Skip to comments.McConnell in trouble in Kentucky senate race (Only 45-44 over Democrat; 51% Disapproval Rate)

Mitch McConnell, the leader of the Republican Party in the U.S. Senate, has low ratings among voters in his native Kentucky, according to a survey released Wednesday by Public Policy Polling.
According to PPP, 37 percent approve of McConnell's performance as a senator, and 51 disapprove.
He has a one point lead, 45-44, over possible Democratic contender Alison Lundergan Grimes.
Since the estimated margin of error for the survey is plus or minus about four percentage points, the senate race is essentially even.

Kentucky Conservatives should be screaming for Bevin to get support in primary against McConnell before he blows a conservative seat
If I have to die this year, my fervent wish is to see this bastard lose in his primary along with the other RINO traitors that are up for re-election.
McConnell is an idiot. Should’ve stayed conservative.
Time for Rand Paul to start backpeddling. Fast.
Yeah...well watch him “pivot” right ....until after the election.
Was he ever conservative? Or did he just say and act like he was conservative to get elected.
Isn’t PPP essentially pro-Dem in their polling?
Kentucky is one of the few states won by Romney over Obama. It was 61-38.
To lose Kentucky a conservative has to be trying to lose. (Or must be seen as a cronyist and not a conservative....the case with McConnell)
Right now McConnell is kryptonite, but Matt Bevins has some good endorsements, and unless Paul wants to see a split Kentucky Senate, then he’s got to take a side between now and the primary.
It’s not like he owes anything to McConnell. McConnell fought for Paul’s opponent against Rand Paul tooth and nail during Paul’s campaign in Kentucky.
Given what will inevitably happen with regards to immigration, the GOP is dead.
Best for us to start devoting time to real conservatives and let the RINOs slowly rot into the slime that is democrats.
This is exactly how we are going to destroy the Republican Party and make it impossible for conservatives to ever have a significant voice again - by allowing Democrats to be elected over Republicans, even if the Republicans are RINOs. The way to defeat RINOs is to replace them with true conservatives in the primaries, not by electing Democrats!
We need to stand for Conservatives - FIRST; Republicans - second; and do everything possible to defeat Democrats / leftists / socialists!
I agree. If the GOP tries to push “comprehensive immigration (read: amnesty)” through, then the GOP is dead.
McConnell has the funds to bury Bevins, but not Grimes.
Like Romney, he’ll destroy the conservative, but then lose to the democrat.
Those polls from a year ago that had him nearly losing to a brain-addled Ashley Judd were for real.
