Of the 668 participants polled, Rock received 30 percent of the vote and Stabenow received 26 percent of the vote, placing the entertainer four points ahead in a hypothetical general election mashup. Almost half of the poll's respondents remained undecided, and, among those who selected a preference, Rock led 54-46 percent.
