First poll since Amash attacked the President has primary challenger Jim Lower with huge lead

Speculation that Representative Justin Amash (R-MI) may run for president as a Libertarian would seem to be aided by results of a recent poll. If the numbers hold up, State Representative Jim Lower could boot Amash out of his seat in the House during the GOP primary.

The poll by Lansing-based Practical Political Consulting shows Lower up by 16%.

Amash came under fire after siding with Democrats and calling for President Trump’s impeachment following the release of the Mueller report. He has since enjoyed a lot of support from Libertarians and NeverTrump Republicans, but has been attacked by much of the GOP. Yesterday, he left the House Freedom Caucus.

Lower expressed contentment in Twitter following the release of the poll:

There are four options for Amash:

  1. Keep going and try to win the primary
  2. Leave Congress and run for president
  3. Run for Congress as a Libertarian
  4. Move to the private sector

It’s still far too early in election season for Amash to be too concerned, but it’s telling that he’s down by so many points. He may just run for president in order to save face instead of losing to Lower.
