http://www.politico.com/blogs/david-catanese/2012/03/poll-shows-pathway-to-beating-amash-116027.html

The first test of an Amash-Pestka match up comes out 50 percent to 39 percent in favor of the incumbent.

After voters are read a positive profile on each candidate, the gap closes to just 2 points for Amash, 48 percent to 46 percent.

In the final test, using a "balanced battery of negatives on both candidates," it's 47 percent to 43 percent with Pestka in the lead.



Lol?

LOL indeed. Safe R. A talented guy, but his Ronulan views make it impossible to ever seek a promotion.

Amash can have a safe seat in western Michigan for as long as he wants to make a career out of it with current patterns.

His idea of freedom is - it is a bad thing and should be stopped at all costs.

Excellent. I find he doesn't actually blow as much as the rest of Congress, so I'm good with the idea of keeping him. He certainly adds a viewpoint to the Michigan delegation that you almost never see coming from the state.

I live in MI-03. Amash is probably leading by three times that much.

His voting record is pretty much what I expected it to be, and is fairly representative of the district. The number of times that he has broken ranks will likely benefit him when he wants to run for Governor or a Senate seat.

I'm actually surprised the polling is so close. An 11 point deficit is not surmountable, especially against a guy like Amash, who has been the lone "no" vote 8 times this session. It'll be interesting to see if this race can become more competitive as campaign season heats up.
