With less than two weeks to go before the Nov. 2 election, Republican Rand Paul holds a slim lead over Democrat Jack Conway in their race for the U.S. Senate, a new Kentucky Poll shows.
Paul, a favorite of the Tea Party movement whose campaign has focused on limited government, holds a 5 point lead over Conway among likely voters 48 percent to 43 percent, with 9 percent undecided.
Thats not a great majority of a lead for Paul but I believe its almost impossible for a conservative Republican to lose in Kentucky this year, said national political analyst Larry J. Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics.

5 point lead!? Didn’t the Conway attack in regard to “Aqua Buddha” backfire?
Bet he wins by closer to Ten.
Fudged media exit polls show a very close race on Tuesday afternoon.
This gives the media the excuse to NOT call the race for Rand immediately as the polls close. This is important because Kentucky's polls close earlier than any other state and if the liberal media calls it for Rand it may risk demoralizing liberal voters in other states.
Therefore, as they have done so many times before, the media will call liberal victories instantly while prolonging doubt about Republican victories in order to energize the liberal base and demoralize our side.
In the end, Rand wins by 10.
Indiana closes early too, and the media will pretty much have to call that Senate race for Republican Dan Coats immediately (it should be a landslide) - but they will be careful to point out that this was an expected R pickup and therefore means nothing and certainly does not in any way indicate a bad night for the looney left.
We’re on the cusp of that point when all the empty-headed “undecideds” are going to be forced to make a choice, and it’s going break “R.”
Good analysis. I think the media is really skewing this thing, too, to their own (Democratic) advantage.
Since when did 5% become slim?
If the final result is 1,000,000 to 950,000 a total of 50,000 votes, will that be viewed as slim?
This is a Mason Dixon poll. Doesn’t get much better than that.
