It turns out that the rumors of U.S. Rep. John Dingells political demise may have been exaggerated.

Word of a recent poll that showed the U.S. Houses longest-serving member ever trailing a Republican newcomer made national headlines. But according to a Free Press-WXYZ TV (Channel 7) poll, the Dearborn Democrat enjoys a comfortable 53%-36% lead over Ann Arbor cardiologist Rob Steele.

That may be a far cry from the 70%-to-25% margin he held over Republican John Lynch in the 2008 election but its also a fairly comfortable lead, given that this is expected to be a strong year for Republican congressional candidates.

EPIC-MRA of Lansing surveyed 400 likely voters in Michigans 15th congressional district which stretches form Dearborn through Ann Arbor and south to the Ohio line last Saturday through Tuesday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.
