As bad as McC is, people in KY think he’s peaches and cream. They must be truly uninformed.
Well, speaking as someone “next door” (we see a lot of the KY political ads on TV, and spend a lot of time in and have many friends in KY), I’d have to say that McConnell’s main appeal is bringing home the pork. In fact, that seems to be pretty much the entire focus of his current ads. “He cares”, you know. And, it is true that he’s more conservative on most issues than whoever runs against him in the fall. But, and I’ll grant you this is not a scientific poll by any means, I don’t think a lot of Kentuckians are particularly happy with Mitch at this point.
