Peters Widens Lead in Michigan A new Public Policy Polling survey in Michigan finds Gary Peters (D) matching his largest lead ever over Terri Lynn Land (R) in the U.S. Senate race, 43% to 36%, with third party candidates combining for 7%.
Key finding: "The story of the race is Land's continually declining favorability. She has dropped a net 28 points since December, from starting out at +11 (34/23) to falling all the way down now to -17 (32/49). Michigan is a Democratic state to begin with, and Peters is getting 12% of the Republican vote, while only 5% of Democrats say they're going to vote for Land." politicalwire.com/archives/2014/09/09/peters_widens_lead_in_michigan.html
