New America.
The Oklahoma senator wrote that his efforts “caused a firestorm of suspicion among many of my friends, particularly in Black communities around the state. I was completely blindsided, but I also found a blind spot.”
“What I did not realize was all of the national conversation about states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, was seen as casting doubt on the validity of votes coming out of predominantly Black communities like Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Detroit,” he wrote.
“After decades of fighting for voting rights, many Black friends in Oklahoma saw this as a direct attack on their right to vote, for their vote to matter, and even a belief that their votes made an election in our country illegitimate,” he added.
Lankford’s pathetic obsequious letter apologizing for fighting the vote steal shows why the Republican Party is dying, and Republican politicians are despised by their own rank-and-file party members. There is little difference between a GOP elected official and a social justice activist these days.
“I can assure you, my intent to give a voice to Oklahomans who had questions was never also an intent to diminish the voice of any Black American. I should have recognized how what I said and what I did could be interpreted by many of you,” he wrote. “I deeply regret my blindness to that perception, and for that I am sorry.”
Big League Politics has reported on how the Capitol riot forced RINOs to show their true colors and publicly express the disdain they have always held for President Trump:
Mitch McConnell is reportedly “pleased” about the possibility of Trump’s second impeachment, viewing it as an opportunity to purge Trump from the Republican Party and whatever else Conservative Inc. deems “toxic.”
In a New York Times report published Monday afternoon, Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman write that the outgoing Senate Majority Leader believes Trump committed “impeachable offenses.” McConnell also welcomes impeachment in order to justify dumping Trump and shedding his influence over the GOP.
“Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, has indicated that he wants to see the specific article of impeachment that the House is set to approve on Wednesday, which is expected to draw support from as many as a dozen Republicans, potentially including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 in the House,” the report reads. “But he has made clear in private discussions that he believes now is the moment to move on the weakened lame duck, whom he blames for causing Republicans to lose the Senate.”
The Republican Party can either become the Trump party moving forward or go extinct. With cowards like Lankford among the ranks, they may actually choose extinction because they’re that weak.
