Two polls show him beating not only Stabenow, but all of his Republican primary rivals:
From July 14-18, “Delta Analytica conducted a poll…of 668 Michigan residents. Of respondents who stated a preference between Debbie Stabenow and Robert Ritchie, 54% stated they would vote for Ritchie while 46% said they would vote for Debbie Stabenow.”
That said, 44% of respondents were ultimately undecided, which is a substantial number.
On Friday, a poll from Robert C. Cahaly showed Kid Rock crushing his primary opponents, and narrowly beating Stabenow:

Lest anyone think Kid Rock is unqualified, the rapper himself once said: “Who holds it down like Bad Leroy Brown? Now I won't stop cause yo I'm Kid Rock, the Genuine Article.”
There you have it.
