Dingell maintains double-digit lead

In the second reliable, independent poll in the race for 15th Congressional seat in the U.S. House, the dean of the House, Rep. John Dingell, D-Dearborn, maintains his double digit lead.

Dingell has a 17-point lead over Teabgger Rob Steele, according to a Detroit Free Press-WXYZ TV (Channel 7) poll. Dingell is leading 53-36 percent. According to the Free Press, EPIC-MRA of Lansing surveyed 400 likely voters in Michigan’s 15th Congressional District. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points, so at a minimum Dingell has a 12.1 percent lead.

Steele has touted a pair of questionable polls that had him within 4 percentage points, and one unbelievable poll amazingly had Steele actually winning by 4 points.

Steele has been on every righting national radio and TV show possible, and it has done little to cut into Dingell’s commanding lead. In a Detroit News/Local 4 WDIV poll last month, Dingell had a 19 point lead.

But Dingell is not easing up on the gas, and former President Bill Clinton is appearing at a GOTV rally in Ann Arbor on Sunday.

Gee, let's hope that Clinton doesn't forget his notes like he forgot where he put the bisquit for several months.

I wonder if he looked in his human humudor when he lost the nuke codes. Monica may have had it inserted right next to his cigar.

I sure wish he could run again. The rest of your rant makes no sense, anonymous coward, as usual. You add so much to the debate. I just hope Steele keeps spending money. Something tells me his ego will not allow him to do otherwise.

Once again, anonymous wimp, I am still waiting for you to back up your outrageous lie that we were “nearly shoulder to shoulder once.”
