LANSING, Mich. — New polling numbers are showing just how close some of the top races in Michigan remain less than seven weeks from Election Day.

According to a survey by Vanguard Public Affairs and Denno Research, Democratic Rep. Gary Peters is leading Terri Lynn Land by seven points in their race for U.S. Senate.

Polling aggregator Real Clear Politics, which compiles both national and state surveys, shows Peters maintaining a five-point lead.

    I never really heard much about Peters but his name is proclaimed in every ad that I guess is supposed to be for Terri Lynn Land. If name recognition has anything to do with someone getting elected, Land people are giving Peters a great big boost

    Terry Lynn Land has become a nonfactor in the race. Every time she opens her mouth her poll numbers go down. That’s probably why she refuses to debate Peters. The only way she has anyone chance of winning is if even liberals decide instead of supporting corporate candidate Peters they vote for Jim Fulner. His grass roots campaign focused on an anti-war message and freedom of marriage may be enough for Peters to worry.
