Article.

Snyder (R)- 49%
Schauer (D)- 37%

They said at RRH that these guys skewed 4-7 points Republican in 2012 but they have a decent off-year record.

If the election for the United States Senate was being held today and the candidates were Debbie Stabenow the Democrat and Pete Hoekstra the Republican who would you be voting for? If you are voting for or leaning towards Stabenow press 1, voting for or leaning towards Hoekstra press 2, if you’re not sure yet press 3.
Stabenow 44
Hoekstra 45
Not sure yet 11

This was long after the infamous "bicycle in a rice paddy" ad... long after everyone knew that Pete Hoekstra was going down to a landslide defeat. Debbie Stabenow won about 59-38.

Hoekstra didn't even make 45% as the poll suggested.

For those who never saw it -- at the least the woman is attractive. So is the scenery.

But I caught that she was not from China. Her alleged broken English was about as fake as it could be. Neophyte Chinese learners of English typically get English consonant clusters badly because those do not exist in Chinese. She got them as if she were a native speaker of English, which she probably is... It's about as if some German presents himself as an American by using broken German but uses a rapid cadence of speech characteristic of Germans but not of native speakers of English. 

She was also very sophisticated about American right-wing politics, which is itself spurious for someone from China.

Someone discussing the video exposed that she had a hairdo typical more of someone from Vietnam than from China... not that I would know.   

The real joke was that she was bragging about her country getting rich -- but she is in a rice paddy. The great wealth in China is not being created in rice paddies.  If I had created the ad I would have shown Shanghai or Hong Kong and not some rice paddy. 

It turns out that she was from California, and the Chinese landscape was almost certainly dubbed in.

Apparently this poll had a bunch of push questions that Mitchell left off the PDF.

And they were all asked before the Senate/Gov matchups.
