Peters Stuck in Neutral

One third of Michiganders still don’t know who Senator Peters is

LANSING, Mich., March 25, 2020 – New polling released today by Marketing Resource Group (MRG), a Lansing-based communications firm, has put the Michigan Senate race within single digits. According to the polling, nearly a third of Michiganders still don’t know who Michigan’s junior senator is after decades in public office.

Gary Peters continues struggling to buoy his stagnant name ID. Peters currently sits at a 22% favorability rating, with a 17% unfavourability rating – and another third of voters still don’t even know who the junior senator is. John James currently holds a 20% lead over Peters in Macomb County and is within striking distance statewide. The poor numbers for Peters come after the Chuck Schumer-backed Senate Majority PAC have sank more than $5 million into TV ads to attack James with a false healthcare narrative.

"It is abundantly clear that the hardworking people of Michigan see through the out-of-touch rhetoric the Democrat Party is trying to sell. After over a decade of holding public office, Michiganders still can’t identify who Gary Peters is.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. Cox continued, “Come November, I look forward to delivering battle-tested combat veteran and businessman, John James to the U.S. Senate where he belongs.”
