BIRMINGHAM, Michigan – New polling conducted by ALG Research shows Haley Stevens has expanded her lead in the Michigan 11th congressional race. With less than three weeks until Election Day, Stevens, 44 percent, now holds a 10-point lead over former Trump Campaign Co-Chair Lena Epstein, 34 percent, with 16 percent of voters undecided. Conducted October 10 through 14, the poll shows Stevens ahead by an all-time high margin, doubling her lead since ALG’s October 4 poll.
Stevens’ 10-point lead also doubles the generic party ballot advantage for Democrats, where a Democrat leads a Republican by 5 percent — 46 to 41 percent. President Donald Trump’s favorability remains stuck underwater at 46 to 51 percent, with a significant 45 percent polled viewing him “very unfavorably.”
“Michiganders know that Haley Stevens — the Chief of Staff to President Obama’s Auto Rescue — has always fought for Michigan and always will,” said Blake McCarren, Communications Director for Haley Stevens for Congress. “Her relentless focus on Michigan’s advanced manufacturing economy and making healthcare more affordable resonates with voters, while former Trump campaign co-chair Lena Epstein’s blind support for Donald Trump tarnishes her image with Michiganders.”
The new polling follows Haley Stevens recent record-setting third quarter fundraising number of $1.96 million, four times what Lena Epstein was able to bring in over the same time period.
