Six months into his presidency, Donald Trump continues to face a lot of opposition from "professional politicians" who take themselves way too seriously -- even from within the GOP. 

But these "political animals" had better watch out, as they have feet of clay, as far as the public is concerned. This was demonstrated recently by the feelers put out by musician Kid Rock for the Michigan Senate race, which takes place a year and a half later.

Kid Rock probably won't even run, as being a senator would probably cramp that rock n' roll lifestyle of his too much (although, of course, Senators also get up to all sorts of depraved shit as well). 

But if he did run he would probably win because he has the two things that count the most with voters these days -- (1) name recognition and (2) not being an actual politician. 

There is so much cynicism about both of the main parties in America today that anyone who can do a "Trump" -- a recognized name coming from outside the system -- can practically walk into office. This is certainly borne out by the latest opinion polls that show the Kid miles ahead of all the other Republican candidates and beating the Democrat incumbent, Debbie Stabenow by 54 points to 46. And this is some guy who presents himself as a "White trash" rap-rocker!

But the question remains will he or won't he run? A statement on his website gave few clues but suggests Kid Rock sees himself as a Trumpian "radical centrist":
"As part of the excitement surrounding this possible campaign, I decided to take a hard look to see if there was real support for me as a candidate and my message or if it was just because it was a fresh new news story. The one thing I’ve seen over and over is that although people are unhappy with the government, too few are even registered to vote or do anything about it. We have over a year left until an actual election, so my first order of business is to get people engaged and registered to vote while continuing to put out my ideas on ways to help working class people in Michigan and America all while still calling out these jackass lawyers who call themselves politicians."
