Daniel…..Kentucky Senate: First RELIABLE Poll after the Primaries from WHAS-TV and the Louisville Courier-Journal done by Survey USA shows Republican Randall "Rand" Paul (R-NY) with a 6-Point lead

Hello Folks and Good Afternoon!

We’ve the first RELIABLE Survey out for the Kentucky Senate Race after the Primaries. According to the WHAS-TV / Louisville Courier-Journal Bluegrass Survey USA Poll Republican Randall “Rand” Paul (R-KY) leads Democrat State Attorney General John William “Jack” Conway (D-KY) by 6-Points.

Folks, this is a real Race now. We’ve some work ahead of us to bring Paul over the Finish Line in November. Looking at the Crosstabs it contains some “Warnings” for Paul. Conway leads him in Louisville by one single Points. That’s almost CERTAINLY going to change.

As you would expect Conway leads Paul by double digits in Eastern Kentucky while Paul leads in the rest of the State.

  1. Wonder what “libertarian” Paul thinks about this oil spill?

    Wouldnt his “libertarianism” tell him that BP is TOTALLY responsible for the cleanup and the federal government has NO role to play here?

    Speak up Doc

    Inquiring minds want to know if youre for real or(as I suspect)

    A hypocrite and a liar!

  4. Certainly its “up for discussion”

    All these articles about who is ahead in the horse race are mildly intereting

    But the real questions relate to the candidates beliefs and how they would act in office

    Your view is disingenuous in the extreme

    In other words since we ARE in Iraq

    All discussion relating to a candidates opinion thereof is of no significance

    If we are just gonna talk about

    “Whos ahead”

    Then this is nothing but

  5. Hey Jack …Candidates lie all the time to get your vote…….

    And we ALL talk about who’s ahead….

    People must make independent judgements on who they trust and want…You’re right on the that accord……

  6. In my view all these polls being published have almost NO value

    Any race which is within ten points six months out like this

    Is fluid and up for grabs

    I mean someones ahead by theree points six months out

    Big deal

  7. Again you are right…But we all have fun trying to stake out our postions and argue them!
