polls look good for Peters (D) in MI-09

MI-09: Polls aplenty

The U.S. House race in Michigan's 9th District, pitting former State Senator and State Lottery Commissioner Gary Peters (D) against incumbent Rep. Joe Knollenberg, has seen a great deal of polling the last few days.

With what we've seen, plus the McCain campaign pulling out of Michigan, it's fair to say that the momentum strongly favors Peters, the Democrat.

First, the DCCC's poll, just released today:

Grove Insight for the DCCC. 10/4-5. Likely voters. MoE 4.9%. (8/17-19 numbers)

Peters (D) 46 (41)
Knollenberg (R) 37 (39)
Kevorkian (I) 2 (8)

In two months, that's a swing of 7 points in Peters' direction, and he currently leads by 9. Excellent.

Peters' own internals show a tighter race, but they have our man ahead as well:

Greenberg Quinlan Rosner for Gary Peters. 10/6-7. Likely voters. MoE 4.9%.

Peters (D) 43
Knollenberg (R) 40
Kevorkian (I) 5

No trend lines, but that's polling we can believe in, folks.

Knollenberg has not released his own internals (rather telling, that), so we're left to a somewhat funky independent poll (MoE of 6 points), which shows the race tied:

Mitchell Research & Communications. 9/30-10/2. Likely voters. MoE 6%.

Peters (D) 43
Knollenberg (R) 43


Three polls, not a single one showing the incumbent ahead. No wonder Joe Knollenberg is flailing to the point where he's begging Sarah Palin to come save his sorry ass.

1. If Palin comes to campaign for Joe, I'd love to protest and throw mud. Literally.
It's no doubt get me arrested ... but mud-throwing is about all she comprehends.

2. I've got some rotten tomatoes in my garden......
I'd be happy to use on her or donate to the cause. I don't want her anywhere near this state. We have enough problems without her coming. Let the tundra trash go back to Alaska where she can be recalled.

And even though I don't live in Oakland County, I'm in Macomb, I can't wait to see ole' Knollenberg given his walking papers.
