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.

What if he switches to Democrat?
What if he switches to Democrat?
He’s a Senator. None of them are conservative.
Would Jim Bunning have the guts to support Bevins, after McConnell ran him out of the Senate.
But you are arguing that no Republican should be challenged in the primary?
If they defeat Bevin in the the primary, they’ll lose in November. Then the GOPe will lecture Kentucky conservatives for not supporting their moderate. “The most important thing is to keep the senate,” they’ll say. Their insistence on keeping the marble mouth, lobbyists’ best friend is why they’ll lose.
Don’t worry. He has a PLAN! The plan is to pass amnesty to curry favor with illegal aliens!
Then the game the GOP is playing with us will continue forever.
Sorry, but I don’t accept any polling data from PPP as legitimate... They are a left-wing Democrat “polling” firm with a left-wing agenda and routinely skew their polls heavily in favor of Democrats.
I read the comment and knew exactly what the poster was saying.
Take the RINO out in the primary if it can be done.
And somehow, I detect that you think this is a bad idea? :-) /sarcasm.
(PPP) Pure Poppycock Polling also said that huckster was #1 amongst republican base voters and jebby bush-league is second. Cruz is around 96th. I’d believe carville before I’d believe anything PPP says... and I will NEVER believe a word that carville says.
"Democracy demands an educated and informed electorate" - Thomas Jefferson
And, to me "electorate" means those who participate in the election process. So, to paraphrase: "Democracy demands the participation of those who are educated and informed."
Not if we systematically replace RINOs in the primaries and then help get them elected.
The alternative is to allow Democrats to be elected - that would be the only thing worse than electing RINOs.
I have no idea what he is doing now or how much cachet he still has with the Kentucky GOP. Does any Kentucky Freeper know?
Disagree, my FRiend... I much prefer to have my enemies on the other team, not my own.
A lot of these RINO would rather a DEM win than a Conservative. If they lose the primary to a Conservative, they will back DEM
We heard this argument used for decades. Nothing ever improve because we always pick lessor of two evils
I agree. Better to know your enemy than to have a supposed friend stab you in the back.
