2 min read

Here’s the latest news today out of Michigan:

Michigan Democratic U.S. Senator Gary Peters has increased his lead over Republican challenger John James heading into the final stretch of the 2020 election, a new WDIV/Detroit News poll shows.
The race for the U.S. Senate seat in Michigan has been a tight one, with previous WDIV/Detroit News polls showing the race in the margin of error – or just outside of it.

Since the early October survey, there has a been a major shift in the race. Gary Peters now leads John James by a margin of 48.4%-38.8%, with 8.7% of voters remaining undecided. Peters leads by 9.6%, virtually matching Biden’s percentage of 49.3.%. At 38.8%, James trails Trump’s 41.6% by 2.8% points.

  • Peters is winning 91.3% of Biden voters and 6.4% of Trump voters.
  • James is winning 87.0% of Trump voters and 2.4% of Biden voters.
  • Voters who are undecided in the US Senate race are splitting their vote equally in the Presidential race.

More recent polling has confirmed that both Peters and Biden’s leads in Michigan have been growing:
