Debbie Stabenow should be worried

Public Policy Polling finds support for Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., to be very thin at the moment, pinning her approval rating at just 41 percent. Her disapproval is at just 40 percent, but there could be an opportunity here for Republicans to drive that up with a serious challenge.

Stabenow, who defeated Republican Sen. Spence Abraham in 2000, polls in the low 40s and she only narrowly leads several hypothetical Republican opponents, including Reps. Pete Hoekstra and Candice Miller, and Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land.
