    Congressman Kerry Bentivolio (R-11) leads Farmington Hills attorney and foreclosure king David Trott 59.55% to 40.45%, according to polling released today.

    The poll was a collaborative effort between Murray Communications, a Michigan-based Republican political consulting firm; Portable Insights, a Rhode Island-based opinion research company; and Combat Data Inc., a Michigan-based political data and voter outreach services company.

    Bentivolio, a Republican from Milford, was elected to Congress last year after then-Rep. Thaddeus McCotter was disqualified from the primary ballot after failing to turn in the required minimum number of valid petition signatures.

    Trott announced his primary challenge last week.

    Continued below the fold

    The 19% margin could fluctuate between now and the August 5 election depending on how well messaging is done, and money spent on the race.  According to the polling firms participating, Trott has started out well.  Combat data's Brian Bellgowan notes
    "It's surprising to see Trott start so well since he has not really started to campaign. Nothing catches a 19% deficit faster than resources and time, both of which Trott has."
    But Christopher Mark of Portable Insights gives a cautionary, though positive perspective for Bentivolio
    "Bentivolio can hold this seat. Republican primary voters seem to be willing to give him a chance. But, if he doesn't raise enough money to be competitive with Trott, I suspect this 19% margin will begin to evaporate,"

    The automated survey of 717 likely 11th District Republican primary voters was conducted on Tuesday, September 10 and has a margin of error of 3.66%. Full results follow:

    ALL RESPONSES.............100.00% (717)
    Kerry Bentivolio...........59.55% (427)
    David Trott................40.45% (290)

    MEN ONLY...................47.98% (344)
    Kerry Bentivolio...........56.39% (194)
    David Trott................43.60% (150)

    WOMEN ONLY.................52.02% (373)
    Kerry Bentivolio...........62.47% (233)
    David Trott................37.53% (140)

    A lot can happen between now and November.  Right now the upside I see for Kerry is that Trott is a foreclosure shyster.  Folks see the District of Corruption needing another slimy legalese merchant added to it like they need a case of the crabs.

    However, if disciples of this nutty old bastard keep providing Henry the Payne and among the trees "Chem-trails since the 50's" ammunition to frag Kerry with, that shyster with deep pockets and connections that Nutty Nancy could only dream of may just end up sinking Bentivolio's boat.

    Time and money is on Trott's side.  So are the fringe Ronulan cult of Bentivolio followers popping off their delusional Bee-esS on video.  Trott's team of Bishop, Cox, Rocky, and Romney, know that too.
