Amash up big in Club for Growth poll

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) has a commanding lead in his primary, according to a poll conducted by the Club for Growth, which is backing the congressman.

Amash has a 60 percent to 12 percent lead over Brian Ellis (R), according to the poll, and his approval rating is 61 percent with Republicans in the district.

Partisan polls, especially ones conducted just on one day, should always be viewed with some skepticism. But a 48-point lead is a huge gap for Ellis to overcome between now and the August 5 primary.

The Club endorsed the libertarian-minded congressman shortly after Ellis entered the race, and has been running ads attacking Ellis in the district. The poll shows they’ve had an impact: Ellis’s favorable rating is just 8 percent and his unfavorable rating sits at 21 percent.

The centrist Chamber of Commerce indicated when Ellis launched his campaign that it would help target Amash. But so far the congressman has had more outside support in the race and has much more cash in the bank, with $730,000 to Ellis’s $340,000.
