The Delphi Analytica poll shows Kid Rock (a/k/a Robert Ritchie) at 54%, with Stabenow at 46%.

President Donald Trump and the Republican Congress have both put forward tax reform plans that contain lots and lots of really great ideas. They both simplify the code, eliminate some taxes, reduce the rates of others – and in general are geared to allow for vigor to return to our long vigor-less economy.
