LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Nine months before Kentucky's 2014 U.S. Senate election, Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes leads five-term incumbent Sen. Mitch McConnell (R) 46% to 42% in a WHAS11/Courier-Journal Bluegrass Poll released Thursday.
McConnell enjoys a comfortable 26 point margin in the Republican primary contest against Matt Bevin in the poll conducted by Survey USA and commissioned by a partnership of WHAS11, The Courier-Journal, WKYT-TV in Lexington and the Lexington Herald-Leader.
If the people of KY want Mitch after all he has and hasn’t done, they deserve to be represented by him.
From the article: “Sixty percent of likely voters in the Bluegrass Poll disapprove of McConnell’s job performance”.
That’s gonna be a hard sell.
The problem with this country are the people that are swayed by radio and TV ads. I understand it but it amazes me that people fall for it, especially in this day and age when everything there is know about politicians and their record is literally at your finger tips.
That's got to indicate a big swing from this poll by election day. Hang tough, Bevin. Make Mitch nervous
I stopped believing Dem media push polls that onky benefit the Dems and not the Conservative option.
Recall PPP poll that was the media gospel how Ken. C in VA was getting crushed but surprise lost by only 2 %.
They all knew that and hide it to keep voter turn out low.
Its the same scam here !
Trust me Mitchy has shifted right on immigration because Bevin is moving in for the kill.
But the local left Dem media in KY will not let that fact get out !
Oh yeah...like a LIBERAL DEMOCRAT will be better....REALLY??? Do TELL how so!!
This poll is BS. McConnell is in trouble and he’s having his KY friends in the media posit favorable ratings for him.
I LOVE how staunchly conservative Pols like Mitch get religion come election time. :-)
If we just had an election every year? Mitch would be awesome!
What a crock!!!No way a democrat wins Kentucky in 2014.....lots more insurance policies to get cancelled!!
Need more details on this poll before we can pass judgment. Is it Likely Voters? What are the crosstabs and poll make up? Is that consistent with previous election turnouts?
Horrible for Bevin. I mean I loathe McConnell so much I can live with losing the seat and then getting it back later, but how is this possible? I have high hopes for Bevin.
We’ll show the GOP-e, vote for Lundergan.
What is happening is very similar to what happened with that weak rino father of communist health care — mit robedme. We stay the hell HOME!!! I wouldn’t scratch my back for that POS if he begged me on bended knee. Get these weaklings off the ballot or we are gone.
The details of the poll are linked at the site,
yes Skink... The paper are all VERY liberal rags.. But, Joe Arnold is a pretty straight up guy. The poll numbers look about right to me,
“If the people of KY want Mitch after all he has and hasnt done, they deserve to be represented by him.”
Unfortunately, it isn’t just about Kentucky.
the bigger story is the republican challenger beats bitch mcconnell if the election was held today.
