Kid Rock, the rapper-turned-rocker-turned-country-star -- and now a possible U.S. Senate candidate -- tweeted a link Monday morning (July 24) to a website showing him leading in a poll against Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow.

The site, a conservative blog, alleged that a Delphi Analytica poll showed the "All Summer Long" singer leading 30 percent to 26 percent against Stabenow. The poll's veracity could not be confirmed, however, as the site is currently down.

Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, announced his decision to run for Senate in his home state of Michigan earlier this month by tweeting a picture of a yard sign reading "Kid Rock for U.S. Senate" with a link to his candidacy website.

I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real… https://t.co/RRVgISDFeq The answer is an absolute YES. pic.twitter.com/uYCUg6mjW1
