Poll finds Dem weakness in Michigan 

Republicans have a real chance to make it a race in Michigan this cycle, according to a poll from EPIC-MRA. Barack Obama trails Mitt Romney in a hypothetical matchup, 46 to 41 percent, and Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D, only polls at 44 percent to former Republican Rep. Pete Hoekstra's 42 percent.

Republicans have had quite a dry spell in Michigan, but even then they managed to win down-ticket statewide races for attorney general and secretary of state. The state is certainly not a lost cause -- we saw in 2010 that Republicans can win races all the way up and down the ticket under the right conditions.

Stabenow's seat can be added to a list of vulnerable Democratic Senate seats in North Dakota, Nebraska, Virginia, and Montana.
