According to a new poll, Kid Rock is leading in a hypothetical match-up against challenger, Debbie Stabenow.

His announcement sent a shock through the media and many dismissed it as a cheap publicity stunt. While Ritchie has yet to file his official documentation to seek the office, he stated his intentions on Twitter and pushed back at his critics, saying “the press is wrong.”
