Get ready to welcome Senator Kid Rock. Recent polls show that the musician is dominating Michigan Republicans. Staid, boring establishment conservatives are in trouble; Americans want new blood.
Honest, straightforward people are a lot more attractive than your typical slimy politician. Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, appeals to a lot of voters.
“[S]ince President Trump did the unthinkable and flipped Michigan from blue to red in the 2016 presidential election, someone like Ritchie has the potential to harness that populist rage and resonate with blue-collar Democrats and union voters who turned to Trump,” Pollster Jonathan Zogby predicted.
“Voters also might be attracted to Ritchie’s free spirit and ‘shoot from the hip’ personality.”
Kid Rock is a solid conservative who identifies with real American values. He’s approachable. He seems like a guy that you can trust.
“If you want to take a knee or sit during our Star-Spangled Banner, call me a racist cuz I’m not PC and think you have to remind me that Black Lives Matter,” the musician said. “Nazis, f***ing bigots and now again the KKK, screw all you a**holes, stay the f*** away.”
If Kid Rock nabs a seat in the Michigan Senate, it’ll reinvigorate the Republican party. He has a better chance of holding onto the voter enthusiasm engendered by Trump than almost any other candidate.
“I can tell you, I have no problem selling Kid Rock shirts and yes, I absolutely will use this media circus to sell/promote whatever I damn well please (many other politicians are doing the same thing, they just feed you a bunch of bulls**t about it),” Kid Rock said defiantly.
