Bluegrass Poll: McConnell in Trouble in Kentucky
A new Courier-Journal Bluegrass Poll finds Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in a dead heat with challenger Bruce Lunsford (D), 41% to 41%, among likely voters.
However, McConnell does inch ahead 45% to 44% "when undecided likely voters who were leaning toward a candidate were included into the poll results."
Knocking off McConnell would dramatically help Democrats in reaching 60 seats in the U.S. Senate.
Said Larry Sabato: "If Lunsford is actually doing this well, its got to be because the public is so upset by the economic meltdown and may be blaming the legislative leaders. If this is true, Democrats may win a lot more seats in both the House and the Senate than people are predicting."
