Michigan Senate Candidate Is Losing To A Twitter Handle

by evanmcmurry

Michigan’s GOP Senate candidate is losing to @LOLGOP, the funniest of the mock-conservative Twitter handles, in a PPP poll:

It is perhaps a sign of how dim GOP prospects in national elections are in Michigan that one of the party’s leading potential candidates for the Senate next year would trail in a hypothetical match up with a twitter handle. The person behind the well known liberal twitter handle LOLGOP lives in Ann Arbor and we find that LOLGOP would lead Congressman Justin Amash 23/22 in a head to head match.

To quote @LOLGOP, “It’s not fair to just point out I’m leading @repjustinamash in a poll. I’d probably be leading @GomezForMA, too.”
